Bring­ing the world into the lec­ture halls

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Education Guide -

WORLD is­sues rou­tinely cross bor­ders, which is why global un­der­stand­ing is nec­es­sary to equip fu­ture gen­er­a­tion to meet the de­mands of a fast glob­al­is­ing world.

Man­age­ment and Sci­ence Univer­sity (MSU) boosts its stu­dents’ global ex­po­sure op­por­tu­ni­ties through a re­cent Mem­o­ran­dum of Agree­ment (MoA) with ASEAN fac­ul­ties of phar­macy and the Phar­macy Ed­u­ca­tion Con­sor­tium of Thai­land (PECT).

The MoA was signed at the Thai Phar­macy Ed­u­ca­tion Con­fer­ence 2017, held at the end of June at the Chu­la­longkorn Univer­sity.

At­tended by 27 deans, in­clud­ing the dean of the MSU’s School of Phar­macy, the con­fer­ence dis­cussed var­i­ous is­sues such as a stop-smok­ing cam­paign, among oth­ers.

The new col­lab­o­ra­tion, which in­volved nine ASEAN uni­ver­si­ties in­clud­ing MSU and 18 PECT mem­bers com­pris­ing Thai uni­ver­si­ties, is set to boost re­gional in­ter-pro­fes­sional ed­u­ca­tion.

On the home front, MSUri­ans can look for­ward to in­creased in­ter­na­tional re­searches, con­fer­ences and sem­i­nars, as well as new places and peo­ple to dis­cover through MSU pro­grammes of Global Mo­bil­ity (GMP), Global Lead­er­ship (GLP) and Global In­tern­ship (GIP).

Stu­dents from the new part­ner uni­ver­si­ties will have the op­por­tu­nity of study­ing in Malaysia, ei­ther as in­bound stu­dents through GMP or through at­tend­ing MSU Sum­mer School pro­grammes.

Ven­tur­ing abroad is highly en­cour­aged for stu­dents at MSU. The three pro­grammes – GMP, GLP and GIP – send MSUri­ans to cities world­wide, help­ing them be­come global cit­i­zens of the 21st cen­tury.

MSU grad­u­ates would have trav­elled abroad at least once as un­der­grad­u­ates by con­vo­ca­tion day, pre­par­ing them for the world be­yond the grad­u­a­tion hori­zon.
