DBA Helped In Preparation To Be A High-Ranking Officer


KUALA LUMPUR-Who would have thought Ir Dr Khairil Anwar Abu Kassim, a graduate in Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) UCSI University is now the Director-General of the Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research (MIROS).

He who graduated in 2017 admitted that his DBA education journey at UCSI University was fascinating because of the interactive learning session.

“The good thing about DBA offered by UCSI University is that we get to learn from experienced lecturers who are experts in the industry and academics. We always have a class where we debate and ‘argue’ to help us understand a situation,” he said.

“We also learned about research, leadership, global movement corporate strategy and everything that you need to become a chief executive officer or managing director as well as to enhance yourself in a great career in the future. It helped us to understand more about how the world has become,” he added.

Dr Khairil worked as an engineer in Japan for two years after he graduated before coming back to Malaysia to work in the same industry for another decade. In 2008, he finally joined MIROS.

As a product of DBA, he highly encouraged Master students to further their studies to the DBA level.
