TUESDAY, 15 MARCH – The K-Shopped and KopieSatu franchise will make its way to Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) campus and this would give an opportunity for students to experience business acumen.
Chairman of the Federal Agricultural Marketing Authority (FAMA), Tan Sri Badruddin Amiruldin said, FAMA had allocated a total of RM75,000 to set up K-Shoppe, which would be built in the near future under the Agricultural Graduate Entrepreneurship Club (MyAgrosis) UMS.
“The running of business would be conducted by UMS students, and this effort would not only increase their knowledge in the field of business, but also provide opportunities for students to use their discretion in improving their skills.
