Visit to Genting Highlands

12 March 2023 – 24 Putra Business School (PBS) students went on an industry visit organised by the PUTRA Student Association (PSA) to Genting Highlands, Malaysia. The trip was led by the dedicated PSA Advisor, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Ida Md. Yasin and involved MBA and PhD local and international students.

The main checkpoint of the visit was the IBN Highlands City, where they learned about the “Differentiation of Property Investment between KL City Centre and Genting Highlands” delivered by Mr. Kevin Chua, the Sales Manager of IBN Corp Malaysia. He received positive feedback on his informative presentation and engaging presentation style.

Afterwards, students also enjoyed riding the Awana Skyway Cable Car and toured the Genting Highlands Premium Outlet and Genting SkyWorlds Theme Park. Students highly enjoyed the opportunity to learn, network and strengthen their bond with one another. It was a delightful and memorable experience for everyone on the trip.

Here are some feedback from students on the industry visit:

1. “It was a brilliant visit organised by the PSA on the insights on the property market, especially post-COVID-19. Having met and been briefed by an industry leader truly brings a value-added perspective that I can link back to what I have learned during my MBA journey.” – Mr. Islah Muhaimin, MBA (Finance)

2. “The trip to IBN is a good experience. We learn more about market property in Highland Area and the difference with market property in Central City Area so we have more knowledge if we want to enter the market property industry.” – Ms. Michelle Layanto, MBA (Human Potential Management)

3. “I found the Industry visit from several PBS group mates. I am excited to join the 2023 property market outlook. During the event, I found that the property market does not only depends on the house owner or investor but is also impacted by the government OPR rate policy and the project environmental design.” – Mr. Lum Yew Hong, MBA (Corporate Governance)

4. “The visit to IBN Genting Highlands was indeed insightful. The information I got during the talk was remarkable. I was able to learn about the property and investment outlook in the area and network outside the classroom environment.

Thank you PBS and PSA for organising this trip.” – Siti Nadhrah Abdul Latip Nadhrah Alba, PhD (Management)
