A world-class de­gree

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Higher Education -

DID you know that the Bach­e­lor of Sci­ence, Busi­ness and Man­age­ment de­gree from the Uni­ver­sity of Lon­don (UOL) is one of the most pres­ti­gious busi­ness de­grees in the world?

Start­ing this Au­gust, Ad­vance Ter­tiary Col­lege (ATC) of­fers you the op­por­tu­nity to study lo­cally yet grad­u­ate as a proud in­ter­na­tional stu­dent of UOL.

Boost your ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties with a UOL de­gree as its grad­u­ates are sought-af­ter for their ver­sa­til­ity and lead­er­ship skills.

“This course en­tails sub­ject spe­cific knowl­edge and im­por­tant trans­fer­able skills that are valu­able to the work­force, such as crit­i­cal think­ing and prob­lem-solv­ing; the abil­ity to think cre­atively and as­sim­i­late new ideas; self-dis­ci­pline and or­gan­i­sa­tion; strate­gic think­ing and anal­y­sis,” said the Busi­ness School course co­or­di­na­tor Anna Matthew.

This course is aca­dem­i­cally directed by the Lon­don School of Eco­nomics and Po­lit­i­cal Sci­ence (LSE), which has been re­garded as an in­ter­na­tional cen­tre of aca­demic ex­cel­lence and in­no­va­tion since 1895.

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.

Study­ing with the Uni­ver­sity of Lon­don In­ter­na­tional Pro­gramme pro­vides you with a com­pet­i­tive edge in the global job mar­ket.

UOL grad­u­ates have gained em­ploy­ment in many sec­tors, in­clud­ing banks and fi­nan­cial ser­vices com­pa­nies such as Ernst & Young, Deutsche Bank and Citibank; multi­na­tional com­pa­nies such as Pana­sonic, Sony and Unilever; ma­jor tech­nol­ogy com­pa­nies, in­clud­ing CISCO and IBM; in­ter­na­tional agen­cies such as the United Na­tions and World Health Or­gan­i­sa­tion; and var­i­ous lo­cal em­ploy­ers.

Upon grad­u­a­tion, you will au­to­mat­i­cally be­come a part of the vast alumni net­work of the Uni­ver­sity of Lon­don In­ter­na­tional Pro­gramme, with mem­bers from over 180 coun­tries. Here, you can con­nect with stu­dents, alumni and UOL aca­demic com­mu­nity on­line. Be­ing part of the alumni net­work pro­vides a wide range of ben­e­fits.

Be it tak­ing part in global events, meet­ing other grad­u­ates in your aca­demic or pro­fes­sional field or just stay­ing in con­tact with the uni­ver­sity, this net­work helps you build a life­long re­la­tion­ship with the in­ter­na­tional pro­gramme and each other.

By study­ing lo­cally, you save on re­lo­ca­tion costs while ac­cess­ing a world-class de­gree at a rea­son­able price.

This course is ap­proved by the MQA and stu­dents can opt to apply for a PTPTN loan to cover the cost.

Stu­dents who have com­pleted their diplo­mas are el­i­gi­ble for ex­emp­tions and are wel­comed to reg­is­ter for this pro­gramme.

With the unique pro­gramme, you can fit your stud­ies around your life­style.

You can choose how to pace your stud­ies and study lo­cally by at­tend­ing face-to-face classes at ATC.

The pro­gramme’s unique fea­tures are bound to boost stu­dent’s em­ploy­a­bil­ity.

As BDO LLP’s (Au­dit and As­sur­ance depart­ment) HR part­ner Jo­ce­lyn Goh puts it, “Grad­u­ates from the Uni­ver­sity of Lon­don are gen­er­ally quite hum­ble and they have a very pos­i­tive at­ti­tude to learn. Dur­ing the client meet­ing, they tend to ask the right ques­tions be­cause they will do re­search be­fore they are put on the en­gage­ment it­self.”

Reg­is­ter to­day and be on your way to ob­tain­ing a world-class de­gree.

This course en­tails sub­ject spe­cific knowl­edge and im­por­tant trans­fer­able skills that are valu­able to the work­force.
