SETAPAK: The recent upgrading of Tunku Abdul Rahman College (KTAR) to university college status now allows it to offer degree programmes in addition to its diploma courses.
MCA president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said the degree courses would be different from those offered by Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman as these would focus more on technical and scientific research.
He also announced that the Bachelor of Commerce (Hons) and the Bachelor of Accounting (Hons) programmes had been granted maximum exemptions by global professional bodies such as Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and Chartered Institute of Management Accoun-tants (CIMA).
“Just as KTAR is constantly evolving, so is the country and the world at large. Our country currently faces a crossroad where we either take our economy to the next level or remain stuck in the middle income trap,” said Liow at a KTAR diploma convocation ceremony here yesterday.
KTAR’s campuses in Pahang and Sabah, added Liow, would also be building their own purpose-built campuses within the next two years to provide a more conducive environment equipped with modern learning facilities.
