The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - WORK & STUDY -

Mo­hamed Anif grad­u­at­edg with a Master of Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion ( MBA) in 2014. He says, “From day one, I was im­pressed by the qual­ity of the teach­ing at AeU. Every­thing was ex­tremely top notch. It’s what you would ex­pect from a busi­ness pro­gramme.

“An­other thing that im­pressed me about the pro­gramme was the cal­i­bre and di­ver­sity of my class­mates. Their ex­pe­ri­ences and re­sumes were re­ally im­pres­sive. The in­ter­ac­tions we’ve had and what I’ve learnt from group projects and on­line class­room dis­cus­sions are great.”

When asked about learn­ing in an on­line class­room, he says, “I got more per­sonal at­ten­tion and in­ter­ac­tion than I’ve got­ten in the past from some of my on- cam­pus learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ences. I think it has a lot to do with how AeU cre­ates classes that fos­ter in­ter­ac­tion.”

AeU’s unique for­mat pro­vides the flex­i­bil­ity of learn­ing on­line with the in­ter­con­nect­ed­ness of a vi­brant global com­mu­nity.

This whole new level of en­gage­ment and in­ter­ac­tiv­ity gives work­ing pro­fes­sion­als such as Mo­hamed Anif the op­por­tu­nity to ad­vance their ca­reers and make their mark any­where in the world.

“The flex­i­ble learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence that I en­joyed dur­ing my study al­lowed min­i­mal dis­rup­tion to my fam­ily and work com­mit­ments. It also helped me over­come the chal­lenges that I faced in ad­just­ing my time and roles as a pro­fes­sional, hus­band and fa­ther.”

Af­ter grad­u­a­tion, Mo­hamed Anif is look­ing for­ward to lever­ag­ing the new con­tacts he has made and fo­cus­ing on what comes next.

“My per­sonal goal for earn­ing an MBA was that I wanted a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of busi­ness con­cepts – I def­i­nitely achieved that. Now, I’m look­ing for­ward to ex­plor­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties in my com­pany that in­volve more lead­er­ship and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties,” he says.
