Our MBA classrooms were conducive to facilitate rich, flexible and open-minded interaction among students and lecturers when discussing practical case studies. I benefited greatly from the education given and now I realise that there is so much more I can do after graduating from UKM-GSB.
As a medical doctor and a healthcare administrator, the MBA programme trajectory has undoubtedly boosted both my professional and personal development; entailing opportunities for broader exposure, organizing events and having the privilege of meeting prominent corporate individuals.
In a nutshell, pursuing MBA at UKM GSB has proven to be fulfilling with the vast diversity of professionals, industry driven and qualified members of faculty and the well packaged course module offered. Very pleased that I have successfully achieved my course and it has inspired me to keep learning.
I chose UKM GSB for some reasons. Firstly, the one year full time course suits me well. I guess I wouldn’t want to suffer more than one year in the classrooms but one year, I guess I could give it try. Secondly, I love MODULAR concept. You finish one by one, not cramping everything at the end of the semester. I love it.
With 16 years of working experience in the industry and the government environment, I find that every day is a day of learning and here with UKM GSB, they are preparing you to be a doer and a thinker at the same time. And of course, you must enjoy what you do in order to produce the best result.
Learning under the supervision of experienced lecturers is the best part of this journey. They did not only conduct classes as part of requirement, they taught me knowledge beyond books and the realm of business administration which made the entire journey of MBA, practical and knowledgeable.
Studying at UKM-GSB has been a wonderful and unforgettable experience for me. Not only did it broaden my international horizon due to GSB’s multicultural, open and dynamic atmosphere, but also it empowered me to transform my career to higher management role because of the commitment of GSB to provide the highest standard of education in the region.
Through the practical projects and extracurricular activities, the lecturers empower the students to go beyond their limits. The friendly and helpful staffs are always ready in providing information and facilitating the students. The purpose is to help students striving not only in academic achievement, but also in personal development which will be advantages in achieving career goals.
Throughout my MBA journey, I have gained deep understanding of enough business theories and their applications in the real business world scenarios. Beautifully, the faculty did not merely focus on lecture-mode syllabus but also give equal importance to active learning of project management, training mode, and other activities.
