Dean's Message


Dean Wan Khairuzzaman Wan IsmailLike other organizations, business schools have to continuously innovate and implement the right strategy to remain relevant as the main source of business education. Business schools need to be more global in outlook and revisit their ability to offer innovative responses to changes in the market. It was against this background that UTM International Business School is committed to the development of innovative and entrepreneurial leaders for the global market, who contribute to the advancement of knowledge, and contribute to the societal wealth and well-being.

Founded in 1997, UTM IBS has been producing graduates with innovative and entrepreneurial skills for a wide range of organizational, industry and cultural contexts. In doing so, the School maintains faculty and staff from diverse qualification and culture. Students carry out projects that are industry oriented, relevant to market needs and reflective on demands of high-quality education. Likewise, faculty’s work is reflective of IBS mission statement through the industry driven and globally-oriented projects. In addition, the school’s curriculum contains core courses representing the main disciplines in business and management which cover the key areas essential in the AACSB standards.

Our Alumni helps develop our curriculum by sitting in the Curriculum Development Committee. At the same time, they assist in research projects to enable students to apply theories and concepts into the real world context. Further strengthening our position, the school’s location at the heart of modern Kuala Lumpur, the golden triangle of business and commercial centres of Malaysia, offers us access to many large corporations and allows us to have strategic collaborations with the business community.

It is our core belief that we have the responsibility to produce adaptive problem solvers who have the necessary skills to address the socio-economic needs of a changing society and become future business leaders. I invite you for an enriching learning experience at UTM International Business School, the absolute place for your business education.
