De­liv­er­ing top-notch ed­u­ca­tion

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Education Guide -

IF you are search­ing for an in­ter­na­tional busi­ness de­gree and world-class ed­u­ca­tion at rea­son­able cost in Malaysia, reg­is­ter for the Bach­e­lor of Sci­ence Busi­ness and Man­age­ment course by the Univer­sity of Lon­don (UOL).

This course is avail­able start­ing Au­gust at Ad­vance Ter­tiary Col­lege (ATC). ATC uses a com­bi­na­tion of tra­di­tional and con­tem­po­rary teach­ing-learn­ing strate­gies so the stu­dent is well versed and well rounded in all as­pects.

With sub­jects such as Hu­man Re­source Man­age­ment and Fi­nan­cial Man­age­ment, this three-year course is aca­dem­i­cally di­rected by the Lon­don School of Eco­nom­ics and Po­lit­i­cal Sci­ence (LSE). Since 1895, LSE has been re­garded as an in­ter­na­tional cen­tre of aca­demic ex­cel­lence and in­no­va­tion.

Upon grad­u­a­tion, you are awarded a world-class busi­ness de­gree – you sig­nif­i­cantly in­crease your ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties with a qual­i­fi­ca­tion from the pres­ti­gious UOL.

UOL grad­u­ates are sought af­ter for their re­source­ful­ness 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. There are also some who have con­tin­ued to pur­sue fur­ther ed­u­ca­tion at some of the world’s best uni­ver­si­ties such as Ox­ford, Cam­bridge, LSE, Har­vard and the Na­tional Univer­sity of Singapore.

As for­mer stu­dent of ATC, Ju­laine Lee says, “ATC has as­sisted me to ex­cel in ed­u­ca­tion and widened my hori­zon of the busi­ness world.”

You can en­joy all of this without the cost of re­lo­ca­tion and at a very rea­son­able price. Those truly am­bi­tious to reach the top must con­sider reg­is­ter­ing for the course this Au­gust at ATC.

This course is ap­proved by the Malaysian Qual­i­fi­ca­tions Agency and you can also ap­ply for a PTPTN loan to cover the costs. Stu­dents who have com­pleted their diplo­mas are el­i­gi­ble for ex­emp­tions and are wel­come to reg­is­ter.

Since the syl­labus and ex­am­i­na­tions are set to a global stan­dard, the ad­van­tage of a stan­dard­ised sys­tem set by the UOL is that even if the stu­dent had to relocate to an­other coun­try, he can con­tinue his stud­ies from any part of the world. Upon grad­u­a­tion, you by de­sign be­come a mem­ber of the Univer­sity of Lon­don In­ter­na­tional Pro­gramme Alumni Net­work and in­stantly con­nected to mem­bers in over 180 coun­tries. You can ac­cess a wide range of stu­dent net­work, de­velop pro­fes­sional re­la­tion­ships, and fast track your ca­reer.

A part­ner at Grant Thorn­ton, Ong Soo Ann stated, “We find Univer­sity of Lon­don grad­u­ates who stud­ied at Singapore In­sti­tute of Man­age­ment a good fit for our firm. In a nut­shell, I would say they are ev­ery em­ployer’s dream. They pos­sess a cer­tain level of ma­tu­rity and are will­ing to learn, in­de­pen­dent and street smart. Pro­fes­sion­als need a full range of skills apart from tech­ni­cal pro­fi­ciency.”
