ANOTHER major milestone in Malaysian higher education took place when The Most Honourable Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Mohammad Najib Tun Abdul Razak, launched the National Higher Education Blueprint 2015-2025 at the Royale Chulan Hotel Kuala Lumpur on 7th April 2015.
This important event was also attended by the Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Education II, Cabinet Ministers, top officials of Ministry of Education, Vice Chancellors / CEOs of institutions of higher learning, Chairmen and CEOs of companies, and students from universities, colleges and schools. A crowd estimated at 2,500 people witnessed the launching of the blueprint.
The goal of the National Higher Education Blueprint 2015-2025 is to create morally sound graduates who are well-rounded and balanced individuals – to have a balance between AKHLAQ and ILMU, to be a morally sound graduate.
There are 10 Shifts (Lonjakan) laid out in the Blueprint for transforming our higher education system.
Shift 1 aims to develop graduates who are Holistic, Entrepreneurial, and Balanced – the very goals of Human Governance espoused by Putra Business School (PBS). The objective is to improve graduates’ quality across intellectual, spiritual, emotional and physical dimensions, to enable them to thrive in today’s complex global economy and contribute to the betterment of society.
As a designated “Top Business School” and formed by a Charter from the Malaysian Cabinet in 2007 (‘Jemaah Menteri’), we at Putra Business School (PBS) are humbled that our approach of Human Governance, embodied in our Constitution has been found fit by our Government to be the guiding light for others as well.
We can now truly claim that Putra Business School (PBS) is Home to Human Governance.
