Ready For Disaster

Students of Management and Science University (MSU) build crisis management readiness on skills learned from quake country

Four students of Management & Science University (MSU) attended a disaster management programme in Japan recently through the MSU Global Leadership Programme (GLP). The students, from the Faculty of Business Management and Professional Studies (FBMP), comprise Hafizah Nabilah Noor Jamal (Bachelor in Human Capital Management), Mohd Shareen Azmie Abdullah (Bachelor in Law & Commerce), Farah Adila Talib (Bachelor in Accountancy), and Jason Low Jin Poo (Bachelor in International Business).

The ten-day programme gathered a total of sixteen university students from Japan, Malaysia, and Indonesia. The joint effort by Kansai University of International Studies (KUIS) Center for Global Education and Asian Cooperative Programme (ACP) shared both experience and expertise. Themed “Safety and Reliability”, the programme focus was a field study in Hyogo Prefecture, scene of the Great Hanshin Awaji Earthquake of 1995 and now the HAT Kobe centre of research into Japan’s natural disasters.

Disaster management ranks among the community engagement skills important to the social responsibility concerns of Management and Science University (MSU), and delivering the hands-on learning is the MSU Global Leadership Programme (GLP). With the aim of grooming leadership ability to global competency level, GLP activities prepare MSU students to lead in transformative efforts for the future and the world.
