Hello Cindy,

1. In the finance/business industry’s point of view, either of these choices are good, as the business world will always need accountants, marketers and managers to ensure that the economy stays stable.

1. There is no harm in joining the CFA, as it gives you extra recognition when you are applying for jobs in the future.

However, all in all, the final decision in making these choices depend on your own interest and passion in the field. If you really want marketing, then you should go for it as it is better for you if you are doing something you really love.

Hope this helps. We wish you all the best :)

Hi Farahin,
You can find the entry requirements for a Foundation in Economics and Management Science at IIUM here: https://online.mohe.gov.my/upu/epanduan/syarat/vMenuSyarat.php?jenprog=spm&pagefunc=syaratByIPTA&carian1=Y&carian2=A&carian3=A1

Do note that Foundation programmes are a little risky if you're unsure of your pathway to degree. You should first find out if the university you're applying to offers a degree in the course you want, and then backtrack to the foundation they offer at IIUM. So this foundation at IIUM only allows you to choose Bachelor programmes such as economics, business administration, accounting, and islamic finance only. If these bachelor programmes are what you're looking for, then this Foundation is the right one for you. Besides that, students are also not allowed to switch universities after they have completed their foundation programmes at IIUM. They are only allowed to study the degree programmes as stated and at the same university. Hope this clarifies your doubt. Feel free to ask if you have any more queries =)
