Climb­ing the ca­reer lad­der

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - WORK & STUDY -

SINCE its early days as the na­tion’s pre­mier provider of busi­ness ed­u­ca­tion, SEGi Uni­ver­sity and Col­leges now of­fers a wide range of pro­grammes un­der its Fac­ulty of Busi­ness and Ac­count­ing, in­clud­ing the MBA ( Master of Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion).

SEGi of­fers a new break­through method to en­able stu­dents to pur­sue a post­grad­u­ate pro­gramme at their own con­ve­nience, es­pe­cially for high- level busi­ness de­ci­sion mak­ers or as­pi­rants who want to climb the ca­reer lad­der.

PACE ( Pro­fes­sional and Con­tin­u­ing Ed­u­ca­tion) is a con­sor­tium of global uni­ver­si­ties that en­ables adult learn­ers to ad­vance at their own pace and com­plete their stud­ies with the as­sur­ance that they are able to at­tend to other obli­ga­tions and have a ful­fill­ing work- life bal­ance.

Stu­dents have a choice to se­lect the mode of study that is best for them. They have the op­tion of at­tend­ing ei­ther week­end or evening classes, or to opt for sup­ported learn­ing where in­stead of at­tend­ing sched­uled classes at a phys­i­cal venue, stu­dents can log in for their on­line classes at any time of the day.

They only need to at­tend work­shops at their near­est au­tho­rised SEGi lo­ca­tion twice a month.

The other mode is in­de­pen­dent learn­ing, where stu­dents study mostly on­line and only need to at­tend in­ten­sive re­vi­sions at their near­est au­tho­rised SEGi lo­ca­tion once a month.

With these choices, stu­dents have the op­por­tu­nity to net­work with fel­low course mates, meet their lec­tur­ers and gain any ad­di­tional sup­port they may need while they com­plete their stud­ies.

Stu­dents also have the in­de­pen­dence to com­plete their stud­ies as fast as they want to. The num­ber of sub­jects to pur­sue in a se­mes­ter is en­tirely up to the stu­dents.

SEGi pro­vides a guided learn­ing plan to en­sure stu­dents can get the best from the lessons, in­clud­ing study guides and strate­gies for cop­ing with course­work and ex­am­i­na­tions.

Here are some of the wide range of post­grad­u­ate busi­ness pro­grammes to pur­sue un­der PACE that in­clude qual­i­fi­ca­tions from ei­ther SEGi Uni­ver­sity or Uni­ver­sity of South­ern Queens­land ( Aus­tralia), Uni­ver­sity of Sun­der­land ( United King­dom), Uni­ver­sity of Green­wich ( United King­dom) or York St John Uni­ver­sity ( United King­dom).

This pro­gramme in­cludes ma­jors in ei­ther gen­eral management or global busi­ness or a spe­cial­i­sa­tion in ei­ther strate­gic hu­man re­source management, project management, strate­gic mar­ket­ing, fi­nance or dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion.

Grad­u­ates of this pro­gramme are equipped with the var­i­ous as­pects of sales, fi­nance and eco­nomics while learn­ing the lat­est the­o­ries and best prac­tices in busi­ness and earn recog­ni­tion by ma­jor­ing or spe­cial­is­ing in one par­tic­u­lar field of busi­ness.

The pro­gramme is for pro­fes­sion­als who would like to ac­quire a broad range of fi­nan­cial plan­ning skills. This pro­gramme pro­vides stu­dents with es­sen­tial back­ground ma­te­rial to con­duct busi­ness and fi­nan­cial plan­ning align­ment.
