At­tain­ing a world-class de­gree lo­cally

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Education Guide -

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.
