The registration process began as early as 8:30 am at Lecture Room 8 and 9 at the OYAGSB Building. Later, the Coordinator of the Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) Programme, Prof. Dr. Nor Azila, who represented the Dean of OYAGSB, delivered the welcoming speech. Students were then given an academic briefing.
In the welcoming speech, Prof. Dr. Nor Azila congratulated the students for being selected to pursue their postgraduate studies at OYAGSB UUM.
"You are all very lucky to be chosen to be the students of OYAGSB. This is because only about 40 per cent of successful applicants is admitted here.
"As students of OYAGSB, all of you should feel proud and privileged to know that OYAGSB has gained two international accreditations namely the Association of MBAs (AMBA) and the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). And, OYAGSB is well on its way to obtaining another international accreditation which is the European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS), making OYAGSB the only business school in Malaysia to complete the triple crown accreditation, " she said.
Overall, a total of 327 students, who comprised 138 local students and 189 international students, were offered admission to OYAGSB for the 2016/2017 September academic session.
