Entrepreneurship education in varsities to be improved
KOTA BARU: Entrepreneurship education in university will be improved with new elements to produce students with high entrepreneurial traits, says Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin.
The elements include developing positive personal attitude and entrepreneurial skills, increasing self employment awareness and making entrepreneurship the career of choice.
Other elements are using the practical method in which students are involved in projects outside the classroom, provide business foundation skills for self employment and how to start and develop business.
"We must develop students into entrepreneurs with innovation and creativity to meet the needs of employers, increase marketability and competitiveness," he said after launching an entrepreneurship programme of Universiti Malaysia Kelantan (UMK), here today.
Also present were UMK chairman, Tan Sri Hamad Kama Piah Che Othman and UMK Vice-Chancellor, Prof Dr Raduan Che Rose.
UMK's Global Entrepreneurship Research and Innovation Centre will conduct research, development, commercialisation of innovation and transfer of technology.
Khaled also said matriculation students with CGPA of 3.0 who failed to get university places would get them provided they accept the courses given after appeal. -- BERNAMA
