UUM National Golf Academy (UUMNGA)


Primarily established to develop and promote management education, UUM offers a number of academic programmes especially geared towards providing a broad spectrum of knowledge and intellectual skills in various management areas.

UUM National Golf Academy (UUMNGA) began as a non-academic unit at UUM, served as an administrator to the Center of Excellence for Golf Program (in Malay, Pusat Kecemerlangan Sukan Golf or PKS Golf UUM). It was sanctioned by the Ministry of Higher Education (MoHE) in 2010 to enroll young golf talents at tertiary level education based on their SPM qualification and their accomplishment in the sport of golf.

In 2016, UUMNGA was upgraded to a faculty and retained its original name. It offered its first academic program in 2019, a degree in Bachelor of Business Administration (Golf Management) with Honours [BBA (Golf Management) (Hons)].

The curriculum is designed to reflect the golf management element which incorporates the 3u1i mode where students will be attached with industry players for practical training in the final year. They will be exposed to all aspects of golf management under the guidance of the club management.
