UUM ONLINE: Kuala Lumpur - "During this pandemic period we need to do all we can to survive and maintain a positive survival attitude so that after the pandemic ends we can achieve success," said Tan Sri Rafidah Aziz who is the Adjunct Professor at Othman Yeop Abdullah Graduate School of Business (OYAGSB).

She was speaking at the Biz Talk programme entitled, ‘Broadening Malaysia’s Business Horizon: Expanding Business Sustainability via Southeast Asia Community’.  According to her, in the new economic reality, many things must be changed and adapted according to the current situation of the COVID-19 pandemic.

She further reiterated that exploration in the field of information technology at this time will provide Malaysians, especially businessmen to discover and produce innovation. "China, for example, has moved rapidly towards information technology so much so that the people there when they want to buy fish, they would do so with the help of technology that is through purchasing goods via online.

"The question remains, are we ready to use information technology as a medium to continue online business?" said she while addressing important issues on the impact and challenges to expand the sustainability of Malaysian business, especially among the Southeast Asian community.

The former Minister of International Trade and Industry also shared her thoughts on the current issues and business developments in Southeast Asia, as well as providing new ideas and strategies in expanding Malaysian business in the international arena.

She also added that Malaysians need to change and move toward digitization and explore the latest trends in information technology in order to communicate and carry out tasks particular when the world is hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to her, as entrepreneurs the time had come for them to build a network of cooperation with other parties. They also must move toward digitization, strengthening relevant proactive and innovative information technology knowledge. "Expand your view and do not be a frog under the coconut shell.  Get out of the comfort zone and get ready to change," she said, ending the programme organised by OYAGSB recently.

Also present at the event were the Vice- Chancellor, Prof. Dato’ Dr. Ahmad Bashawir Abdul Ghani; Provost of  UUMKL, Prof. Dr. Shahimi Mohtar and Dean of OYAGSB, Prof. Dr. Hassan Abu Bakar.

NEWLY APPOINTED KEY OFFICE BEARERS READY TO HELP UNIVERSITY REALISE SET AGENDA

UUM ONLINE: The newly appointed key office bearers are set to take the immense responsibility of continuing the efforts made by former key office bearers who will step down as Dean and Director from 1 July.

Prof. Dr. Hassan Abu Bakr will succeed the Dean of Othman Yeop Abdullah Graduate School of Business (OYAGSB), Prof. Dr. Shahizan Hassan, while Dr. Shahrina Othman will succeed the Director of the Centre for University-Industry Collaboration (CUIC), Assoc. Prof. Dr. Marlin Marissa Malek.

The presentation of the appointment letters was officiated by the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Dato' Dr. Ahmad Bashawir Abdul Ghani at the Visitors’ Lounge this morning.

According to the Vice-Chancellor, the two newly appointed key office bearers have had extensive experience leading OYAGSB and CUIC.

According to him, there would certainly be a lot of knowledge passed down from the Dean of OYAGSB and the Director of CUIC to Prof. Dr. Hassan and Dr. Shahrina to continue the set agenda of the respective centres of authority.

"It is my fervent hope that Dr. Marlin can continue to dedicate her expertise and service to UUM even though physically she will no longer be at this university but in spirit she will always be here.

He further reiterated that, both Prof. Dr. Shahizan and Dr. Marlin had rendered many sacrifices since serving UUM over 20 years ago beginning as tutors to their final positions as the Dean of OYAGSB and Director of CUIC.

The Vice-Chancellor also expressed his hope that the newly appointed key office bearers taking over the position will be able to take on the challenge with the capabilities that they both possess.

"OYAGSB has been developed to what it is today due to the many sacrifices made by the previous Deans and may OYAGSB be pillar to all business management studies at UUM.

"Likewise, CUIC is expected to continue its partnership with the industry as it is very important not only for the placement of student trainees but also the increase in marketability of UUM graduates," he said.

