University of Malaysia Kelantan

Introduction

Championing in Entrepreneurship

The concept of entrepreneurial development of UMK has been proven effective with nearly 40 companies and business entreprises that are own by UMK students who are still pursuing their studies.

In line with the government’s vision to propel the country to become a high-income nation, UMK aspires to help perpetuating this noble intention by making headway in proliferating the human capital so as to spur on the country’s development. Since its inception in 2007, UMK has been steadily instrumental in championing entrepreneurship education in Malaysia in order to produce multitalented graduates.

Centralising on the concept, “Entrepreneurship is Our Thrust”, efforts in upholding entrepreneurship education would be unavailing without efficient and effective manpower. Advancing on the platform of excellence, YBhg. Prof. Dato' Dr. Mortaza Bin Mohamed, the Vice Chancellor, at the head of the university together with staunch supports from the top management as well as the stalwarts of academicians, they have all prepared UMK to become a reputable institution of higher learning in offering programmes of high quality that meet market demand. Starting off with only four programmes (Creative Technology, Heritage, Entrepreneurship & Business and Applied Science – Agricultural Technology Entreprenuership), now UMK offers twenty-seven diversed programmes at five different faculties in conjunction with the current demand and development of the industry.

In preparation for a further solid development on the human capital, assistance is sought from a steadfast support system so as to meet the demand of the stakeholders. The indefatigable support staff and efficient ecosystem have contributed in providing a conducive and consilient learning environment for students. In tandem with modern advancement, UMK is now ready to explore all the possibilites.
