Malaysian power executives supercharge their studies at MBS

2/09/2015

Executives from Malaysia’s biggest power company arrived at Melbourne Business School in August as part of a unique MBA, customised with MBS’s help, that gives them international exposure and networking opportunities by studying alongside executives from major Australian-based companies.
 
 

With ambitions to expand internationally, Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) asked MBS to incorporate four units from our MBA program and one unit from our suite of executive education open programs into their executive MBA course, which they began at Malaysia’s Universiti Tenaga Nasional (UNITEN).

Alongside their Australian-based classmates, the 25 TNB senior staff members will spend six weeks studying Global Business Economics, Mergers and Acquisitions and other MBA units, as well as our Futures Thinking and Strategy open program.

The MBA program includes dinners with senior-level speakers from local companies to enrich the experience for our TNB guests.

Guy Saunders, MBS Associate Dean, Executive Education, said MBS worked closely with TNB and UNITEN to craft a program that addressed TNB’s executive development needs, especially the need for international networking and business skills.

“These skills are becoming increasingly important for companies in the region as ASEAN develops into a single market,” he said. “We are very proud that TNB chose MBS to help it meet its strategic and talent development goals.”
