From 21-25 May, seven Malaysian institutes of higher learning (IHLs) have signed on to participate in the MyUniAlliance-SAP programme. The new IHLs are Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM), Universiti Tenaga Nasional (UNITEN), Universiti Kuala Lumpur (UniKL), Nilai University College (NUC), Universiti Teknikal Malaysia Melaka (UTeM), Tunku Abdul Rahman College (TARC) and Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP). Together with the six pioneer IHLs that have been part of the MyUniAlliance-SAP programme since it began in October 2011, and including Monash University Sunway Malaysia and Swinburne University Sarawak that have taught SAP skills since before the introduction of MyUniAlliance-SAP, there are now fifteen Malaysian IHLs that offer SAP training as part of their academic curriculum.
SAP Malaysia Managing Director Serene Sia said, “SAP was the first global technology partner to answer the Prime Minister’s call to join the MyUniAlliance programme and to integrate SAP training into the curricula at Malaysian IHLs. Since October last year, 350 tertiary students have completed SAP training through MyUniAlliance-SAP, and we look forward to a further 500 students completing the programme by the end of this year. ”