TERIMA KEPERCAYAAN UNIVERSITI UNTUK PIKUL TANGGUNGJAWAB

UUM ONLINE: Memegang jawatan utama universiti merupakan satu tanggungjawab besar yang harus dipikul bagi memastikan setiap agenda universiti dapat dilaksanakan dengan jayanya, apatah lagi UUM bakal menginjak ke Pelan Strategik Fasa 3 tidak lama lagi.

Mulai 1 Julai ini, dua penjawat utama baharu akan menggalas amanah tersebut dengan menerajui Othman Yeop Abdullah Graduate School of Business (OYAGSB) dan Pusat Kerjasama Universiti-Industri (CUIC).

Timbalan Dekan OYAGSB, Prof. Dr. Hassan Abu Bakar berkata, beliau sudah bersedia dari aspek fizikal dan mental untuk menyahut cabaran Naib Canselor untuk menjadikan OYAGSB sebagai satu-satunya sekolah perniagaan di Malaysia.

Menurutnya, beliau percaya OYAGSB boleh menjadi Top 100 di dunia dalam masa lima tahun akan datang dan beliau akan pastikan hasrat tersebut boleh dilaksanakan.

"Sejak penubuhan OYAGSB lagi tujuannya adalah untuk menjadi sekolah perniagaan utama di Malaysia dan buat masa ini, UUM merupakan antara dua universiti di Malaysia selain Universiti Malaya yang mempunyai akreditasi Double Crown iaitu AACSB dan AMBA.

"Untuk misi seterusnya adalah untuk melengkapkan agenda Triple Crown. Apabila kita berjaya memperolehniya, OYAGSB akan bertapak sebagai sekolah perniagaan utama di Asia Tenggara menjelang 2023, diikuti pada 2025 pula membolehkan OYAGSB diiktiraf sebagai salah satu daripada Top 100 World Business Schools," katanya yang akan menggantikan Prof. Dr. Shahizan Hassan.

Sementara itu, Dekan OYAGSB, Prof. Dr. Shahizan berkata, beliau meletakkan harapan penjawat yang baharu dilantik dapat meneruskan usaha-usaha sedia ada dan Dekan terdahulu.

Menurutnya, mereka telah lakukan yang terbaik untuk meletakkan OYAGSB di landasan yang betul bagi mencapai visi dan misi OYAGSB sebagai Sekolah Perniagaan Terbaik di Malaysia dan Asia Tenggara.

"Saya harap bakal Dekan baharu ini akan ada visi yang sehaluan dengan universiti agar apa yang dihajati akan tercapai.

"Selain itu, beliau juga harus bergerak seiring dengan kemampuan sedia ada dan berusaha untuk memastikan semua staf akademik dan pentadbiran bersama-sama memahami visi OYAGSB untuk memikul tanggungjawab agar misi tersebut tercapai," katanya.

Timbalan Pengarah CUIC, Dr. Shahrina Othman berkata, beliau amat bersyukur kerana diberikan kepercayaan oleh pihak universiti untuk memegang jawatan sebagai Pengarah di CUIC.

Menurutnya, pada masa sama beliau berbesar hati untuk menyahut cabaran itu dan memikirkan langkah seterusnya untuk memajukan CUIC dalam situasi yang dilalui sekarang untuk norma seterusnya.

"Yang penting, adalah hubungan dengan industri yang harus ditingkatkan lagi dan perlu dilihat dari pelbagai aspek, justeru saya tidak sabar untuk berjumpa semula rakan industri agar pelan yang dirancang CUIC dapat dilaksanakan.

"Setiap tahun CUIC telah menetapkan hala tuju tersendiri dan saya akan pastikan ia akan diteruskan serta melakukan sedikit penambahbaikan mengikut situasi Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan Pemulihan (PKPP) ekoran Covid-19," katanya yang akan menggantikan Prof. Madya Dr. Marlin Marissa Malek.

Sementara itu, Dr. Marlin berkata, Dr. Shahrina bukan seorang pengganti, sebaliknya akan meneruskan kerja yang telah dilakukan beliau sebelum ini.

Menurutnya, beliau percaya dengan kebolehan yang terdapat pada Dr. Shahrina untuk mengemudi CUIC pada masa hadapan untuk melaksanakan semua agenda yang telah dirancang.

