En­rich­ing global lead­er­ship pro­gramme

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Higher Education -

WITH the rise of glob­al­i­sa­tion and in­ter­na­tion­al­i­sa­tion as a world­wide phe­nom­e­non, it is vi­tal for stu­dents to ex­pand their worldview, to be taken out of their com­fort zone and seek op­por­tu­ni­ties to ap­pre­ci­ate other cul­tures.

As an ef­fort in con­tin­u­ing its global lead­er­ship ini­tia­tive, Man­age­ment and Sci­ence Univer­sity (MSU) re­cently sent a group of stu­dents for a six-day and five-night trip to South Korea.

The group com­prised 16 stu­dents from the Bach­e­lor in Ed­u­ca­tion (TESL), Bach­e­lor in Early Child­hood Ed­u­ca­tion and Bach­e­lor in Coun­selling and Guid­ance pro­grammes.

Nur­tur­ing global mind­set

MSU’s Global Lead­er­ship Pro­gramme (GLP) chan­nels yet an­other ef­fort by the univer­sity to nur­ture the global mind­set nec­es­sary for 21st cen­tury lead­er­ship.

Ex­ten­sive in­ter­na­tional ex­po­sure and in­ten­sive in­dus­trial train­ing add to com­pe­tency en­rich­ment of MSU stu­dents, scor­ing the univer­sity a high 98.6% in grad­u­ate em­ploy­a­bil­ity.

The GLP is one of MSU’s in­ter­na­tion­al­i­sa­tion ef­forts in en­sur­ing global ex­po­sure among its stu­dents.

Lead­er­ship skills

Fo­cused on cre­at­ing lead­ers of to­mor­row and de­vel­op­ing a global mind­set among stu­dents, the pro­gramme pro­vides op­por­tu­ni­ties for them to en­hance their learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence and de­velop lead­er­ship and global skills.

Th­ese skills will be ap­plied to their learn­ing, vol­un­teer­ing and par­tic­i­pa­tion in ac­tiv­i­ties con­ducted at the in­ter­na­tional or lo­cal level. Through­out the trip to Seoul, the group of stu­dents vis­ited Ewha Wo­mans Univer­sity, So­rak Na­tional Park, Nam­san Hanok Vil­lage and sev­eral other tourist at­trac­tions.

Among the other ac­tiv­i­ties or­gan­ised in­clude a visit to the Nam­san In­ter­na­tional Kinder­garten, which is an independent early years school that re­ceives ed­u­ca­tional con­sult­ing from the Seoul For­eign School.

As one of Malaysia’s top uni­ver­si­ties, MSU gives pri­or­ity to qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion and the im­por­tance of cre­ative teach­ing method­olo­gies to­wards pro­duc­ing qual­ity grad­u­ates.

Per­sonal en­rich­ment

Apart from in­cor­po­rat­ing in­ter­na­tional ex­po­sure in the stu­dent learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, ex­ten­sive in­dus­trial train­ing com­po­nents and per­sonal en­rich­ment com­pe­tency are also blended into the pro­gramme of study to en­sure the grad­u­ates’ em­ploy­a­bil­ity.

MSU’s award-win­ning homegrown pro­grammes are among the best in the re­gion.

They are metic­u­lously crafted to en­hance the grad­u­ates’ po­ten­tial and meet the strin­gent stan­dards set by both lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional bod­ies.

The univer­sity as­pires to pro­vide ed­u­ca­tion that will en­hance the em­ploy­a­bil­ity of its grad­u­ates and at the same time, en­rich the stu­dents’ learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence with eth­i­cal and moral val­ues.
