Warmest Greetings and Welcome to the School of Management,
It gives me a great pleasure to introduce you to the School of Management (SOM) Universiti Sains Malaysia. At SOM, we have approximately 2500 students (both undergraduates and postgraduates) and 65 dedicated and committed staffs. As you familiarize and get yourself acquainted to our school and USM campus, you will witness the strong sense of familiness which is at our core. We are dedicated to ensuring that our students are industry-ready and well-equipped with the future proof skills, hence our curriculum is designed and co-created with the industry partners and established agencies such as the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC).
At SOM, we are not only passionate about your academic achievement, but we care deeply about your overall well-being. You will soon realise that the school offers various activities that will help you sail your way through your academic life in a fun, enriching and enjoyable manner. The attitude of sensitivity and support reflects our approach in dealing with our students and the campus community.
We continuously strive to provide all students with access to an outstanding education and the future proof skills in an environment full of respect and inclusivity. The School of Management has a large composition of international students from various parts of the world including China, Egypt, Jordan, Pakistan, Indonesia, Oman, Ghana, Qatar, Nigeria, Somalia, Yemen, and many others. Hence, we encourage everyone to embrace our differences and celebrate our commonalities, learn from them, value the civil exchange of ideas and uphold academic freedom as a vital part of our educational mission.
At the university level, our commitment to academic excellence, diversity, equity, and inclusion has made USM a university that is both nationally and internationally recognized. USM has been ranked 4th in the Times Higher Education (THE) Impact Rankings 2022 on sustainability out of over 1,200 institutions across 98 countries around the world. The ranking highlights the social and economic impact created by universities around the world, based on the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Once you are a part of us, we do hope that you are proud of USM as we are. We look forward to watching your talents and creativity flourish during your time with us. We will make the best of your learning and living experience here at SOM and USM -- and importantly, we want you to know that we are here to support you in every step of the way should you decide to BE WITH US.
Thank you and best wishes.
