Victoria University Business & MBA Programme rss

The Victoria University-Sunway Programme is the quintessential Australian education experience right at home here in Malaysia. Students have the option to complete the entire degree in Malaysia (‘3+0’ programme) or opt for the ‘1+2’ programme arrangement.

Victoria University (VU) is based in Melbourne, Australia, and is a leader in industry-based learning experience. The VU Bachelor of Business curriculum focuses on developing both the students’ personal attributes and professional skills giving them an edge needed in the business community. The VU-Sunway curriculum is identical to the one in Melbourne with the syllabi, assignments, tests and final examinations all set by the Australian campus.

A Business Learning Experience Project is incorporated into the programme and supplemented by internships to foster learning in the workplace. Sunway facilitates the placement of second and third year students into internship programmes with the ‘Big 4’ accounting firms and other corporations. This programme encourages active participation in university life through its own clubs (VU Business Club, Sunway CPA Australia Student Charter) and newsletter, VU Voices.

Under the VU programme, Sunway University College offers a range of eight Bachelor of Business degrees either as single or double majors: Accounting, Banking and Finance, Financial Risk Management, International Trade, Marketing; and a combination of Accounting/Banking and Finance, Financial Risk Management/Banking and Finance, Marketing/International Trade.

After their first year, students can also opt to transfer to other collaborating universities in Australia (University of Melbourne, University of Western Australia) and New Zealand (Victoria University of Wellington) upon meeting all specific conditions.
