The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Education Guide -

MAN­AGE­MENT & Sci­ence Univer­sity (MSU)is one of Malaysia’s top uni­ver­si­ties, with a fo­cus on de­vel­op­ing and de­liv­er­ing q ual­ity hu­man cap­i­tal in na­tional and global crit­i­cal-need ar­eas.

Among these ar­eas are Medicine, Health Sciences, Phar­macy, In­for­ma­tion Sciences and En­gi­neer­ing, be­sides Busi­ness Man­age­ment and Pro­fes­sional Stud­ies, Ed­u­ca­tion and So­cial Sciences, Hos­pi­tal­ity and Culi­nary, and Mu­sic and Fash­ion.

As an ap­plied and en­ter­prise univer­sity, MSU of­fers pro­grammes of study at post­grad­u­ate, un­der­grad­u­ate and foun­da­tion lev­els, through con­nected path­ways that ad­mit stu­dents from all walks of life and per­sonal back­grounds.

MSU gives pri­or­ity to build­ing both stu­dents and fac­ulty and en­hanc­ing grad­u­ate em­ploy­a­bil­ity.

The foun­da­tion pro­gramme at MSU is fo­cused on de­liv­er­ing univer­sity prepara­tory pro­grammes to eq uip SPM/SPMV school-leavers for di­rect en­try to their pre­ferred MSU un­der­grad­u­ate cour­ses.

The pro­gramme will as­sist them to de­velop their lan­guage, study skills, cul­tural aware­ness and sub­ject-spe­cific knowl­edge, en­sur­ing that stu­dents are well pre­pared for con­tin­u­a­tion in their bach­e­lor de­gree stud­ies.

MSU of­fers seven ar­eas of spe­cial­i­sa­tion: Sci­ence Bi­ol­ogy/Health Sci­ence, In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy, Law, Busi­ness, En­gi­neer­ing and Tech­nol­ogy, Vis­ual Art and the TESL.

Stu­dents with a keen in­ter­est in the Health Sciences dis­ci­plines, the Foun­da­tion (Sci­ence Bi­ol­ogy/Health Sci­ence)is a good op­tion to start with. This is an ideal pro­gramme for those in­ter­ested to be­come a med­i­cal prac­ti­tioner and to con­tinue with the Bach­e­lor of Surgery and Bach­e­lor of Medicine (MBBS) stud­ies.

The MBBS pro­gramme is of­fered through the MSU In­ter­na­tional Med­i­cal School (IMS)at MSU main cam­pus in Shah Alam or at its off­shore cam­pus in Ban­ga­lore, In­dia.

Those in­ter­ested in the law and com­merce pro­fes­sion might want to con­sider the Foun­da­tion in Law; stu­dents who have com­pleted this pro­gramme can en­rol in the Bach­e­lor in Law and Com­merce pro­gramme.

The Foun­da­tion in Busi­ness is de­signed to meet the in­creas­ing de­mand for pro­fes­sion­als in Busi­ness Man­age­ment and Ac­count­ing.
