-

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.
