"The position of Professor is the highest achievement that every academic dreams of when their career of choice is that of an educator. It is the pinnacle of achievement in the career of an academic.

The Vice-Chancellor said that, today, as a management university, UUM was no longer viewed askance, or looked down upon, as a direct consequence of the university’s attainment of a myriad impressive accolades, including several prestigious accreditations, which have placed UUM on par with the University of Malaya (UM), specifically in the field of business management.

The Vice-Chancellor also emphasised the need for the academic staff to develop the Centres of Excellence (CoE) at UUM through gainful collaborative undertakings with foreign universities and invigorating their research and publication activities.

At the ceremony, a total of 12 Associate Professors, including the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Student Affairs and Alumni), Assoc. Prof. Dr. Abdul Malek Abdul Karim, received official letters formally promoting them to the position of Professor with effect from 3 July.
