In today’s growing and challenging environment, knowledge alone does not ensure success. What separates a successful professional from the average is their drive, personal attributes and resilience in the face of change and uncertainty in the global business environment. MERITUS University was founded on this premise. The founder, Tan Sri (Dr.) Halim Mohammad’s passion and lifetime experience in shipping and other business enterprise led to the formation of MERITUS.
As a niche university, MERITUS’s unique approach to education is to offer a practical and effective blend of traditional, modern and experiential learning to ensure success. Unlike other universities which only focuses on the academia, MERITUS is committed to producing well rounded graduates, capable of meeting the demands of today’s employers, instilled with the virtues of success and are sought after by top organisations upon graduation.
Malaysia’s vision to achieve a high income economy demands knowledge workers who are able to make a difference not only to the organisation but to society at large. They need to be industry leaders, resourceful, creative, analytical, innovative, committed and able to take ownership and solve challenging issues that matter.
In order to develop and produce such talents, our delivery concept encompasses a holistic learning environment where students are exposed to theoretical knowledge, life skills and a global perspective as follows:
- Academic knowledge in the field of maritime and shipping business, aviation, business, finance and development science.
- Life skills through community service and social engagement.
- Internship with industry leading companies.
- Hands-on experience where students will be required to sail on board training vessels owned by Halim Mazmin Group.
- Authentic learning through real life case studies and site visits.
- Effective communication and presentation skills.
Based on the above approach, graduates of MERITUS will have immediate employability and contribution to the industry. The leadership training that is embedded in the program would give them the required edge in their career development.
MERITUS has established a vast network of strategic partners to bring together industry captains well versed in their respective fields such as finance, technology, maritime, logistics, aviation and business to impart their knowledge to our students as well as provide them with internship or employment opportunities when they graduate. In addition, MERITUS is working in collaboration with accredited bodies. All these will provide the students with a unique learning environment that is like no other.
