The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Post Graduate -

THERE is no doubt that 21st cen­tury eco­nomic dy­nam­ics have changed the land­scape of busi­ness at home and abroad.

Global or­gan­i­sa­tions and es­tab­lish­ments at all lev­els of man­age­ment in cor­po­rate and in­dus­trial sec­tors seek cost-ef­fec­tive ways to stay afloat in the red ocean.

One vi­tal ques­tion re­mains: can the cur­rent hu­man cap­i­tal or tal­ent re­sources adopt and adapt to the mega­trends of dis­rup­tive changes?

The com­bined ap­proaches of Man­age­ment & Science Univer­sity (MSU) to 21st cen­tury learn­ing and in­dus­try-driven ed­u­ca­tion have built strong tra­di­tions that en­hance cur­rent and fu­ture pools of hu­man cap­i­tal as­sets to ad­dress the chal­lenges of 21st cen­tury knowl­edge econ­omy.

Global com­pa­nies in Malaysia, the Asean Eco­nomic Com­mu­nity and Asia-Pa­cific are con­stantly on the look­out for innovative ap­proaches to tal­ent en­hance­ment in sus­tain­ing busi­ness lead­er­ship be­yond the na­tional bound­ary.

Of­fered by its Grad­u­ate School of Man­age­ment (GSM), MSU’s Master of Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion (MSU MBA) is geared to de­velop only the most crit­i­cal skills for the busi­ness and man­age­ment mar­ket­place.

The MSU MBA re­mains high on the pri­or­ity list among pro­fes­sion­als and lead­ers in gen­er­at­ing busi­ness-cen­tric skills to meet hu­man cap­i­tal de­mands for new busi­ness per­spec­tives around the globe.

Adopt­ing global stan­dards of in­dus­trial best prac­tices, MSU MBA’s mo­d­ules pi­o­neer new di­rec­tions in build­ing ca­pac­ity and en­hanc­ing key abil­i­ties for all lev­els across the man­age­ment, en­tre­pre­neur­ial, man­age­rial, fi­nan­cial, in­for­ma­tion and com­mu­ni­ca­tions tech­nol­ogy, gov­er­nance and hu­man re­source spec­trums.

The MSU MBA seeks to in­cor­po­rate real-world prac­tices in the class­room for an im­mer­sive 360° ex­pe­ri­en­tial learn­ing.

Ad­vo­cat­ing the United Na­tions Sus­tain­able De­vel­op­ment Goals, the MSU MBA in­cor­po­rates prac­ti­cal di­men­sions in de­vel­op­ing top-tier man­age­ment skills en­com­pass­ing en­tre­pre­neur­ial lead­er­ship, strate­gic man­age­ment, Is­lamic fi­nance, project man­age­ment, and key busi­ness and man­age­ment knowl­edge for the 21st cen­tury mar­ket.

The MSU MBA’s com­bi­na­tion of af­ford­able fees, world-class teach­ing and lead­ing in­dus­try col­lab­o­ra­tions has en­abled the cre­ation of a sus­tain­able net­work of grad­u­ates and man­agers who are well pre­pared to meet the de­mands of 21st

MSU’s se­ries of CEO Talks and En­trepreneur Talks pro­vides MBA stu­dents with the op­por­tu­nity to be up close and per­sonal with global chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cers to learn about cross-sec­tional ap­proaches across the busi­ness and man­age­ment spec­trum.
