The natural environment will be your living classroom as you gain practical technical skills for Outdoor Leisure and Adventure Management at Management and Science University (MSU).
Although still considered a niche market in Malaysia, the Outdoor Leisure and Adventure segment is seeing tremendous growth in the hospitality and tourism industry, providing increasing work opportunities for those with the right skills.
In line with the increasing demand for graduates with competent skills in planning, managing and organising recreational adventure events, Management and Science University (MSU) offers through its School of Hospitality and Creative Arts (SHCA) the Bachelor in Outdoor Leisure and Adventure Management (Honours) and the Diploma in Leisure Outdoor and Adventure Management.
The MSU programmes combine the practical aspects of adventure sports management with the relevant business management skills, to provide students with the necessary specialist knowledge in outdoor sports equipment as well as professional facilitator and coaching skills. Students gain a diverse range of subject-specific knowledge from specialist units selected to offer a broad understanding of the leisure sport industry.
The practical mix of academic study with skills training in adventure sport also provides students with opportunities to develop additional competencies for more specialized positions in various outdoor recreation settings. Future career options can be as varied, ranging from outfitter or guide service and outdoor leisure sport coaching in adventure tourism operation to environmental and youth education in community service.
Graduate employability is the ultimate priority at MSU, who works closely with both public and private sectors on the MSU University Industry Advisory Panel (UIAP) and the MSU Job Match Portal. A tracer study by the Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia shows close to 99% of MSU alumni securing employment within six months of their graduation.
