Award for a winning tie-up

UNIVERSITY Technology Sydney’s (UTS) business degree programme, offered jointly with Taylor’s Business School (TBS), has won the Malaysia Australia Business Council’s (MABC) Small medium enterprise of the year award. 

The award was presented by minister in the Prime Minister’s department Datuk Dr Mustapa Mohamed at the MABC annual dinner. About 400 members and VIP guests, including Australian High Commissioner and MABC co-patron James Wise, graced the occasion. 

MABC committee chairman Eric Pringle said the award would foster business excellence and promote bilateral trade and investment ties. 

Since the inception of the programme in 1993, more than a thousand students have graduated. The programme currently has about 1,034 students.  

Pringle said UTS has a good reputation as far as marketability and employability of its fresh graduates is concerned.  

“The University is known as the 'powerhouse' of-Australian business. The tie-up between the two institutions has led to transfer of technology from Australia to Malaysia and encouraged the sharing of academic resources,” he added. 

UTS director in Malaysia Peter Meyer said UTS was honoured to receive the award. He paid tribute to Taylor's College “without whom we would not have had such success.” 

“The UTS-TBS collaboration has helped to strengthen Malaysia-Australia bilateral relationships by providing students with the option of completing their courses in Australia,” he explained.  

He attributed two key factors for the success of the business degree programme – the fact that it was industry-driven and the high quality of its graduates . 

The UTS-TBS programme also supports students who are financially disadvantaged by offering scholarships exceeding RM1mil.
