About Management & Science University

The Management & Science University (MSU) is one of Malaysia’s top universities and focuses mainly in the critical areas of studies that encompass medicine, health sciences, pharmacy, information sciences and engineering, business management and professional studies, education and social sciences, hospitality, and culinary and creative arts.

Management and Science University (MSU) began its first intake in 2002. Over those years plenty had happened that have transformed MSU into what it is today. The full university status conferred to us in October of 2007 is perhaps one of the most important developments that have been added to our list of recognitions. It was a status given entirely due to the merits achieved since our inception in 2001.

Our focus on the industry relevant courses and our sensitivity to current trends, have aided our graduates in their professional undertakings. MSU’s forte is in the areas of medicine, health and life sciences, nursing, pharmacy, business, management, accounting, hospitality, law, information sciences and engineering. The focus on these areas has brought about a significant change to our graduates. Currently, 95 per cent of our graduates gained employment within six months of their graduation.

Of late we have witnessed a sizeable number of international students from the Middle East, Europe and South East Asia pursuing courses offered at MSU. Similarly, our International Student Exchange Programme (ISEP) has made it possible for our students and alumni to continue with the pursuit of their specialization studies at several universities in Europe, the USA, Australia and South East Asia.

As Malaysia’s best teaching and learning university, MSU gives priority to quality education and the importance of creative teaching methodologies towards producing quality graduates. Besides incorporating international exposure in the students learning experience, extensive industrial training components and personal enrichment competency are also blended into the programme of study to ensure the graduates employability.

The MSU Logo – Its Rationale – The Colours: Red, Black and White

The red and black colours are specifically chosen to depict a bold and balanced growth of MSU. Red connotes radiance and the vibrancy of MSU’s role in education against the Black colour which denotes change and the challenges confronting it. The colour white, on the other hand, implies the purity and infinity of knowledge for all to discover at MSU.

The Hibiscus

The national flower, the Hibiscus, symbolically represents MSU as a university deeply rooted within rich Malaysian values. MSU’s steadfastness is depicted through the generous red and white petals whereas the largest white dot, the stigma, at the end of the upward-surge of the style depicts a globe, signifying the University’s readiness to be a regional and global institution of choice. MSU’s focus areas of Medicine, the Health Sciences, Business Management and Information Sciences & Engineering are metaphorically linked with the hibiscus.

The complete flower is seen as symbolizing life vis-avis the focus on Medicine and Health Sciences related disciplines. The ‘M’ shaped petals represent the management whereas the style relates to the information sciences and engineering disciplines offered through MSU. The ‘M’ shaped petals are also closely associated with the elements of love and care embedded within MSU and its community. The five petals are MSU’s five mission statements in its quest at nurturing leaders of tomorrow through quality education professed by means of innovative teaching and learning methodologies that ensure students’ success.
