Selangor Business School to begin mid-2017

SHAH ALAM, JAN 11: University of Selangor (UNISEL) expects its Selangor Business School (SBS) programme to begin mid-2017, located in Petaling Jaya.
Still in its final discussion stage, UNISEL Vice Chancellor Prof Datuk Dr Mohammad Redzuan Othman said that everything is running smoothly and encouragingly.
“We have identified a location for SBS in Petaling Jaya, but cannot announce it yet.
“The SBS is expected to start operations in the middle of 2017. At this early stage, we are making appointments, identifying the space, the field and so on,” he said.
He said that when contacted by SelangorKini to elaborate on the current development of SBS.
In the first phase, UNISEL is planning to take in only 100 students.
This move comes as the professional and semi-professional programme requires qualified lecturers.
“Actually, we already have a Faculty of Business and Accountancy in UNISEL with the most students.
“In other words, we already have a reputation in this field, only that SBS will focus more on post-graduate programmes.
“We cater to those who are interested and desire to continue their studies to a higher level,” he said.
According to Mohammad Redzuan, SBS is established to fill the void for those who are interested to continue their studies but have been rejected by certain parties.
“I’m sure SBS will be able to provide the space and platform for those who are interested.
“Our approach is that if there is a recognised degree, then they are eligible to join our programme,” he said.
The Selangor Government has allocated RM5 million in its 2017 Budget to establish the Selangor Business School offering MBA studies and for it to become an extension of the programmes in UNISEL.