Katanya, warga CUIC sentiasa bekerja keras, tidak mengambil sesuatu perkara dengan mudah, meletakkan harapan tinggi pada setiap pekerjaan yang dilakukan serta tidak saling bersaing sebaliknya 'menolak' diri untuk menjadi lebih baik.

UUM ONLINE: Bagi memastikan ahli keluarga di kampung halaman terhindar dari penularan wabak Covid-19, warga kampus UUM akur dengan arahan Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan bersyarat (PKPB) yang tidak membenarkan rentas negeri bagi tujuan menyambut Aidilfitri.

Timbalan Dekan di Othman Yeop Abdullah Graduate School of Business (OYAGSB), Lt. Kol. (PA) Prof. Ts. Dr. Norazah Mohd Suki reda dengan ketentuan Ilahi dan terbuka menerima apa jua keputusan yang dibuat kerajaan dalam usaha memutuskan rangkaian wabak Covid-19.

Menurutnya, sambutan raya tahun ini menjadikan rakyat Malaysia lebih berdisiplin dengan mengamalkan Prosedur Operasi Standard (SOP) yang ditetapkan demi kesihatan dan keselamatan bersama.

Katanya, penularan wabak tersebut telah menghalangnya untuk pulang ke kampung halaman beraya bersama keluarga meskipun sedih tetapi dia tetap patuh dengan arahan kerajaan dan universiti.

“Sejak penularan Covid-19, banyak norma baharu yang perlu diikuti seperti sentiasa memakai pelitup muka dan menggunakan ‘hand sanitizer’, malah kini saya juga membeli kuih raya melalui online sahaja kerana rakyat di negara ini dinasihatkan untuk duduk di rumah dan kurangkan aktiviti menziarahi pada hari raya.

“Hanya raya pertama sahaja dibenarkan untuk mengunjungi keluarga terdekat, namun masih perlu amalkan penjarakkan sosial yang dicadangkan oleh kerajaan seperti mengelakkan perhimpunan beramai-ramai dan tiada sesi bersalaman dengan ahli keluarga,” katanya yang juga Pegawai Bersekutu Angkatan Pertahanan Awam Malaysia (APM).

Prof. Ts. Dr. Norazah berkata, hari raya tidak disambut sepi walaupun tidak bersama keluarga tercinta kerana teknologi kini telah menghubungan semua orang hanya di hujung jari sahaja dengan adanya aplikasi WhatsApp, Webex atau Zoom yang membolehkan setiap orang berkomunikasi.

Di kesempatan ini, beliau sekeluarga mengucapkan Salam Aidilfitri, Maaf Zahir dan Batin kepada seluruh warga UUM.

Sementara itu, pelajar Sarjana Muda Komunikasi, Nurul Sahadar Che Nuh mengakui sambutan raya tahun ini agak berbeza dalam suasana norma baharu yang harus dipatuhi.

Berasal dari Kelantan, Nurul Sahadar berkata, Aidilfitri di era PKP banyak mengajarnya erti sebenar menyambut hari raya iaitu dengan lebih kesyukuran, rendah diri dan membesarkan Allah dengan harapan amalan di sepanjang Ramadan akan diterima-Nya.

INFORMATION TO ALL POSTGRADUATE STUDENTS: TEACHING AND LEARNING ACTIVITIES FOR TRIMESTER 193 IN LIGHT OF THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC AND THE MOVEMOENT CONTROL ORDER (MCO)

UNIVERSITI UTARA MALAYSIA: LEARNING MUSTN'T STOP WITH COVID-19

UNIVERSITI UTARA MALAYSIA: LEARNING MUSTN'T STOP WITH COVID-19

Universiti Utara Malaysia Learning mustnt stop with Covid 19

The Covid-19 pandemic has pushed higher education institutions online to ensure that effective learning continues. While technology can facilitate seamless migration of face-to-face learning to a virtual platform, accessibility to quality digital content is crucial, especially during the Movement Control Order (MCO). As the workplace is rapidly expanding beyond the lecture halls, online classroom delivery will become a new norm.

