The students were enrolled in various postgraduate programmes such as the Doctor of Philosophy, Doctor of Philosophy (Postdoctoral), Doctor of Business Administration (DBA), Master of Business Administration (MBA) and Master of Science.
The arrival of the new batch of postgraduate students was welcomed by Prof. Dr. Shahizan Hassan, the acting Dean of OYAGSB and other officers at OYAGSB Studio.
In his welcoming speech, Prof. Dr. Shahizan said, all students should feel very proud of being selected to continue their studies at OYAGSB.
"Education is very important because it does not only expand a person’s knowledge, but it also helps with career development.
"Students have made the right choice by registering for the programme under OYAGSB especially for the Master of Business Administration (MBA) programme. It has taken us three years to get the recognition from the Association of MBAs (AMBA) and we have succeeded in getting the recognition last year," he said.
He added that OYAGSB is now actively working to position itself not only at the national level but also at the international level and OYAGSB is a step closer to getting the renowned accreditation from The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).
A postgraduate student, Nur Hidayah Sukery, 24, said she is proud and grateful for the opportunity to continue her studies in the Master of Science (Finance) programme. She did her Bachelor degree at Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) Merbok.
The students then attended their academic briefing sessions according to their respective programmes: Assoc. Prof. Dr. Nor Azila Mohd Noor presented the programme briefing for the Doctor of Business Administration (DBA); Dr. Awanis Ku Ishak for the PhD and Masters by Research programmes; Dr. Zahiruddin Ghazali for the Master of Business Administration (MBA) programme and Dr. Subramaniam a/l Sri Ramalu for the Master of Science programme.
