MAHSA University’s Foundation in Business is a comprehensive course that prepares the young entrepreneur for direct entry into our business-related diploma and undergraduate degree programmes such as Accounting, Business Administration and Entrepreneurship, and other similar courses in other institutions of higher learning in the country and abroad.

If you have just completed your O Levels, SPM or its equivalent, and you are imagining a bright future with a long and lucrative career in business churning in unlimited amounts of money, and if you do not want to waste your time following the conventional route, then this is the course for you.

This foundation course is ideal for young minds who are contemplating a satisfying and financially rewarding future in business, but prefer an alternative route to higher education over the prolonged A Level studies or its equivalent. On a broader spectrum, this course will be a bridge between secondary school education and university-style academics, helping students transition from traditionally aided learning to independent thinking and questioning. Specifically, the Foundation in Business will lead students into the exploration of business principles and practices, and teach them to think and learn independently.

The course is directed at developing thinking skills with which to undertake degree-level studies while generating business acumen in the young individual’s mind. Students learn first-hand from experienced business teachers, and get to actively participate in business scenarios and make hypothetical business decisions. At the end of the course, each student will be ready to delve completely into our diploma and degree programmes, or any similar programme in any institution of higher learning, with the level of confidence characteristic of any capable undergraduate student and future successful entrepreneur.

What is remarkable about our Foundation of Business is that it is a part of a traditionally science-based learning institution, which means that we will provide insights that most business colleges cannot claim to have. You, future successful entrepreneur, will be mingling with future doctors, future engineers, future dentists and other scientifically-minded people. In this way, your experiences and your thinking will be deeply enriched and enhanced, paving the way for a superior and exciting educational journey. Because after all, a successful life should be an exhilarating journey, and not merely a pre-set destination.
