Be part of the KDU’s best-trained Business leaders

Industrial visits and informative talks by industry professionals are part of the activities planned for our students to further expose them to the actual business world. The recent Carnival sales held in the campus as part of the Entrepreneurship coursework boosted students’ experiential learning process.
Since 1992, KDU College Penang’s (KDU Penang) Business Department has grown by leaps and bounds with its quality programmes that are industry-relevant, coupled with its team of dedicated and highly qualified lecturers and industry-standard facilities. The Business Department is known for its business savvy students who excel in the industry after graduation. With its long history and experience in offering the ideal environment in business education, KDU Penang continues to enjoy its premier status as a business education provider in the Northern region.

The KDU Penang’s Business Department has garnered much prestige when a partnership was formed with the famous Keele University in the United Kingdom (UK) for its best-ranked 3+0 dual-major Keele Bachelors programme in Business Management.

Highly popular in the UK, the Keele Business programme is equally sought after by both local and international students in Malaysia. Understanding the needs of the present professional business world, KDU Penang delivers good-quality, high-value education by offering this prestigious degree in the KDU Penang campus.

The dual honours degrees programmes include Keele University (3+0) B.A. (Hons) Business Management and Finance, Keele University (3+0) B.A. (Hons) Business Management and Human Resource Management and Keele University (3+0) B.A. (Hons) Business Management and Marketing. The challenging Keele syllabi emphasise a high degree of critical and analytical thinking to build up students’ ability in solving multi-disciplinary problems, all of which are valuable skills in the working world.

Apart from the degree programmes, KDU Penang offers globally accepted quality Diploma in Business which equips students with the academic knowledge and skills that allows them to continue with their degree in Business-related studies either locally or internationally. With the worldwide articulation acceptance as a plus point, students can progress to Year 2 of degree studies offered by established universities in Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. Students with excellent academic standings may proceed to the final year of degree studies at certain universities in United Kingdom.

The KDU Business programmes have gone through professional evaluation and are broadly recognised by professional bodies such as MQA (Malaysian Qualifications Agency), SIRIM Berhad (formally known as Standards and Industrial Research Institute of Malaysia) and CIMA (Chartered Institute of Management Accountants), IPAA (Institute of Public Accountants of Australia) and MAICSA (Chartered Secretaries Malaysia). Furthermore, the IPAA has accredited the KDU Business diploma programme so that KDU Penang’s Business diploma graduates are eligible for the IPAA membership.

KDU Penang is dedicated to providing a superior learning experience to ensure that its graduates are well-prepared for the industry’s needs and expectations. Various hands-on projects, experiential knowledge enhancement trips as well as sharing sessions by prominent industry leaders have been incorporated into its tailored syllabus to expose and familiarise students with the actual working environment.

KDU Penang is also proud to be the only private Business school in the Northern region to provide distinct learning facilities such as its very own Business lounge where students can interact and practise their skills in preparation for the real business environment. With the support of an experienced and committed teaching team, coupled with well-equipped modern facilities, the KDU Business Department is ever primed to produce industry-ready business experts. The numerous awards won in competitions organised by the Multimedia Development Corporation (MDEC) are testaments to the quality education at KDU Penang.
