Happiness all over as a bounty of MMU alumni, also known as “GEMS” attended and 500 profiles have been gathered and updated at Seven (7) Chapters of “Alumni Meet & Greet” held between 4 April and 20 May 2017. The happy reunion took place in seven different locations namely MMU Melaka Campus; Kelab Darul Ehsan, Selangor; TM Convention Centre (TMCC), Kuala Lumpur; Grand Continental Hotel, Kuantan; Vistana Hotel, Pulau Pinang; MMU Cyberjaya Campus; and MMU Johor Campus.
The inaugural series, done in seven chapters was very positively co-organised by Centre for Alumni, Student Affairs Division, and MMU Alumni Society and with the support from all academic faculties, centres, and support units. Each chapter was graced by distinguished MMU Management Representatives except for the one in TMCC where the event was officiated by Datuk Bazlan Osman, Executive Director / Deputy Group CEO of Telekom Malaysia Berhad.
The aims of Meet & Greet series were to gather updated profile of MMU alumni graduated since 2000-2016, and to share numerous, exciting news about their alma mater, MMU. It also served as a perfect avenue to inform the GEMS about the newly strengthened roles of MMU Centre for Alumni (CfA), plus near upcoming events planned involving all of them.
CfA was established to foster close relationships with the bounty of distinguished Alumni that MMU has been privileged to educate over the years. By building strong ties with these celebrated GEMS, CfA hopes a greater number of them would be more compelled to come back and offer their treasured support to MMU, in many ways i.e. not just monetary, but essentially by exchanging collaborative ideas and expertise, sharing experiences with Pre-Alumni, making joint researches, and many more.
