their SEGi degree parchments.
The arrangement was sealed via a signing of MOA between Emeritus

and Professor Steven Olivier, University of Abertay Dundee Pro-Vice

The SEGi University College homegrown business degree programmes which

Management (Hons) programmes with specialisations available in General
Management, Financial Management, Supply Chain Management, Marketing
Management and Human Resource Management, as well as the 4-year
Bachelor of Accounting (Hons) programme.
The recognition of SEGi’s homegrown degree awards by the University of
Abertay Dundee is testament of the high quality of teaching, research and
facilities offered by the former.
It also translates into substantial cost-savings for SEGi students who will
obtain a separate qualification from a leading university from the United
Kingdom upon completion of their studies in Malaysia at SEGi University
College, without additional modules or time needed to qualify.
The University of Abertay Dundee, based in Scotland, is highly ranked for its

experience through a 3-month internship at renowned national and multi-
national companies. The graduates will thus be able to transfer knowledge
acquired in their respective field of study to real-world work.

our degree programmes. This means students must choose current topics for
research projects. Consequently, we add commercial value to our students
and arm them with the most relevant, updated knowledge and skills. This
particular component also develops students’ critical thinking,
entrepreneurship, problem-solving and decision-making skills,” said Emeritus
Professor Dr. Muhamad Awang.
