Message from alumni

Marshitah Tajudin

The decision that I made to study in Japan is definitely a treasured one. As a working professional, I gained insights of the Japanese business and technical culture; not just theoretical but also practical-wise. The courses taught are in line with current trend and the lecturers are very knowledgeable, helpful and inspiring, I had the chance to experience my first international conference and had built a relationship with Japanese managers of various backgrounds. I definitely benefit in both professionally and inter-personally from my 2 years' time in Japan.
