A decade of impacting lives
AT a function held at its Cheras campus, YPC International College celebrated 10 years of a fruitful and successful partnership with Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU).
Under the partnership, YPC students are also offered direct pathways to complete their degree programmes at the LJMU campus in Liverpool, United Kingdom.
PARTNERS FOR CHANGE To date, over 3,000 students have graduated from LJMU degree programmes and secured good jobs in the market.
The alliance between YPC and LJMU kicked off with the introduction of the BSc in eBusiness Technology and Management programme in 2006. Today, degree programmes offered by LJMU have developed and gone on to include areas of business, accounting, multimedia and management.
At the event, LJMU chancellor Sir Brian Leveson described the partnership as more than a business or academic arrangement. “It is a partnership rooted in shared values. Both the college and the university are committed to extending educational opportunities to as broad a section as possible, providing support and instruction to enable students to achieve their full potential,” explained Levesen.
REWARDS AND AWARDS After his speech, Levesen presented the LJMU Doctor in Business Administration (DBA) Scholarship awards to two academic staff of the college. The award is annually presented and is worth £33,750 (RM180,000). It comes as aid to staff offering a doctorate programme at the Liverpool campus for three years.
YPC International College principal Datuk Dr Noel Robert congratulated LJMU on its recent Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) for Higher Education review. LJMU had exceeded the set standards and is the first university to receive two commended judgments for the quality and enhancement of student learning opportunities.
Said Robert, “Through the partnership with LJMU, YPC International College has left visible footprints in the education arena, and our contribution to education has brought significant progress to Malaysia’s human capital development.”
