UCSI is proud of its strong links to industry, government, and other educational organisations. The University welcomes distinguished visitors from around the world and value the contribution these visits make to academic expansions and the internationalisation of the University.
According to Dr Kashif, while both UCSI and Superior University will retain its unique identity and mission, their combined capabilities will bring together the curricular offerings in hospitality and tourism to lead transformative education that will strengthen the position of both universities as world-class institutions.
"Through this collaboration, the Asia-Pacific region will see the entirety of our effort and determination in bringing together the unique strength in one of the world's largest industries to develop skilled human capital leading to senior positions and leadership careers for our students."
He also added that with the internationalisation of UCSI, students will have the enhanced access to the international opportunities and expertise that will contribute critically to their long-term success.
"It is all about education excellence. The more we can collaborate and the more we can engage with each other, I believe that we can create an even higher level of excellence in our students and academics. With this new collaboration, many hospitality and tourism companies might be interested in working with us and offer our students opportunities that will impact the transformation."
