Personal growth

LIFELONG learning is important for personal growth but it is equally, if not more, important for professional development.

According to Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye, continuous learning is essential for the survival of the country.

"As Malaysia moves towards a high-income economy in four years, Malaysians need to understand that education should no longer be seen as an endeavour only for the children and youth," he explained.

Instead, Lee urged Malaysians, young or old, working or unemployed, to pursue continuing their education to enrich themselves to meet the changing skills necessary to propel Malaysia towards achieving a high-income economy.

SEGi University & Colleges understands the value of continuous learning and therefore, they have launched the Professional and Continuing Education (Pace) for busy working adults who would like to pursue new knowledge while working, without having to compromise their work commitments and family responsibilities.

Pace allows busy working adults to earn a recognised qualification from a consortium of global universities, comprising of SEGi University Online, as well as the reputable UK and Australian universities. With Pace, students can decide the number of subjects to pursue in one semester, thus providing flexibility to graduate at their own pace.

Working closely with the United Kingdom's University of Sunderland (UOS) and University of Greenwich (UOG), and Australia's University of Southern Queensland (USQ), Pace offers a range of quality Master of Business Administration (MBA) programmes for students; UOS' MBA in General Management or Global Business, Master of Science in Telecommunication Engineering or Engineering Management and UOG's MBA in International Business, Master of Science in Information Systems Management.

Pace offers the flexibility to enrol whenever prospective students are ready; flexibility is given as there is no fixed intake. SEGi's guided learning place ensures only the best for students and this includes study guides and strategies for coping with the subjects which are assessed via projects and open book exams.
