Attaining a world-class degree locally
IF you are searching for a place that offers an international business degree at a reasonable cost in Malaysia, consider the Bachelor of Science, Business and Management course by the University of London (UOL).
This course is available starting August at the Advance Tertiary College (ATC).
ATC utilises a combination of traditional and contemporary teaching and learning strategies so that its students are well-versed and well-rounded in all aspects.
This three-year course is academically directed by the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), featuring subjects such as Human Resource Management and Financial Management.
Since 1895, LSE has been regarded as an international centre of academic excellence and innovation.
Former students and teachers at LSE include 16 Nobel Prize winners, 35 past or present heads of state and around 60 current members of the UK Houses of Parliament.
Graduating with a world-class business degree from the prestigious UOL significantly boosts career opportunities for students.
Highly sought after for their versatility and leadership skills, UOL graduates have gained jobs at top organisations, including law firms, multinational companies and major professional services firms such as EY Malaysia.
Some have gone on to pursue further study at some of the world’s best universities, including Oxford, Cambridge, LSE, Harvard and the National University of Singapore.
Moreover, with syllabus and examinations that are set to a global standard, students can continue with the course without any difficulties even if they were to relocate to another country. This is the beauty of a standardised system set by the UOL.
Upon graduation, students will automatically become a member of the University of London International Programme, which offers instant connection to members in over 180 countries.
This will help students build their network, develop relationships and move forward in their careers.
Grant Thornton International is one of the world’s leading accounting and consulting firms with more than 2,600 partners in over 100 countries.
Foo Kon Tan Grant Thornton LLP is a member firm of Grant Thornton in Singapore and it currently employs around 20 UOL graduates.
Ong Soo Ann, a partner at Grant Thornton, found UOL graduates who studied at Singapore Institute of Management to be a good fit for their firm.
“In a nutshell, I would say they are every employer’s dream employee.
“They possess a certain level of maturity, willing to learn, independent and street smart. Professionals need a full range of skills apart from technical proficiency,” he said.
You can enjoy these advantages at a reasonable price, without the cost of relocation.
Those who are truly ambitious to reach the top are encouraged to enrol for the course this August at ATC.
Students who have completed their diplomas are eligible for exemptions and are also welcomed to register for this programme.
This course is approved by the MQA and students can opt to apply for a PTPTN loan.
