WEDNESDAY, 27 APRIL - Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) continues to provide exposure to entrepreneurship and business t o its students.
UMS through the Faculty of Business, Economy and Accounting (FPEP) once again took this approach by organising a charity ‘Car Boot Sale’ at their parking area.
Programme coordinator, Dr. Mohd. Rahimie Abd Karim said, the programme was a platform for training and strengthened the students’ skills especially in business.
“Students are also exposed to effective communication techniques through two-way communication with their customers who come to buy their goods,” he told media at the programme.
He said the programme also involved outsiders, besides opening up opportunities to UMS staff to participate in the event.
“We are very pleased with the response received, not only among students but also from outsiders and UMS staff itself.
“I hope that this kind of engagement will continue in similar events in the future,” said Dr. Rahimie who is also the Deputy Dean (Student Welfare), UMS Centre for Postgraduate Studies.
Part of the rental for the lots went to the Single Mothers Association Sabah (PITSA).
Meanwhile, PITSA President, Norhanida Annol welcomed the move and was grateful for the initiative undertaken by FPEP UMS.
She said, such programme was timely in educating students to reach out to the community thus strengthening relationship between UMS and the community.
“This is also a good exposure for the students to experience the relationship with the public for their future use.
“We are also grateful to FPEP for providing PITSA with some lots to sell our goods,” she said. – SS (fl)