Like anywhere else in the world, students at Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM) were initially forced to leave the campus and go home to follow the Malaysian directive of the movement control order (MCO) to curb the spread of the virus. As the students were not allowed to come back to the campus and face-to-face classes could not resume, as usual, an alternative to traditional teaching and learning had to be found. Fortunately, the University has implemented blended learning education in which students learn via electronic and online media as well as traditional face-to-face teaching for the last few years. Capitalizing on the existing learning management system (LMS), the transition to 100% blended and online has been rather smooth.

However, one key challenge with the full online transition is the access to Internet connection by students, especially those who live in remote locations where basic Internet infrastructures are not as good as those found in urban and suburban areas. This particularly true especially for the undergraduate students, and is not much an issue for OYAGSB students as they are mostly working adults. Prior to Covid-19, students mostly stayed on the campus or if they live nearby the campus, with their parents. In these situations, they tended to have an excellent access to Internet facilities. While technology can facilitate seamless migration of face-to-face learning to a virtual platform, accessibility to quality digital content is crucial, especially during the Movement Control Order (MCO). Thus, while faculty members were ready to move to online teaching, students might not necessarily be so, despite the various teaching and learning support provided by the University to facilitate online delivery.

Despite the technological challenges, online teaching and learning have to continue. Some faculty members indicate that they started to convert 100% of their traditional delivery to a fully online content since there is no definite date when the MCO will end. However, from the feedback gathered, online learning is significantly easier for technical subjects than for those that require creativity.  Thus, in the time of crisis, such as the Covid-19 pandemic, a variety of support should be continuously provided. One area that is worth mentioning is human tutoring, which can be facilitated through online and digital means that are equally accessible to everyone. Human tutoring, i.e., having faculty members who motivate, inspire, and support advancing independent thinking, is still indispensable.

The situation the world is facing now is somewhat unprecedented. It has forced higher learning institutions to think out of the box of how to deliver their academic responsibility. The Covid-19 pandemic has pushed higher education institutions online to ensure that effective learning continues. As the workplace is rapidly expanding beyond the lecture halls, online classroom delivery will become a new norm. More importantly, we hope that for Generation Z, Alpha, and the generations to come, the experiences of isolation and remote learning away from their peers, teachers, and classrooms will serve as a cautious reminder of the importance of the need for face-to-face and social interaction.

TUGAS AKADEMIK TIDAK HALANG BANTU KEKANG COVID 19

UUM ONLINE: Di saat frontliners negara berjuang untuk memutuskan rantaian Covid-19, UUM juga tidak duduk diam apabila Timbalan Dekan di Othman Yeop Abdullah Graduate School of Business (OYAGSB), Lt. Kol. (PA) Prof. Ts. Dr. Norazah Mohd Suki yang merupakan Pegawai Bersekutu Angkatan Pertahanan Awam Malaysia (APM) turut bersama-sama membantu dalam usaha tersebut.

Prof. Ts. Dr. Norazah yang merupakan Timbalan Dekan (Akademik dan Antarabangsa) OYAGSB berkata, beliau berbesar hati apabila dipanggil bertugas di Home Surveillance Center (HSC) Negeri Kedah bersama Sekretariat Pengurusan Bencana Negeri APM Negeri Kedah di Institut Aminuddin Baki Cawangan Utara, Jitra.

“Saya menerima tanggungjawab dan kepercayaan yang diberikan ini dan akan melaksanakan tugas yang diamanahkan dengan sebaik mungkin.

“Usaha untuk mengekang penularan wabak di Negeri Kedah membabitkan individu yang positif Covid-19 dijalankan di Hospital Sultanah Bahiyah, Alor Setar, manakala individu negatif atau dikenali sebagai 'person under surveillance' (PUS) ditempatkan di beberapa stesen kuarantin Negeri Kedah,” katanya yang turut dibantu oleh pensyarah SCIMPA, Prof. Madya Ts. Dr. Norbayah Mohd Suki.

