Pres­ti­gious busi­ness de­gree at ATC

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Higher Education -

START­ING this Au­gust, the Ad­vance Ter­tiary Col­lege (ATC) will of­fer stu­dents the op­por­tu­nity to study lo­cally in Malaysia, and grad­u­ate as in­ter­na­tional stu­dents of the Univer­sity of Lon­don (UOL).

The Bach­e­lor of Science Busi­ness and Man­age­ment de­gree from the UOL is one of the most pres­ti­gious busi­ness de­grees in the world.

Stu­dents can in­crease their ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties with a UOL de­gree, as UOL grad­u­ates are sought af­ter for their re­source­ful­ness and lead­er­ship skills.

Trans­fer­able skills

ATC’s Busi­ness School Course Co­or­di­na­tor Anna Matthew ex­plained: “The course en­tails sub­ject-spe­cific knowl­edge and im­por­tant trans­fer­able skills that are well re­garded to the work­force.

“This in­cludes crit­i­cal think­ing and prob­lem-solv­ing; the abil­ity to think cre­atively and as­sim­i­late new ideas; self-dis­ci­pline and or­gan­i­sa­tion; strate­gic think­ing and anal­y­sis.”

This course is aca­dem­i­cally di­rected by the Lon­don School of Eco­nomics and Po­lit­i­cal Science.

Since 1895, The Lon­don School of Eco­nomics and Po­lit­i­cal Science (LSE) has been re­garded as an in­ter­na­tional cen­tre of aca­demic ex­cel­lence and in­no­va­tion.

Past stu­dents and teach­ers at LSE in­clude 16 No­bel Prize win­ners and 35 past or present heads of state and around 60 cur­rent mem­bers of the UK Houses of Par­lia­ment.

Com­pet­i­tive edge

Study­ing with the UOL In­ter­na­tional Pro­gramme im­parts stu­dents the com­pet­i­tive edge in global job mar­kets.

Grad­u­ates from UOL have ob­tained jobs in many sec­tors in­clud­ing: banks and fi­nan­cial ser­vices com­pa­nies such as Ernst & Young, Deutsche Bank and Citibank; ma­jor tech­nol­ogy com­pa­nies, in­clud­ing Cisco and IBM; in­ter­na­tional agen­cies such as the United Na­tions and World Health Or­ga­ni­za­tion; multi­na­tional com­pa­nies such as Pana­sonic, Sony and Unilever and var­i­ous lo­cal em­ploy­ers.

Upon grad­u­a­tion, stu­dents will be­come an alumni of the UOL In­ter­na­tional Pro­gramme, with mem­bers in over 180 coun­tries.

As part of a huge com­mu­nity, stu­dents can con­nect and net­work with one an­other, other alumni and the UOL’s aca­demic com­mu­nity on­line.

There are a num­ber of ben­e­fits en­joyed by the stu­dents from a broad lat­i­tude of Alumni Net­work. Stu­dents can take part in the global events, meet­ing other grad­u­ates in their aca­demic or pro­fes­sional field, or stay in con­tact with the univer­sity.

The Alumni Net­work’s pur­pose is to help build a life­long re­la­tion­ship with the UOL In­ter­na­tional Pro­gramme and each other.

By stay­ing in Malaysia, stu­dents also save on re­lo­ca­tion costs and ac­cess a world-class de­gree at a rea­son­able price.

This course is ap­proved by MQA and they can also ap­ply for a PTPTN loan to cover the costs.

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

The pro­gramme is unique as it al­lows stu­dents to fit their stud­ies around their own life­style.

They can pace their stud­ies and can study lo­cally by at­tend­ing face-to-face classes at ATC.

In light of ATC’s 30th year an­niver­sary, ap­pli­cants are en­ti­tled to ap­ply for the Tan Sri P. Ala­gen­dra Schol­ar­ships.

In ad­di­tion, ATC is also of­fer­ing 15% to 25% re­bates for diploma and de­gree pro­grammes.
