PTPL Col­lege is now MSU Col­lege

The Sun (Malaysia) - - SUNBIZ - BY BERNARD CHEAH

IN mov­ing for­ward in the coun­try's ed­u­ca­tion in­dus­try, PTPL Col­lege has been re­branded as MSU (Man­age­ment & Sci­ence Univer­sity) Col­lege.

The re­brand­ing in­volves its 10 cam­puses lo­cated in Shah Alam and Am­pang in Se­lan­gor, Kuala Lumpur, Negeri Sem­bi­lan, Kedah, Pe­nang, Tereng­ganu, Sabah, Sarawak and Ke­lan­tan.

MSU and MSU Col­lege pres­i­dent Prof Tan Sri Dr Mohd Shukri Ab Ya­jid pointed out that the re­brand­ing process was a leap for­ward for the col­lege group, which set up its first cam­pus in Pe­nang in 1981, and has since pro­duced thou­sands of grad­u­ates in var­i­ous dis­ci­plines into the work in­dus­try.

"In this re­brand­ing ex­er­cise, we are fo­cused on two things – to make PTPL Col­lege as part of MSU's in­ter­na­tion­al­i­sa­tion process to reach out to in­ter­na­tional stu­dents, as well as to re­fo­cus its pro­grammes to en­sure that the Tech­ni­cal Vo­ca­tional Ed­u­ca­tion and Train­ing (TVET) com­po­nent be­comes the col­lege's main pil­lar," he said this dur­ing the re­brand­ing of PTPL Col­lege cer­e­mony re­cently.

Mohd Shukri also noted that there are about 10,000 stu­dents study­ing in all the cam­puses around Malaysia, and ex­pressed hope that the fig­ures would grow with the re­brand­ing.

Higher Ed­u­ca­tion Min­is­ter Datuk Seri Idris Ju­soh, who graced the event at the MSU cam­pus in Shah Alam, con­grat­u­lated the ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tion on its re­brand­ing.

"This is a step for­ward and a new fu­ture for MSU. This is a suc­cess story of a pri­vate higher ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tion in the coun­try, which has de­vel­oped by es­tab­lish­ing a cam­pus in al­most each state in the coun­try, with each hav­ing a holis­tic fac­ulty for its stu­dents," he said.

MSU Col­lege em­pha­sises on Health Sci­ences, In­for­ma­tion Sci­ences, En­gi­neer­ing, Hos­pi­tal­ity, Busi­ness Man­age­ment and Pro­fes­sional stud­ies.

Through the Malaysian Qual­ity Eval­u­a­tion Sys­tem for Pri­vate Col­lege (MyQuest) 2014/2015, MSU Col­lege has been given a six-star rat­ing for var­i­ous cat­e­gories – which were based on the out­stand­ing achieve­ment of the col­lege in pro­vid­ing ed­u­ca­tion ser­vices that meet the cri­te­ria and stan­dards set by the Higher Ed­u­ca­tion Min­istry.
