BRICKFIELDS Asia College’s (BAC) commitment to transform lives through education is an approach that prepares its students in the best way possible, making them highly employable.
The brave and insightful students choose to pursue a degree that is part of the social science framework. Despite the stereotypes of social science degree holders finding difficulty in getting a job or earning much with one, we now have a wealth of data that proves otherwise. Many world leaders whether in government, business, or nonprofit sectors are disproportionately drawn from graduates with skills in the social sciences.
What makes social science majors so predisposed to success is the promotion of soft skills and flexible qualities. The skills and qualities include critical thinking, oral and written communication, interpersonal, teamwork, technical, analytical, organisational know-how and problem-solving.
All these attributes are important to employers and organisations that must contend with the rapidly globalised world that grows more complex by the day. Indeed, perhaps the main reason why graduates in these fields end up in leadership and managerial roles is their ability to see the bigger picture.
BAC is well known for providing more than 200 pre-university and degree programmes in the fields of law, business, accounting and finance, marketing, economics, human resources, logistics and mass communications, among others. With campuses in the cities of Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya, BAC is a prestigious, comprehensive and highly affordable option for world-class degrees in the social sciences.
BAC provides a wide range of subjects in the arts and sciences for the A-Levels while offering students the option of choosing either the Express Route (11 months) or Standard Route (18 months). BAC’s A-Level students have received the Top in the World Outstanding Cambridge Learner Award for their excellent results in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and last year.
