On 3 October 2017, Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Zamzamzairani, the MMU’s Board of Director held a discussion with the university’s alumni and academicians at the ‘Chat With Tan Sri Zamzamzairani’ session at Chancellery Building MMU Cyberjaya. He shared his insight on the differences of MMU when they were students and MMU now as in the eyes of staff and academicians.
He commented that we should know that the world has changed with existing generation gap, hence, we have to adapt to any changes so that we can go along with the demand of current generation.
According to his perspective, MMU can be an entrepreneurial university because the new generation is different. As the technology evolves and we are moving to the Fourth Industrial Revolution, jobs would not be available as today. We also have to understand and equip our students with needed requirement when they leave university and how they can be successful in the future.
Furthermore, MMU has to train its graduates at least 80%-90% ready to be the entrepreneur, which every subject taught must have an element of entrepreneurship and this can be- an example of needed requirement for future market. The academicians in MMU admitted that this university was a trendsetter compared to other universities in Malaysia. Therefore, MMU should continue to be a trendsetter in higher education industry as our university has always set an exemplary quality standards.
