Assalamualaikum and Salam Sejahtera to all UUM College Of Business (COB) website visitors. I am pleased to welcome you to the UUM COB's official website. This website will serve as a platform for students and lecturers from various academic schools under COB to connect with each other and showcase the latest activities conducted by the various schools under the COB umbrella to the website's visitors.
UUM COB is one of three (3) colleges besides UUM College Of Art And Sciences (CAS) and UUM College Of Law, Government, and International Studies (COLGIS). This college mainly offers business related academic programmes such as Business Management, Islamic Business, Accounting, Finance, Economics, Banking, Technology Management and Logistics. There are five(5) schools under COB namely the School of Business Management (SBM), the School of Economics, Finance & Banking (SEFB), the Tunku Puteri Intan Safinaz School of Accountancy (TISSA), the School of Technology Management and Logistics (STML), and the School of Islamic Business Studies (IBS). Apart from academic schools, COB also has a Student Development & Alumni Office (PPA) that serves as a centre to assist UUM COB's students in various career guiding activities in order to ensure that they have a bright and meaningful future, upon graduating from UUM. Additionally, PPA also plays an active role in identifying and connecting COB's prominent and successful alumni with its present students. Such activities can motivate our students to stay committed towards achieving their dreams.
Meanwhile, the AACSB Accreditation Unit is responsible for sustaining the international AACSB accreditation obtained in 2016. The international accreditation of AACSB has placed UUM and COB in particular, alongside other management universities in the world. In line with the success of the AACSB accreditation, the Beta Gamma Sigma (BGS), UUM Chapter was set up to ensure that students who are BGS members can earn numerous benefits from UUM and the United States. Among the benefits are the priority of having credited or uncredited mobility programs, opportunity to undergo industrial training at multinational corporations, priority to leadership course programs, the chance of having their own BGS Lounge, and the opportunity to pursue various Graduate Employability related courses conducted at UUM. In addition to that, UUM COB is also working very hard to achieve its place as one of the top 100 in QS World rankings by subject ranking of business & management, accounting & finance, and economics & econometrics.
Just as UUM aims to become the 'Eminent Management University', UUM COB is set to become a renowned Business College in the areas of learning, teaching, research, publication and consultancy. UUM COB has always supported the university's aspirations, objectives and strategic plans to place UUM on par with other well established public universities. May 2018 be the year that will boost UUM College of Business to a higher level in achieving its vision, mission and goals.

UUM College of Business
UUM COB has a passion for excellence that drives the learning, teaching, and research agendas. The staff, students and alumni of UUM COB comprise an incomparable network of people setting the highest standards for business leaders and successful entrepreneurs in the industry.
UUM was set up in 1984 to serve as the 'Management University' of the country, and UUM COB claims its origin from that year. Initially, the business and management courses were delivered under a faculty system. In 2008, the faculties were merged to form the current College of Business. Business administration, accountancy, finance, economics, banking, marketing, human resource management, insurance and risk management, Islamic banking and finance, muamalat, operations management, and technology management curricula integrate with innovative methods and ideas to nurture business leaders as well as entrepreneurial potential.
Over the past 27 years, UUM COB has educated many business leaders, accounting professionals, executives, managers and government officials, and seen its graduates progress to higher level positions in Malaysia and in the region. In this period, UUM COB has generated over 30,000 undergraduates. The MBA, MSc, DBA, and PhD programmes are also crucial, and play an important role in supporting research and achieving the mission of the College. The research activities of UUM COB are recognised and also achieve competitive ranking in the country as well as in the international arena. The adequate financial resources granted by the Ministry of Higher Education (MoHE) support over 500 academic staff, dedicated to the mission of UUM COB, as well as a team of administrative and support staff for meeting the requirements of administration, students, research, teaching and learning. UUM COB reviews its academic performance periodically, and, at a minimum, has the local accreditation authority, the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) guidelines, standards and codes of practice to fulfill as a benchmark. Concerted efforts are also underway to secure a place for the Graduate School as Top Business School. Already a member of the AACSB and EFMD, the College is also making serious preparations to be accredited internationally.
