NURTURING students since 1986, HELP University’s Faculty of Business, Economics and Accounting (FBEA) has been one of the leading providers of business and related programmes.
The faculty offers honours degree programmes in Accounting, Finance, Economics, Business Analytics, Entrepreneurship, Management, Human Resource Management, International Business, Marketing, Hospitality Management, Tourism Management and Business Psychology, as well as Diploma in Business.
Besides that, these programmes offer attractive and flexible credit transfer programmes to Australia and the United Kingdom.
Recently, two of its students received scholarships to study at the University of the West of England (UWE) in Bristol, United Kingdom.
Interestingly, both of them chose to study accountancy at HELP because of FBEA’s stellar reputation in the accounting programmes.
One such student is Ho Meng Yu who obtained a scholarship to study the final year of his bachelor’s degree in Accounting and Finance at UWE.
He was introduced to the Bachelor of Business (Accounting) (Hons) programme offered at HELP at a higher education fair by FBEA dean Stephen Wu.
He also chose the programme because of the exemptions granted by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) as well as the flexibility to complete his studies abroad.
HELP’s accounting programme is one of the first accounting programmes offered by a private university in Malaysia to be accredited by certified practising accountants (CPA).
On top of that, the programme is also granted maximum exemptions by professional bodies such as ACCA and The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW).
Another recipient of the UWE scholarship Sanford Yanesh Lopez completed the final year of his bachelor’s degree in Accounting and Finance at UWE.
He chose to study at UWE because of the university’s good track record in producing skilful and job-ready graduates.
Aside from the degree programmes, the Diploma in Business is another popular programme.
This programme prepares students for admission into the second year of business-related degree programmes at HELP and internationally recognised universities.
Moreover, it is widely accepted by universities overseas as being equivalent to their first year course of studies, such as the University of Queensland, University of Western Australia, University of New South Wales, Macquarie University, Leeds University and Liverpool University.
However, the majority of the students have chosen to complete a bachelor’s degree in business at HELP upon completion of the two-year diploma programme.
These students would be able to complete a bachelor’s degree in business in less than two years.
Exclusive transfer option
One of Australia’s top eight universities, The University of Queensland (UQ) Australia, offers HELP Diploma business graduates a flexible 2+2 credit transfer arrangement to complete a degree in Business or Commerce at UQ.
UQ would provide all students enrolling in eligible pathway programmes at UQ the Global Connect Scholarship which is worth about RM32,000.
Meanwhile, Diploma in Business students who progress into a Bachelor of Business programme are eligible for a subsidised study trip to Australia or China to enhance their study experience.
Enhancing students’ digital growth
Students of FBEA will also get hands-on experience of live stock-trading at the Bloomberg Finance Lab at HELP’s RM25mil facility, the Business Analytics and Technology Innovation Centre (BATIC).
All students are eligible to attend a free Certificate in Data and Business Analytics course and earn a certification in Bloomberg Market Concepts via the Bloomberg terminals.
This certification course is also embedded in the Bachelor of Business (Finance) (Hons) programme which is affiliated with the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Institute – preparing students for their CFA exams.
Furthermore, Bachelor of Business Analytics (Hons) graduates would be awarded with a certificate from SAS Institute – that provides analytics solutions to some 83,000 businesses around the world – upon completion of the programme.
HELP’s FBEA is also the first and only business school in Malaysia to be awarded the Premier Digital Technology Institution (PDTI) status By the Malaysian Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC).
