Hi Mr Paramjeet and fellow classmates. Good day. Nice to meeting you guys here. I am Siti Zaidah from JB. You may call me Zai. I am residing in Pasir Gudang, Johor. Ya well, i guess most of you are from KL/ Selangor area, let’s catch up for a cup of coffee, in case you wish to visit Johor !😃
I have graduated from the most prestigious University in Malaysia, University of Malaya (UM) in Bachelor of Accounting. Upon grad, I have embarked my career in Accounting field and experienced in acounting position for five years mostly in manufacturing and semiconductor industry. I have been responsible on AP (Account Payable ) , AR (Account Receivable) and had the chance to in charge GL (general ledger) side, back in 2013-2018. Life has been a roller coaster but it’s give a good experience to my life journey. We never know what the future holds, unexpectedly after that I have made a career switch to Marketing line as my strong interest and passion in Marketing and Business. I found myself has a strong negotiation skills and networking ability. I am passionate, energetic and treasure my job as education marketer, in one of private University in JB. I have been an integral member of the Marketing Team for University and have been actively organised outreach programs, collaboration projects with other stakeholder in education industry , took in charge and led the team in various events in promoting University and the study program. Besides, I am also doing my ice-cream business ( niche in mochi ice-cream product)and having my own team.
Therefore, MBA is the right path for me to choose, as to apply whatever management/ business theories that I learn which would help me to manage my business well,build high-performance team besides to upgrade myself in term of qualifications. Actually, I have been planned to take this program since Dec 2019, but due to other work / family commitments, I keep on hold. Thanks to current pandemic situation that encourage Higher Institutions to go for an online mode, to provide flexible time arrangements in term of lecture session etc to the master students, thus I can manage my schedule.
The subject Strategic Decision Making and Management will lead me to learn about prioritization, making a decision at the right time, conflict management and problem solving skills. These skills are crucial for today’s leader to set a direction for the organisation and improve efficiency because anytime obstacles might come in the progress of the company,hence making a right decision will improve employee motivation and help the organisation survive, grow and thrive

Hi lecturer Paramjeet and all coursemates, it’s my pleasure to meet all of you here. You can call me FS and I’m from Shah Alam. I have completed my degree in Software Engineering from First City University College in Bandar Utama. Right away graduated from degree, I decided to pursue further (while my mind is still fresh as a student) and did a Master in IT Management from University of Nottingham Malaysia.
Once I got the ‘ticket’ to look for a job, I joined DXC Technology (back then it was known as CSC) as a fresh graduate programmer. After hustle for few years, I was promoted to senior programmer and currently as a team lead taking care DXC’s client Amgeneral Insurance. I have the chance to manage a small team but not in management level yet.
The objective of taking MBA is to upskill myself, to have competitive advantage and also to be well-prepared for management role in the future. Furthermore, by learning MBA, is a new opportunity for me to learn business knowledge that I can apply into my job in the future. My career aspiration is to have a managerial position to lead a big team and to help company to achieve its goals.
As my goal is to hold a managerial position, I strongly believe that strategic decision making and management is extremely important for me to succeed especially for a person in managerial role as he/she need to make the best decision for the employees and also need to manage his/her employees to work as a team in order to lead everyone to the right direction and goal.

Hello Mr Paramjeet & fellow course mates, my name is Saiful Bahtiar Bin Mat. Please call me, Saiful. I am from Miri, Sarawak. I have 4 children and actively involve in Mosque activities in my area.
I have a degree in Electronic & Computer Engineering from Universiti Putra Malaysia. I have 18 years of experience in oil & gas industry, however 5 years ago I decided to change my career and become a full time Unit Trust Consultant because I fall in love with investment & time freedom that it can offer me. Currently I am an Agency Manager, supporting 22 unit trust consultants and managing more than 500 clients in my agency.
I always believe that self-improvement is a continuous journey, and it ends when we say goodbye to this world. I trust that MBA with its syllabus is a good platform for me to learn and getting the right knowledge so that I could be a better manager in managing my consultants and business. By enrolling to MBA should also give clear example to my 2 daughters who currently in UIA & UNIMAS, that bachelor’s degree is not enough for them. They need to take master’s degree once they finish their degree. Hahaha
My career aspiration is to become a Group Agency Manager, managing more than 300 active, knowledgeable, and motivated consultants.
