An institution that needs no introduction is Universiti Putra Malaysia, better known as UPM. One of the fabled big 5 public universities in Malaysia, UPM has gone from strength to strength in recent years, shooting up multiple university rankings and further cementing its already burgeoning reputation.

Catering for business students who want to take that next step, Universiti Putra Malaysia’s business programmes have picked up a multitude of accreditations from different governmental bodies and private entities as well. One of these accreditations comes from AACSB, or Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. While many of you may not have heard of this accreditation, this is all you need to know about - Less than 5% of the world’s business schools have such an accreditation, and Universiti Putra Malaysia’s Business School is the only one in Malaysia with it, and one of only 6 in the region. Furthermore, UPM’s Business School also offers financial aid to assist students who may be facing financial constraints.
Curtin University Sarawak, Taylor’s University and Universiti Putra Malaysia (Putra Business School) are some of the top universities for business studies in Malaysia, choosing either of the trio would see students provided with a quality education. With such comprehensive courses on offer, it is, then, up to the students themselves to put in the time and effort, because the end results will be worth it.
