Forecast Sijil Pelajaran Ma­­laysia (SPM) results will no longer be used

(The Star Online) - School leavers will no long­er be able to use forecast Sijil Pelajaran Ma­­laysia (SPM) results to enter pre-university or foundation programmes from Ja­­nuary. The Education Ministry notified heads of private institutions of higher education that such results would no longer be accepted as admission qualifications, unlike in previous years. The circular shocked the private education industry, which has over the past 30 years, relied on admissions based on forecast results. Students sit for the SPM examinations in November and results are usually released at the end of March the following year. Each year, about 30,000 students register using their school trial exam results for pre-university programmes that start in January. Representatives of the Malaysian Associa­tion of Private Colleges have met senior Education Ministry officials over the issue. Mapcu president Datuk Dr Parmjit Singh said the association had appealed for the decision to be reviewed. Doing so, h

The 12 Month MBA – Is It Possible?

From - There are many higher education providers who offer the Master of Business Administration (MBA) , however there are also many time frames that you can complete it in. The smallest of which is the 12 Month MBA, which has students of a three year MBA wondering how this is all possible. The fact of the matter is, regardless of the time frame in which it is completed, every MBA will have the same amount of content and learning outcomes. This is necessary in order for the degree to be accredited and for the provider to be able to deliver it in a certain format. So in answer to the big question – yes, you can get your MBA in 12 months, and here is how. Many of the most highly ranked universities in the world such as Oxford and Cambridge offer a 12 Month MBA programme. Traditionally, they experience high levels of success in terms of enrolments, completion rates and graduate outcomes due to the shorter nature of the commitment. The 12 Month MBA from the Aust

Should You Get an MBA?

From - At least once a month an ambitious and hard-working person in their 20s asks me, “Should I get an MBA?” I earned my MBA from Stanford’s Graduate School of Business in 2000, and since 2007 I’ve been an Instructor and an internal coach back at the GSB, helping hundreds of students develop their leadership and interpersonal skills. Here’s how I respond to those inquiries. First, it’s critical to determine whether your expectations for an MBA are aligned with what the degree will likely do for you. MBA programs offer three different types of benefits, all of which vary tremendously from one school to another. 1. Practical leadership and management skills. Management education has changed significantly over the last few decades. Previously it focused on quantitative analysis in areas such as finance and operations, with little emphasis on other aspects of organizational life. As a result MBAs were often seen as bean-counters myopically focused on data

Most businesses in Malaysia will outsource the content marketing to either an advertising agency or a public relations (PR) agency.
