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.
