Business management as one of the most popular majors all over the world
The general public might think that business management is an “unneeded” course, a course that has less job prospects compared with other majors like engineering and medical majors, that one can do business without taking business management course. Actually this is not true in the business world today. As long as you are working for a company, you are a businessman even if you are a wage earner, you are an important part of the business organization, because you will have to find ways to help your boss increase profit. If you don’t have this knowledge, you can’t help your boss sell the products or services.
In the society, there are indeed many businesses different types of management. If you are just a wage earner, after working for some time and gain some work experience, you might consider changing your job by working at another company, to accumulate some more years of work experience. But how many jobs can you do in your life? How many years of experience can be accumulated? It is different in education. In terms of education, business management course is to give you a comprehensive blueprint and a comprehensive concept of thinking.
A two-and-a-half-year course allows you to learn about money management, market management, sales psychology, interpersonal relationships, domestic and foreign markets, etc… This knowledge can help you get started with your job easily. All businesses need good management before they can make a profit.
Graduate of MPI Mr Philip Hii’s sharing of his journey:
First of all, I am really grateful and honored to be invited to share my thoughts about my alma mater. Methodist Pilley Institute, the place where my dreams begin, I would like to compare it like the starting point for dream makers.
In 2010, I chose to study Diploma in Business Management programme at MPI. I finished the study in 2012. Then I continued to pursue BA(Hons) In Marketing in 2012 and graduated in 2014. Some people might say, why not go to a foreign university/study abroad, wouldn’t it be boring/less prospect to study in your hometown? I would say that in my hometown, I can be with my family members every day and eat home-cooked meal at home. Isn’t this what most people want, for especially people who work away from their hometown? If you feel the same, why not give yourself an opportunity to study in your hometown! Methodist Pilley Institute is located in Sibu, at the central region of Sarawak. Many nearby towns do not have private higher learning institutions. Methodist Pilley Institute can be a great choice for you, a quality education at your doorstep.
In the four and a half years of study at MPI, perhaps the most memorable thing will be the marketing studies. As the first batch of bachelor’s degree students in Methodist Pilley Institute, I realized that the institute really took good care of us. Organizing events as part of the curriculum allows us to learn more and experience more. I still remember the first volunteer activity in which we collected food donated by hawkers at the central market and delivered them to the nursing home. We fully realized the importance of human relations and learned to be content and be grateful. During that time, I also started up Pilley Badminton Club with my classmates from scratch, I learned to manage, learn to recruit, learn to communicate with people, learn to be systematic, learn to innovate and make breakthroughs. This kind of experience is most valuable to me.
Nearly six years after leaving the institute, it also means that it has been six years since I join the workplace. I believe that many people have asked this question – how does the study at MPI really help with my work now? My job is a sales and marketing management specialist in a financial institution. With the theory of marketing learned in the course, I can better grasp the critical success factors of my job and quickly absorb new ideas and fully apply them. The marketing degree programme at Methodist Pilley Institute has given me more competitive edge in the workplace, and even stand out from my colleagues in the job.
Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Methodist Pilley Institute for it’s the wonderful learning experience and care for each student. Thanks to the management for their hard work to make this programme available to more students. Thanks to the lecturers for their selfless dedication to educate us.
