The Sun (Malaysia) - - POSTGRAD -

THE Man­age­ment & Sci­ence Univer­sity (MSU) is one of Malaysia’s top univer­si­ties that fo­cuses strongly in the crit­i­cal ar­eas of stud­ies that en­com­passes Medicine, Health Sci­ences, Phar­macy, In­for­ma­tion Sci­ences & En­gi­neer­ing, Busi­ness Man­age­ment & Pro­fes­sional Stud­ies, Ed­u­ca­tion & So­cial Sci­ences, Hos­pi­tal­ity & Culi­nary and Mu­sic & Fash­ion.

As Malaysia’s best teach­ing and learn­ing univer­sity, MSU gives pri­or­ity to qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion and the im­por­tance of cre­ative teach­ing method­olo­gies to­wards pro­duc­ing qual­ity and holis­tic grad­u­ates. Be­sides in­cor­po­rat­ing in­ter­na­tional ex­po­sure in the stu­dents learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, ex­ten­sive in­dus­trial train­ing com­po­nents and per­sonal en­rich­ment com­pe­tency el­e­ments are also blended into the pro­gramme of study to en­sure the grad­u­ates’ em­ploy­a­bil­ity.

MSU, through the Grad­u­ate School of Man­age­ment (GSM), recog­nises that to­day’s global com­pa­nies re­quire man­agers with a broader out­look. Through its in­ter­na­tion­al­i­sa­tion ef­fort MSU at­tracts top stu­dents, em­ploy­ing fac­ulty mem­bers with overseas ex­pe­ri­ence and form­ing ef­fec­tive links with busi­ness.

MSU-MBA of­fers stu­dents an ex­pe­ri­en­tial learn­ing in a cross-cul­tural com­mu­ni­ca­tions, the op­por­tu­nity to build a global net­work and the pos­si­bil­ity to cre­ate fu­ture in­ter­na­tional ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties. In ad­di­tion, stu­dents will have the op­por­tu­ni­ties to de­velop man­age­ment skills and tech­niques, to ob­tain strate­gic ori­en­ta­tion and im­ple­ment the strate­gies for­mu­lated.

The MSU-MBA pro­gramme helps stu­dents to de­velop the skills in lead­er­ship, en­trepreneur­ship, strate­gic man­age­ment and de­ci­sion­mak­ing and trains them to be­come suc­cess­ful lead­ers in their area and en­tre­pre­neur­ial thinkers in the most com­pet­i­tive mar­kets. This pro­gramme also pro­vides suf­fi­cient knowl­edge to stu­dents to un­der­stand the var­i­ous facets of an or­gan­i­sa­tion so as to for­mu­late suc­cess­ful strate­gies. It also in­stils a great deal of con­fi­dence.

Ac­tive Learn­ing Ex­er­cises act as a ba­sis for ver­bal anal­y­sis and dis­cus­sion, al­low­ing for a rich learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment by in­te­grat­ing the “real” world into the class­room. This broaden stu­dents’ un­der­stand­ing of is­sues by invit­ing them to think be­yond the text ma­te­rial.

MSU-GSM has es­tab­lished col­lab­o­ra­tive ed­u­ca­tional links with a num­ber of top overseas univer­si­ties in UK, USA, Aus­tralia, New Zealand, among oth­ers. The Global Mo­bil­ity Pro­gramme (GMP) will pro­vide the op­por­tu­nity for post­grad­u­ates to de­velop an aware­ness and ap­pre­ci­a­tion of other cul­tures, po­lit­i­cal and economic en­vi­ron­ments, and ap­proaches of do­ing busi­ness.

Pro­fes­sors of the MSU - MBA are ac­com­plished ed­u­ca­tion­ists who have also made sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tions to the busi­ness world, both as aca­demics and work­ing pro­fes­sion­als.
