The experience has broadened my horizon

I completed my undergraduate degree with a double major in Management and Marketing from Curtin Business School, one of the AACSB accredited courses.

I chose to study in Curtin Sarawak because the campus stood out above the rest. I had offers from other universities, but Curtin University has a great reputation internationally and had the specific course I wanted to do.

I like the hands-on approach of the courses at Curtin because it has taken my learning beyond theory. I have learnt to apply my knowledge through experiences like giving presentations, working in teams, and active involvement in our tutorials. I feel better prepared to get into the workforce because of it.

I also like that our lecturers use real-life examples in their teaching and the fact that lectures are held twice at different times. Most of the lecturers create an environment of enthusiasm for learning, appreciation for growing, and room for making mistakes along the way. I am grateful to have you as a guide, leading by example.

The IT infra-structure is good and the IT staff are really helpful. Blackboard [an interactive platform with links to course notes, student contacts, discussion forums, etc.] works really well. Not only that, I think that the Faculty invests a lot in students; they really look after us. I am proud to have the opportunity to attend the classes in Distributed Learning Room, it allows us to enjoy the classes together with Bentley main campus.

The experience has broadened my horizon and really changed my view about many things.

My advice to prospective students is that, when you come to the Curtin Malaysia, don’t be afraid to venture out and join clubs and societies. You will experience living amongst people from many nationalities and make lifelong friends. Coming here was the best decision I have made.