Beliau berkata, tugasnya adalah menyelaraskan pengurusan agensi terlibat di Stesen Kuarantin Institut Aminuddin Baki Cawangan Utara Jitra dalam tempoh kuat kuasa Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan (PKP).

Menurutnya, proses pengurusan individu yang dikuarantin mengikut Prosedur Operasi Standard (SOP) yang dikeluarkan Majlis Keselamatan Negara (MKN) dan Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia (KKM).

“Selepas pendaftaran rekod oleh petugas KKM yang berpakaian pakaian perlindungan peribadi (PPE), PUS dilengkapkan dengan Welcome Kit yang disediakan oleh Jabatan Kebajikan Malaysia (JKM) dan hanya seorang PUS sahaja bagi setiap bilik di stesen kuarantin tersebut dan tidak berkongsi.

“Petugas APM yang berpakaian PPE akan menghantar makanan yang diuruskan oleh JKM di hadapan bilik PUS tiga kali sehari mengikut jadual. Mereka akan mengetuk pintu PUS sebagai tanda makanan telah pun sampai. Lima minit selepas itu, baru PUS akan mengambilnya,” katanya.

Prof. Ts. Dr. Norazah berkata, sepanjang tempoh tersebut, PUS akan mendapat dua set pakaian hospital untuk digunakan setiap hari.

Menurutnya, pakaian hospital harian ini serta bekas makanan yang dianggap sebagai sisa klinikal perlu diletakkan dalam plastik kuning yang disediakan dan akan dikutip oleh petugas klinikal keesokan harinya bagi memastikan kebersihan PUS sentiasa dijaga..

“PKP 3 yang berkuatkuasa dari 15 hingga 28 April ini merupakan tempoh penting untuk menamatkan penularan wabak Covid-19 di Malaysia.

OYAGSB STUDENTS MENTOR ASNAF ENTREPRENUER

OYAGSB STUDENTS MENTOR ASNAF ENTREPRENUER

UUM ONLINE: Setting up businesses can be a daunting task.  It is especially so for those who are in need of funding even if it is just to start a small business. While it is important to obtain funding, support and encouragement are also key features for the establishment of small businesses especially for entrepreneurs in rural areas with a small target group of customers.

In order to have a better understanding of the challenges faced by small entrepreneurs, five OYAGSB students decided to spend time with a micro-business owner, Mdm. Mazliana on March 7.  As part of their corporate social responsibility towards the community, these students shared key aspects of entrepreneurship, which include the strategies of growing and maintaining a business.

Throughout their time with Mdm. Mazliana, they also shared various entrepreneurial insights. Amongst them were ideas on how to operate an effective micro business for her daily business operation and details of the types of assistance made available for small  businesses by the Malaysian government through the related ministries and agencies. Moreover, the team also demonstrated the ways of doing proper bookkeeping, steps to register the business with the Companies Commission of Malaysia (SSM) as well as ideas on how to grow the business to a bigger scale e.g. catering service to corporate offices and online presence.

One of the students who took part in this project is also an officer at Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL), urged Mdm. Mazliana to get herself the typhoid injection.  “As a food-service provider, you must get your typhoid shot as it is compulsory for all food-service providers,” said Mr. Mohd. Izeham Abd Rhani.

With the current outbreak of the deadly coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Malaysian government has since issued the Movement Control Order (MCO).  As such, the situation will surely hit her business hard, like so many others. The team members expressed hopes that Mdm. Mazliana will apply all the dos and don’ts they shared with her to help her cope with the current situation in order to keep her business running in healthy and safe condition.

For the record, Mdm. Mazliana runs a business of selling nasi lemak. Her stall is located near Institut Kemahiran Tinggi Belia Negara (IKTBN) in Dusun Tua, Hulu Langat, Selangor. This corporate social responsibility or CSR project is part of the assignment student of the Business Ethics, Corporate Social Responsibility, and Sustainability course in the Master of Business Administration (MBA) Programme by coursework need to complete. Besides Mr. Mohd. Izeham Abd Rhani, Mdm. Norazliana Aziz, Mr. Bernard Chew Ming Zhao, Mr. Mohd Syarol Azuan Zakaria, and Mdm. Shasikala Vadivalu were also involved in this community-based project.

