The UiTM’s Faculty of Accountancy Networking Trip to the United Kingdom finally came to an end. Prof. Datin Dr Suzana Sulaiman (Deputy Vice Chancellor – Academic & International) and Assoc. Prof Dr Khairul Ayuni Mohd Kharuddin (person-in-charge) finally concluded their networking trip with a visit to the University of Portsmouth (UoP). The delegates received a very warm welcome from the UoP’s top management.
They had a fruitful discussion with the team from Portsmouth Business School and it was a mutual interest that a signing of an MOU between both parties should be materialised very soon. The top management from the UoP will also reciprocate UiTM’s visit before the new year 2023. Despite the tight schedule, sleepless nights, and heavy traveling to 8 different destinations (Malaysian Embassy, ACCA UK, CIMA UK, Coventry University, Aston University, De Montfort University, Loughborough University, and the University of Portsmouth), all in all, the UK networking trip was indeed a successful effort in improving UiTM’s Faculty of Accountancy’s international visibility, towards achieving UiTM’s aim to become a Globally Renowned University by 2025.
We look ahead to the progression of these partnerships with UK professional accountancy bodies and UK universities, and the signing of an MOU between us.
