Students can gain two degrees with new international programme

Published: 14 February 2018

A unique dual-degree programme will enable business students to gain a Euro-Asian MBA/MSc

Dual Degree for Malaysian students

The new two year programme is offered by University of Glasgow Adam Smith Business School and Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) Graduate School of Business (GSB).

The students will study for a year at the USM Graduate School of Business and spend a further year studying at the University of Glasgow. Upon completion of their studies they will receive two degrees. The MBA qualification will be awarded by USM, and UofG will award students the MSc.

The programme will train the next generation of business leaders to be responsible and effective leaders who understand the challenges of working in a global environment and recognise the importance of the sustainability of that environment.  

The College of Social Sciences is awarding £150,000 of scholarships to Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) students to study this programme. The programme, which will start in September 2018, already has six students who will receive a £10,000 UofG scholarship, and more places are available.

A formal agreement was signed between the two Universities in late January. It builds on a strong relationship between the two universities and continues the long-standing engagement the University of Glasgow has with Malaysia.

USM and University of Glasgow are both global universities and uniquely placed to work together to deliver an educational programme of this type.
