MONDAY, 28 APRIL – A total of 182 groups of Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) undergrads under the Humanity cluster participated in the 10th Basic Entrepreneurship Acculturation Expo (APK) starting today.
Themed ‘Live Simply, Dream Big’, APK expo is a platform for all undergrads to think creatively in planning business proposals to penetrate a wider market.
Dean of the Centre for the Promotion of Knowledge and Language Learning (PPIB), Prof. Dr. Vincent Pang in his speech said that undergrads nowadays need to equip themselves with soft skills to face the world of business challenges and job opportunities in future.
