The UNIRAZAK Graduate School of Business educates, challenges, inspires, mentors, and develops students in their pursuit of high-quality business education through interactive and engaging learning experiences for their professional and career advancement. The history of the development of the Graduate School of Business goes beyond twenty years when it was known as the Centre for Graduate Studies. In 1998 the Centre for Graduate Studies was established to coordinate postgraduate studies and research activities at Universiti Tun Abdul Razak. In 2008 under the university’s continuous improvement initiatives it was restructured and named as the Graduate School of Business (GSB). This is to realise the university’s aspiration to be a centre that provides high-quality education and training to managerial leaders with internationally acclaimed recognitions and accreditations.
As a centre of excellence in postgraduate business education, the GSB specialises in providing business and management-related programs which are relevant and purposeful in meeting the current and future needs of the industry locally as well as internationally. The programs are designed to provide real-world practical learning experiences that incorporate both hard and soft skills as well as to be intellectually challenging with well-grounded theories of leadership and management.
The UNIRAZAK Graduate School of Business is home to a wide variety of specialised academic programs that include Master of Business Administration (Online), Master of Business Administration, Master of Business Administration (Leadership), Master of Business Administration (Services Management), Master of Business Administration (Retail & Hypermarket), Master of Strategic Human Resource Management, Master of Management, Master of Philosophy (MPhil) and Doctor of Philosophy.
