MBA PROGRAMME

These recently revised MBA programme, which have been co-developed with our industrial partners, fits better with the requirements of the industry as well as with the working candidates /students. Among the improvements we have made include:

  • A management programme that fulfills the requirements of the Malaysian Qualifying Agency (MQA) and leads to MBA
  • MBA based on the lock step, modular approach
  • Fast-paced, action-packed, 1-year full-time MBA in UKM, Bangi
  • Flexible programme on every alternate weekend, 2-year part-time MBA in UKM Kuala Lumpur
  • Highly customizable to the needs of the industry in terms of content, delivery and duration of studies
  • Special focus on Action Learning and Leadership Development
  • Variety of industrial-driven specialised and elective courses

Whilst strongly grounded in academic theory, the MBA emphasizes on practical learning where industry relevant knowledge transfers provide real management solutions and techniques for the MBA Graduates to apply in their respective Organizations.

Our MBA is instrumental and highly practical in ensuring high competency of the Graduates in realizing their potentials and longterm career prospects through the job-related nature of the courses.

Lock-step Modular Programme

Our programme follows a lock-step modular approach, arguably one of a kind in Malaysia. This means our students will only study one training like module/course at a time. Full Time students will attend 2-day lecture a week whereas Part Time students will have a 2-day lecture in alternate weekends.
In a way our students could see themselves as attending 96-day training courses over 12, 18 or 24 months to complete their MBA.

Alternate Weekend

Our Part Time programme takes 24 months to complete. The classes are conducted every alternate weekend. As much as we would want our students to focus on their studies, we would also want them to continue to balance and focus on their jobs and families. Indeed, our students are our hopes for a better future. Typical class scheduling:
• Full Time - two 7-hour classes a week during weekdays from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm
• Part Time - two 7-hour classes a weekend on alternate weekends, also from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm. This means if there are classes on Saturday and Sunday on this weekend, then there will be no class on the following weekend.
