Preview to Perdana University Master of International Trade Programme
It gives us great pleasure to introduce to you the Master of International Trade (MIT) awarded by Perdana University - a pioneering programme that will shape the study of International Trade in the region. The MIT is offered in collaboration with the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) and Zurich University of Applied Science School of Management and Law (ZHAW) with the support of the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI), Malaysia. Given the nature of the field of study, the programme has been structured to benefit both fresh graduates and professionals in the field.
The MIT is a comprehensive 12-module programme that can be completed in 15 months with a maximum candidature of 4 years. Students can also choose to do it in modular form and obtain a certificate at the attendance of each module. With the collaboration of UNCTAD and ZHAW, a fly-in faculty of experts will teach the programme that commences in 2015.
As part of the launch of the programme, we are offering the following two activities:
- Preview of Programme on 5th January 2015, 8.30am – 1.00pm at MITI by Dr Hassan Qaqaya from UNCTAD and Professor Dato’ Dr Sothi Rachagan from Perdana University. They will offer insights on the programme and respond to questions on the programme and its delivery. A complete itinerary for the preview that also features a keynote address by Professor Dr Simon Evenett from St Gallen University, Switzerland, who will teach the first module, is attached for your information.
- Special preview modules – To offer a feel of how the modules will be conducted, the first two modules are being offered at an introductory fee.
