Featured Course


Offered By: Asia-Europe Institute, University of Malaya

Given the gaps in information and knowledge both within and between countries, especially between Asia and Europe, this programme will promote local and global sharing of new information and communication technologies much needed in the 21st century. The impact of the New Economy on organizational structures, management, and development processes requires a strong grounding in economics of information and organizational systems that promote information sharing. This Postgraduate programme is designed to offer breadth of content, intellectual depth, and rigour complemented with attention to a wide range of applications and case studies. It will be of relevance to business managers as well as those concerned with organizational development, internet, and new media training, e-ecommerce, also research analysts and others.

This International Masters programme runs for 10 months, full-time, commencing in September.

Aims And Objectives
The increasing globalisation of business, the expansion of information technology (IT) and competition for markets has meant that participation in the business word required expertise of the knowledge economy (k-economy). Skills that have been identified for the new economy transcend many disciplines such as computing, economics, and organizational studies. Popular subjects associated with the K-Economy include fields such as management, economics, and marketing.

This particular course is designed by AEI to develop this expertise by equipping students with specialist knowledge of the link between ICT, and K-Economy and the business environment in Asia and Europe. Such skills are invaluable to small-scale enterprises, multinational corporations, and policy makers in the region to ensure competitive edge and success in a global market.

The programme requires students to undertake a total of 13 academic courses, an internship and write a project paper, amounting to a total of 48 credits. The requirements are categorised in the following modules:
