The Sun (Malaysia) - - POSTGRAD -

GRAD­U­ATE study is one of the ed­u­ca­tion path­ways for those who want to im­prove their ca­reer prospects or job sat­is­fac­tion, those look­ing for an in­tel­lec­tual chal­lenge or those want­ing to pur­sue a long stand­ing in­ter­est.

Man­age­ment & Science Univer­sity (MSU) has de­signed flex­i­bil­ity in its grad­u­ate study en­vi­ron­ment for stu­dents to study in ways that works best for them.

The univer­sity's School of Grad­u­ate Stud­ies (SGS) of­fers ad­vanced de­grees at MSc and PhD lev­els cov­er­ing a wide area in­clud­ing Man­age­ment, Busi­ness, Com­puter Science, Ac­count­ing, Fi­nance, In­for­ma­tion and Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Tech­nol­ogy, Food Ser­vice Tech­nol­ogy, Biomedicine, Ed­u­ca­tional Man­age­ment and Lead­er­ship, Biomed­i­cal Sciences, En­gi­neer­ing, Phar­macy and Clin­i­cal Phar­macy.

PhD ed­u­ca­tion fo­cuses on train­ing in an orig­i­nal and in­de­pen­dent man­ner, while Masters de­grees are ei­ther in full re­search mode or course­work mode to pre­pare stu­dents for ca­reers in pub­lic or pri­vate sec­tors and pro­fes­sional prac­tice.

The grad­u­ate pro­grammes em­pha­sise a num­ber of dis­tinc­tive and de­sir­able fea­tures such as a high level of en­gage­ment be­tween lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional fac­ulty as well as grad­u­ates, and an en­vi­ron­ment that fos­ters a global com­mu­nity of schol­ars.

All pro­grammes are sup­ported and com­ple­mented with a wide range of in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary units which re­sult in the pro­mo­tion of in­tel­lec­tual ac­tiv­i­ties and re­search across the univer­sity.

SGS pro­vides sup­port to stu­dents through­out their learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence at MSU. It pro­vides a cre­ative and in­no­va­tive teach­ing and de­liv­ery, a global lead­er­ship pro­gramme and so­cial fa­cil­i­ties.

Work­ing with fac­ul­ties and non-aca­demic de­part­ments in­clud­ing in­dus­tries and other in­sti­tu­tions en­hances the stu­dents' ex­pe­ri­ence, and SGS is com­mit­ted to de­liv­er­ing qual­ity ser­vice that is exclusive to its grow­ing post­grad­u­ate com­mu­nity.

The PhD and Mas­ter pro­grammes are re­search based and de­grees will be awarded upon suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion of a the­sis. Ex­am­i­na­tions are by as­sess­ing the the­sis and re­search it is based on. A viva voce is re­quired for the PhD pro­gramme, while taught Masters de­grees of­fers spe­cific ar­eas. As­sess­ment of the taught pro­grammes are by as­sign­ments and writ­ten ex­am­i­na­tions.

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 el­e­ments are also blended into the pro­gramme to en­sure the grad­u­ates' em­ploy­a­bil­ity.

MSU’s pro­grammes meet the strin­gent stan­dards set by lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional bod­ies. The univer­sity has also re­ceived nu­mer­ous recog­ni­tions from the Malaysian and in­ter­na­tional ac­cred­i­ta­tion bod­ies.

Be­sides the Malaysian Qual­i­fi­ca­tion Agency (MQA), MSU is ac­cred­ited by the Ac­cred­i­ta­tion Ser­vices for In­ter­na­tional Col­leges (ASIC), UK and the Al­liance on Busi­ness Ed­u­ca­tion and Schol­ar­ship for To­mor­row (ABEST21), Ja­pan.

It is rated twice as an "Ex­cel­lent Sta­tus Univer­sity" by the Min­istry of Higher Ed­u­ca­tion (MOHE) through a rat­ing sys­tem on all uni­ver­si­ties in Malaysia. MSU is also se­lected as the 2015 fi­nal­ist for the En­trepreneur­ship Univer­sity-Pri­vate Univer­sity Cat­e­gory.
