Dean Welcoming Note
Welcome to UKM Graduate School of Business – the business school that means business.
As one of the most senior public business schools within the region we strive to work with our partners in the public and private sectors in preparing for their future managers. Our close and constant collaborations with our stakeholders result in flexible and relevant academic programmes that focus on personal, managerial and industrial competencies. These competencies are aimed toward grooming exemplary, talented and responsible leaders who would be assertive and adept within their chosen, respective fields.
Today, the global transformation of higher education goes beyond academic programmes. At GSB we deliberate and question everything we do as to what impact we do bring to the society. Our events, research, projects, executive development training, consulting and publications, among others, ought to be relevant and must help enhance quality of life. We are indeed reconceptualizing and raising the bar of excellence in management education. That is our commitment – that is our raison d’être.
We aim high even when we know this is surely going to be a challenging venture. But we would not have started it were it not necessary. And if you embrace similar dream as we do, i.e. to make a difference, come aboard and take part in this exciting journey. You will never regret.
“The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it” – Michelangelo