The Dean of OYAGSB, Prof. Dr. Shahizan Hassan said the ABEM 3.0 programme which was funded by the Ministry of Education Malaysia (MoE) became the basis for theory and practice.

According to him, the programme would bring about significant impact on the development of entrepreneurship education at Institutions of Higher Education (IHE) by increasing the competency of the teaching staff. The programme would help participants have clear understanding of the latest business management and entrepreneurship concepts.

“This programme will also enhance the skills of these entrepreneurship educators to carry out research in line with MoE's aspiration of producing action-based research.

"The results of the case study can also be an effective teaching and learning tool for IHEs, while helping the Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs) develop their business through case studies," he said at the closing ceremony of the ABEM Convention 3.0.

A total of 13 case studies were presented during the ABEM Convention 3.0, amongst them included a case study by UUM representatives namely Assoc.

During the programme participants were exposed to key elements of entrepreneurship and business such as entrepreneurship management, digital retail business, strategic marketing management, strategic financial management and business case studies.

Meanwhile, the second phase dealt with sustainable business development.

UUM ONLINE: Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM) terus menjadi pilihan pegawai berkerjaya untuk melanjutkan pengajian ke peringkat tinggi, tidak terkecuali staf dari Angkatan Koperasi Kebangsaan Malaysia Berhad (ANGKASA) yang telah mendaftar sebagai pelajar baharu bagi Program Ijazah Sarjana Pentadbiran Perniagaan (MBA) di bawah kendalian Othman Yeop Abdullah Graduate School of Business (OYAGSB).

Seramai 17 pegawai dari pelbagai unit di bawah ANGKASA telah dibiayai sepenuhnya oleh ANGKASA dan menjadi kumpulan ketiga selepas 40 pegawai ANGKASA berjaya menamatkan pengajian dengan jayanya dalam dua kumpulan sebelum ini pada 2016 dan 2019.

Naib Presiden ANGKASA, Prof. Madya Dr. Abdul Rahman Abdul Razak Shaik berkata, kursus yang ditawarkan oleh OYAGSB telah menarik minat ANGKASA untuk menghantar pegawai melanjutkan pengajian di UUM kerana ia dapat memberi tambah nilai kepada semua pegawai yang terlibat.

Menurutnya, program ini dilihat mampu memberi impak yang sangat positif dalam meningkatkan kerjaya semua pegawai dan mampu memberi inovasi dan penambahbaikan kepada output organisasi.

“Peluang seperti ini tidak akan datang bergolek dan pegawai terlibat perlu menghargai sebaiknya kerana anda semua dapat menimba ilmu di tempat yang sama anda bekerja dengan pembiayaan penuh oleh syarikat.

“Saya juga berharap kerjasama ini dapat diteruskan untuk kumpulan seterusnya dan membuka peluang kepada lebih ramai pegawai bukan sahaja dalam kalangan staf ANGKASA tetapi juga organisasi setempat agar dapat memperolehi ijazah sarjana sambil bekerja,” katanya pada Majlis Penyerahan Surat Tawaran Pengajian, baru-baru ini.

Sementara itu, Dekan OYAGSB, Prof. Dr. Shahizan Hassan mengucapkan tahniah dan syabas kepada semua pelajar baharu yang sanggup menyahut cabaran demi menggenggam segulung ijazah walaupun sibuk dengan kerja dan keluarga masing-masing.

“Perjalanan ini sudah tentunya bukan mudah, namun ianya sangat berbaloi,” katanya.

Program bagi kumpulan ini akan lebih menarik dengan pelaksanaan pembelajaran secara atas talian (online learning) menggunakan sistem WEBEX yang telah dirasmikan oleh Timbalan Naib Canselor (Akademik dan Antarabangsa), Prof. Dr. Yusnidah Ibrahim pada Januari lalu.

Sistem ini memberi peluang kepada semua pelajar untuk mengikuti sesi pengajaran secara maya tanpa perlu berada secara fizikal di dalam kelas.
