Entrepreneurship and engagement ultimately generate greater social, cultural, and economic impact. ACEEU accredits Management and Science University (MSU).

Management and Science University (MSU) is the newest institution internationally recognized by ACEEU as entrepreneurial and engaged.

First in Asia, as announced by MSU President at the 24th Convocation Ceremony of Management and Science University (MSU), the 2019 recognition has been given by the Accreditation Council for Entrepreneurial and Engaged Universities, an accrediting body initiated by the University Industry Innovation Network (UIIN) and based in the Netherlands.

ACEEU is driven by an international group of experts in engagement and entrepreneurship, who envisions universities of the future to generate greater social, cultural, and economic impact through entrepreneurship and engagement.

Social entrepreneurship thrives at MSU, spearheaded by the university’s Founder, Professor Tan Sri Dato’ Wira Dr Mohd Shukri Ab Yajid.

For his entrepreneurial leadership providing equal access to education, and his successful creation of the university’s entrepreneurship ecosystem, the MSU President received the Asia Pacific Entrepreneurship Award (APEA) for Entrepreneur of the Year
 in 2017.

MSU had also been recognized by the Ministry of Education Malaysia as the
Most Entrepreneurial Private University 2016.


Academic, practical, social and business aspects of entrepreneurship are supported by industry leadership and talent on-board the MSU University-Industry Advisory Panel (UIAP) and the MSU Leadership and Entrepreneurship Advancement and Development (LEAD) Institute, as well as industry insights facilitated by the university’s President Lecture Series (PLS).
