MESSAGE FROM THE DEAN

dean-1

Welcome to the Faculty of Business (FOB), Multimedia University website. Thank you for your interests in the faculty. On behalf of all our faculty, staff and students, we invite you to explore our website to learn more about our programmes, faculty and contributions in business education. Located in the historical city of Melaka, the faculty delivers accredited business programmes which meets the current progression of knowledge and industry needs.  We are committed to inspire and nurture entrepreneurial and principled minds to advance the well-being of our society.

Our role is to educate and enable our students to thrive both professionally and personally in a highly competitive global environment. We strive to provide opportunities for students to excel in a technology-rich business community.

The faculty offers a Foundation in Business programme which prepares students for a Bachelor’s degree study, majoring in either accounting, banking and finance, marketing management, human resource management, international business, or knowledge management. In addition to our degree programme, FOB also offers three postgraduate programmes leading to a graduate degree in Master of Business Administration (MBA) or Master of Philosophy (M.Phil) and the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D). Our niche programme in the Bachelor of Business and Knowledge Management is the first of such programme in Malaysia. The blend of management fundamentals and knowledge technologies conducted in collaboration with SAP University Alliances adds values to our prospective graduates in a technology-driven business environment.

We have much to revere – from the quality of our students and academic programmes, to our experienced academics and support staff, as well as collaborations with various industry partners. The Faculty understands the importance of industry exposure, and hence, provides opportunities for students to engage in various industry-linked events and activities, bringing the real world much closer to them. The University also provides immense resources to the faculty, including a number of data analysis software, subscribed journals, business databases, publication and thesis databases, and various library services to support research projects and theses writing.

I encourage you to visit our campus and our city, which will help you to envision being in a programme that fits your interests and goals. We look forward to welcome you soon.
