PETALING JAYA: Manchester Business School Worldwide has launched its new Manchester Business School Malaysia Centre at Sunway University College to provide part-time Master of Business Administration (MBA) programmes to executives, without taking a career break.
Manshester Business School (MBS) dean Professor Michael Luger said the world-class MBA has been designed specifically to fit the lifestyle and career demands of the global executives.
"We aim to train experienced people in business, where the typical age profile of students are around 34 or 35-year-old with six years experience in a company.
"These are the people who need to have a potential and world-class training to serve the best to the company," he told the media after the launch on Tuesday.
He said MBS is expecting a continuous flow of about 300 students for each in-take at its Malaysia Centre in the future, adding that it currently has 80 students.
"We now have major presence in Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai, Brazil, Russia and Jamaica. Our goal is to continue to develop new business leaders in this 21st century as we have started since 1965," he said.
Sunway University College MBA programmes head Dr Marie-Aimee Tourres pointed out that 60% out of the 80 students now are engineers.
Its students are from across the country as well as few of them are international students from Thailand, Korea and Indonesia.
