INTI Offers a Solid Foundation to Launch Business Careers

May 24, 2011

Management guru Peter Drucker once said that every successful business was a result of someone’s courageous decision. In today’s highly competitive business environment, individuals who dare to be different, and who are independent and adaptable, will set themselves apart from the crowd.


The qualities mentioned above are among those regularly sought by employers when they look for new talent. This is where the advantages of an INTI qualification come in, in particular for those with a business qualification, as students are also trained to develop soft skills that lead to strong leadership ability, confidence and the ability to analyse and strategise, in addition to being independent, decisive and resourceful.

Students of INTI’s Diploma in Business Administration programme are groomed to take on leadership roles in the business world.

The business courses offered at INTI in Sabah and Sarawak include the Diploma in Business Administration. The programme provides an excellent all-round business education for a good understanding of accounting, finance, marketing, management, economics and human resources. Each subject is designed to groom graduates to assume leadership positions in a wide array of businesses. A solid foundation in business administration will prepare graduates for a challenging career in business or for degree studies at INTI or abroad.


“The popularity of the Business and other courses at INTI is based on the strong emphasis on industry related needs,” said Mr Graham Doxey, CEO of Laureate Malaysia and Deputy CEO of INTI. “We offer career-focused programmes that are designed to produce graduates who are highly employable and sought after in business and other fields.”


INTI has in place a unique initiative called Enrolment to Employment (E2E) – a synergy with blue-chip companies including AIA, Deloitte, Digi and Ricoh, among others, aimed at increasing the employability of every INTI graduate. E2E addresses critical market needs by tailoring courses together with the industry, which means that the curriculum and coursework activities at INTI are designed to be in tandem with the expectations of the industry, as well as being relevant to the market’s needs.


Among the many E2E initiatives to help students understand the complexities of the working world and have a pulse on the needs of employers is the Business Leadership Series, which has seen captains of industry such as Ananth Lazarus, Managing Director of Microsoft Malaysia; Lim Eng Weng, Managing Director of Ricoh (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd; Tengku Dato’ Sri Azmil Zahruddin, Managing Director and CEO of Malaysia Airlines; and Dato’ Hj Ameer Ali, Managing Director of Mydin Mohamed Holdings Bhd speaking to students of INTI on the latest trends and developments in business and career opportunities on a global scale. By giving students access to the region’s top minds and facilitating communication in an open manner with these thought leaders, INTI sets its students ahead of their peers.


INTI continuously refines its academic programmes with the objective of producing graduates who are capable of thriving in the global environment. It is a part of Laureate International Universities – the world’s largest private education network. Students will not only benefit from INTI’s 25 years of experience and strong track-record as a leading tertiary education provider, but also gain from the global synergy and resources that Laureate provides. These include the Semester Abroad Programme (SAP) which allows INTI students to study for a full semester at a Laureate institution of their choice while paying local fees.
