He highlighted that the students are free to do any business, as it is important in preparing themselves with the entrepreneurship world.

We want to make this campus more entrepreneurs. We are opening up for entrepreneurs to the UKM campus,” he said during the 100 Entrepreneurs @ Chancellory Square, UKM recently.
