MAN­AGE­MENT & Sci­ence Uni­ver­sity (MSU) is a premier uni­ver­sity in Malaysia and among the top in­sti­tu­tions in South-East Asia.

It of­fers spe­cialised un­der­grad­u­ate and post­grad­u­ate pro­grammes in the ar­eas of busi­ness, man­age­ment, medicine, health sciences, in­for­ma­tion sciences, en­gi­neer­ing, ed­u­ca­tion and hos­pi­tal­ity.

MSU pri­ori­tises qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion, in­cor­po­rat­ing 21st cen­tury learn­ing in its teach­ing de­liv­ery to pro­duce holis­tic grad­u­ates.

The in­cor­po­ra­tion of global mo­bil­ity pro­grammes and ex­ten­sive in­dus­trial train­ing com­po­nents into stu­dents’ learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ences en­sures the high­est stan­dards of im­pact­ful in­no­va­tion, em­ploy­a­bil­ity and in­dus­trial rel­e­vancy of MSU grad­u­ates.

Real-world sce­nar­ios are in­cluded in the class­room learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. Strate­gic think­ing and thought-pro­vok­ing case stud­ies equip stu­dents with a higher level of prac­ti­cal prob­lem-solv­ing abil­i­ties.

All mod­ules are rig­or­ously de­signed with in­dus­trial and cor­po­rate in­put as well as an open­ing vi­gnette to ma­jor events and real-world is­sues around the globe.

MSU pro­fes­sors come from di­verse cul­tural back­grounds, en­gage in cut­ting-edge re­search, and re­lent­lessly pur­sue un­par­al­leled aca­demic ex­cel­lence and sci­en­tific in­no­va­tion.

They have con­ducted high­im­pact re­search and pub­lished thought-pro­vok­ing aca­demic pa­pers across a broad range of busi­ness, in­dus­try and pro­fes­sional ar­eas. They have also worked in and taught at all lev­els of pro­fes­sional and in­dus­trial plat­forms.

Their con­tri­bu­tions have made mean­ing­ful and con­crete im­pact in the global com­mu­nity at home and abroad.

They have also taught uni­ver­sitylevel busi­ness cour­ses in di­verse coun­tries, bring­ing their rich mul­ti­cul­tural her­itage to Malaysia.

The post­grad­u­ate pro­grammes at MSU are care­fully crafted to cul­ti­vate lead­er­ship and mean­ing­ful re­search con­tri­bu­tions that ad­dress in­dus­trial chal­lenges at the high­est man­age­ment level.

Due to the tremen­dous state of flux within busi­ness and man­age­ment com­mu­ni­ties, top man­age­ment must adapt rapidly to stay com­pet­i­tive, rel­e­vant and strate­gi­cally po­si­tioned to tackle global trends by pos­sess­ing the rel­e­vant post­grad­u­ate qual­i­fi­ca­tions.

MSU of­fers Doc­tor of Phi­los­o­phy (PhD), Mas­ter in Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion (MBA) and other mas­ter’s pro­grammes that em­pha­sise and recog­nise in­no­va­tive re­search, sci­en­tific knowl­edge and in­dus­trial ap­pli­ca­tion on both do­mes­tic and in­ter­na­tional plat­forms.

A PhD is the high­est de­gree awarded by MSU. It sig­ni­fies the pin­na­cle of aca­demic and pro­fes­sional stand­ing. Doc­toral train­ing in­volves close work­ing re­la­tion­ships with lead­ing fac­ulty mem­bers on projects of key in­ter­est, with an in­dus­trial and sci­en­tific fo­cus.

With ad­vanced fa­cil­i­ties and tech­ni­cal sup­port, MSU pro­vides an ex­cel­lent aca­demic cli­mate for post­grad­u­ate en­gage­ment with fac­ulty mem­bers.

MSU fac­ulty mem­bers are highly ac­tive in top-level re­search in a wide range of ar­eas and in­ter­ests, re­quir­ing in­no­va­tive ap­proaches that push the bound­aries of in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary re­search.

MSU’s ad­vanced de­grees at MBA, MSc and PhD lev­els cover wide ar­eas, in­clud­ing man­age­ment, busi­ness, ac­count­ing, fi­nance, ed­u­ca­tional man­age­ment and lead­er­ship, ed­u­ca­tion (Teach­ing English as Sec­ond Lan­guage), com­puter sci­ence, in­for­ma­tion and com­mu­ni­ca­tion tech­nol­ogy, food ser­vice tech­nol­ogy, bio­med­i­cine, en­gi­neer­ing, ap­plied sci­ence, biomed­i­cal sciences, in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy, phar­macy and clin­i­cal phar­macy.

These pro­grammes are of­fered un­der the School of Grad­u­ate Stud­ies and Grad­u­ate School of Man­age­ment.

The award-win­ning study pro­grammes of the uni­ver­sity meet strin­gent stan­dards set by lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional bodies.

Ac­cred­i­tors in­clude the Malaysian Qual­i­fi­ca­tions Agency, the United King­dom’s Ac­cred­i­ta­tion Ser­vices for In­ter­na­tional Schools, Col­leges & Uni­ver­si­ties, and Japan’s Al­liance on Busi­ness Ed­u­ca­tion & Scholarship for To­mor­row.

The post­grad­u­ate pro­grammes at MSU are care­fully crafted to cul­ti­vate lead­er­ship and mean­ing­ful re­search con­tri­bu­tions.

MSU has been rated twice as an Ex­cel­lent-sta­tus uni­ver­sity in the Rat­ing for Higher Ed­u­ca­tion In­sti­tu­tions in Malaysia (Se­tara) and was recog­nised as the most en­tre­pre­neur­ial uni­ver­sity of 2016 by the Higher Ed­u­ca­tion Min­istry.

MSU’s most re­cent recog­ni­tions in­clude the Pu­tra Brand Awards 2017 and the Best Brand in Ed­u­ca­tion for Lead­er­ship and Hu­man Cap­i­tal De­vel­op­ment 2017.

In the QS Stars rat­ing sys­tem, the uni­ver­sity re­ceived five stars for its teach­ing, fa­cil­i­ties, grad­u­ate em­ploy­a­bil­ity, so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity and in­clu­sive­ness.

MSU is placed 217th in the QS World Uni­ver­si­ties Rank­ings and among the top 1.8% of the best uni­ver­si­ties in the QS Asia Uni­ver­sity Rank­ings 2018.

MSU of­fers a wide range of spe­cialised pro­grammes taught by pro­fes­sors who ac­tively en­gage in top-level re­search.
