FOR the fourth year running, Taylors Business School (TBS) awarded scholarships to students from both Chinese independent schools and national schools.
For the recent intake, RM750,000 worth of scholarships were given to 19 students who enrolled in either Taylors Business Foundation programme or the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) Bachelor of Business programmes. To date, about RM5mil worth of scholarships have been given out to more than 160 students.
Said TBS chief operating officer Ooi Chee Kok: We will continue to provide opportunities for students who need financial assistance to realise their dreams of gaining a well-respected business degree from our partner, the University of Technology Sydney.
A special feature of the TBS-UTS business programme is the numerous co-curricular activities that students can choose to join. Among them is an exchange programme with the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, as well as internship opportunities with corporations like PricewaterhouseCoopers, DaimlerChrysler, National Panasonic and Loreal.
