    STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

    HOW I LEARNED BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF MALAYA

    It is a very famous university for the people from where I come from. I have taken the visiting tour of the campus and got to know a little bit about the university and the courses. Thus I readily filled the application form and went ahead with the further processes.


    Course Curriculum - 

    The course at the University of Malaya is actually great. The course benefited me to gain a practical and conceptual understanding of accounting methods and techniques. It helped me to apply concepts, principles, and techniques in related accounting disciplines while I was working on my projects. I feel the course has been framed to get a good placement opportunity.
