Studying overseas shouldn't always have to be painfully taxing on our finances. If you wish to complete your MBA and also experience life abroad without burning a hole in your wallet, a twinning MBA programme is your solution. While the existence of twinning programmes has been known on for a good while, its popularity has only recently spiked as the number of students who seek an overseas education are on the rise.
Many private universities collaborate with overseas university to provide twinning programs in their courses
Private universities and colleges in Malaysia collaborate with prominent foreign universities from countries such as Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States to offer unique twinning programmes. In the case of MBAs, the norm is observed to be 2+1 or completing your final semester in a foreign country. Upon graduation of the course, your MBA qualification will be awarded by the overseas partner's university.
Twinning programmes give you the opportunity to study overseas without having to spend so much
Twinning programmes give you an internationally recognised certification coupled with a multi-cultural experience at considerably lower costs. Take this scenario for instance; you enrol for a 2-year twinning programme in Malaysia, complete your first year in Malaysia and the subsequent year in Australia. You would potentially save up to AUD20,000!
More importantly, studying abroad boosts your employability. A recent study reveals that young people who study or train abroad not only gain knowledge in specific disciplines, but also strengthen key skills highly valued by employers.
"Internationally mobile students are half as likely to experience long-term unemployment compared with those who have not studied or trained abroad and that, five years after graduation, their unemployment rate is 23% lower." - ICEF Monitor, 2014
