Overseas programs accreditation

Schools or individual with similar quality and objectives as UCAM can apply to represent UCAM accredited strategic partner and offer our MBA in their respective city or region.

The Overseas Programs Accreditation Unit is an impartial business unit to identify strategic partners/schools/training centres whom may be interested to management and offer UCAM MBA in their respective location of interest. This strategic business unit aims to accelerate our outreach to more students whom can benefit from our MBA.  UCAM offers a wide variety of studies, both for undergraduate and postgraduate, as well as vocational training and PhD.

We have invested all our 20 years’ efforts to accomplish what you witness today.  Internationalisation is a key component for our university outreach strategy.  We have witnessed exponential growth in recent years.  These growths have given us insights into global trends, technological, cultural and network advantages which in turn enhances our students’ employability, as a result we would like to create a dynamic learning environment network to offer our programmes.
