UUM receives global accreditation
OBTAINING a Masters degree is a goal that many strive to achieve, let alone get an opportunity to endeavour, and now Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM) is offering students a quality programme to attain a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree.
UUM recently received global accreditation for its MBA degree from the Association of MBAs (AMBA), an impartial global body that regulates and maintains global standards for all MBA, Doctor of Business Administration and Master of Business Administration and Management programmes.
With this accolade, students of UUM’s MBA programme will also receive global accreditation and can stand proud alongside those from 70 other universities which have also received the recognition, among them Oxford and Cambridge.
“This is indeed a landmark achievement concerning the academic quality that is obtained at UUM, specifically for our MBA programme, which is now unequivocally on par with those of other world-renowned universities,” said UUM vicechancellor Prof Datuk Seri Dr Mohamed Mustafa Ishak.
Ooi Wei Keat, a current MBA student at UUM, is also delighted with the news: “I feel proud to be one of UUM’s current MBA students. I can feel myself growing and maturing through the MBA programme.
“With AMBA’s accreditation, I believe UUM MBA degree holders can achieve more advancement in their careers and gain more knowledge in entrepreneurship development,” added Ooi.
