B.Sc. Business Mathematics (Hons) Receives AUN-QA Accreditation
One of SQS's programme, i.e. B.Sc. Business Mathematics (Hons) has been accredited by the Asean University Network Quality Assurance (AUN-QA). This is the second programme under the Univesiti Utara Malaysia (UUM) which have been accredited by the body. The first was Bachelor of International Affairs (Hons) offered by the School of International Studies.
The AUN-QA auditors team led by Assoc. Prof Dr. Tan Kay Chuan from the National University of Singapore (NUS) and Dr. Leni Sofia Heliani from Universitas Gadjah Mada have visited UUM on the 22nd - 24th April 2015 to audit the programme. Prior to the visit, the team has reviewed the Self-Assessment Report (SAR) of the programme which encompasses 15 main criteria.
Overall, the programme has successfully surpassed the satisfactory level which has been set by the AUN-QA. The major achievements are in the aspects of programme's content and structure, quality of academic staff, staff development programmes, students' support and consultation, students' quality, infrastructure and facilities and the stakeholders' satisfaction.
We hope that the success of B.Sc. Business Mathematics (Hons) will boost the chance of accreditation for another SQS programme, i.e. B.Sc. Decision Science (Hons) which have also been audited by the AUN-QA team.
The Vice Canchellor, Prof Dato' Wira Dr.Mohamed Mustafa Ishak, congratulated the Dean of SQS as well as the staff for their effort in obtaining such recognition. He also suggest that the success is a proof of UUM's academic quality and indicates that UUM is in a good position to achieve its strategic plan to become an eminent management university.
