BRIEF HISTORY OF UNIRAZAK


4
UNIVERSTITI TUN ABDUL RAZAK ANNUAL REPORT 2011

Universiti Tun Abdul Razak (UNIRAZAK) was established on 18th December 1997 as one of the first private universities in Malaysia. The University was named after Malaysias second Prime Minister, the late YAB Tun Abdul Razak bin Dato Hussein, and officially launched on 21st December 1998 by Tun Abdul Razaks eldest son, YAB Dato Seri Mohd Najib bin Tun Abdul Razak, current Prime Minister and then Minister of Education. On 1st March 2007, Tun Abdul Razak Education Foundation (Yayasan PINTAR) acquired Universiti Tun Abdul Razak Sdn. Bhd. (owner of Universiti Tun Abdul Razak) from KUB Malaysia Berhad. Since its inception, UNIRAZAK was among the first few private learning institutions in Malaysia to receive the SIRIM certification of ISO 9001:2000. Additionally, the University has been awarded the prestigious Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) status, which is a testament to the Universitys commitment in integrating technology and innovation in its teaching and learning techniques. UNIRAZAK has rapidly established itself as a premier centre for education in its efforts to produce competitive and capable graduates. UNIRAZAK is highly accessible to the community. Its main campus, RAZAK Campus is strategically located in the centre of Kuala Lumpur, between the Golden Triangle and the Central Business District. Its PINTAR campus in Petaling Jaya is just 30 minutes away from the city of Kuala Lumpur and 45 minutes away from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). These strategic locations ensure that our students have easy access to various public transportation systems to and from both our campuses. As of 31st December 2010, UNIRAZAK has more than 10,000 students studying in 62 academic programmes at the diploma, undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The University prides itself in developing relevant programmes to meet todays needs. All our academic programmes, which were developed through close consultation with business and industry partners, the public sector and professionals, are approved by the Malaysian Higher Education Ministry (MOHE) and are developed to meet the high standards required by the Malaysian Qualification Agency (MQA). Presently under the auspices of the Tun Abdul Razak Educational Foundation (Yayasan PINTAR), UNIRAZAK is embarking on the next crucial phase of its growth. Its new vision is to become the leading institution in providing quality education and human capital in niche areas or body of knowledge among emerging economies. UNIRAZAK also intends to enhance its cooperation and collaborative networks through strategic alliances with top-ranking international universities, renowned in their respective fields. In executing these plans, UNIRAZAK hopes to further boost its presence in the global education market, and at the same time, offer its students a higher quality of educational experience. By continuously striving for excellence, the University is well on its way in becoming an important educational institution in this country and the region. By delivering a world-class learning experience, UNIRAZAK aspires to be an institution that produces great thinkers who will become the accomplished leaders of tomorrow. Universiti Tun Abdul Razak. Innovation. Leadership. Entrepreneurship.

UNIVERSTITI TUN ABDUL RAZAK ANNUAL REPORT 2011

UNIVERSITY LOGO

It is a portrait of the plant shoot, which symbolises growth and development, the goal and pride of Universiti Tun Abdul Razak. Colours are crucial for optimal representation of Universiti Tun Abdul Razak. Red is the passion and love for the pursuit of holistic education, whilst grey provides the balance in wisdom, modesty and reliability. The upturned peak in this symbol emphasizes the concept of growth and evolution that constitutes the attitude that the people of Universiti Tun Abdul Razak bring to their work. More importantly, it denotes leadership - the cornerstone of the university - in learning excellence, integrity, organisational skills, creativity and civic consciousness. It is the crucial point after the first initiation of growth, before the final burst into adulthood. This demonstrates the universitys role in preparing and nurturing students for the life that comes after the days of comfort in formal education. The curve on the bottom left and top right corners combine with the straight line in the middle to project imagery of efficiency, expertise and leadership. The image in its entirety suggests speed and surefootedness, as if the journey to excellence is unquestioned certainty. The word Universiti, being the establishment as a whole, is set in Franklin Gothic font as a fitting contrast to Universiti Tun Abdul Razak. The letters are placed further apart one from another in order to achieve aesthetic balance and sufficient emphasis, as they are smaller and softer in colour. Grey is the colour of balance, wisdom, intelligence and reliability, which reflects the universitys trademark characteristics. Universiti Tun Abdul Razak is set in Barmeno font for its majestic and bold appearance that is not hard on the eyes. The length of these words is evenly spread out from the symbol of the shoot through the word Universiti and right to its end for the purpose of symmetrical aesthetics. Equilibrium is rendered on the logo as a whole, and attention may thus be evened out on each element. Red represents the passion, love and enthusiasm for excellent and holistic education.

UNIVERSITY MACE

15
UNIVERSTITI TUN ABDUL RAZAK ANNUAL REPORT 2011

The design of the mace is divided into three main components representing the three levels of university study namely the Bachelors degree, the Masters degree and the Doctor of Philosophy. The three main components are: * The upper part known as the torch * The middle part known as the chalice * The lower part known as the shaft All these elements are designed to reflect the Universitys commitment towards realising the vision, mission and objectives of the University. The torch engraved on the top end of the mace, adapted from the logo of UNIRAZAK, symbolises the ultimate role of the University as a beacon of light that spreads knowledge throughout the national, regional and global communities. The five facets of the mace symbolise the five pillars of the Rukun Negara or National Commandments which are constantly upheld under any circumstances. The name of the University is engraved around the base of the torch in Roman script, signifying the unity of the whole university community. The chalice portrays the main function of the university in pursuing knowledge. The name of the university engraved in Jawi script represents determination and faith which are the basic and fundamental thrust of university education. The motifs of the gold thread songket at the lower part of the chalice express the universitys aspiration to continue its knowledge dissemination while upholding Malaysian traditional values and culture. The logo of the university which is surrounded by carvings of Malaysias official national flower, the Hibiscus, signifies the philosophy of the University and the dynamism of the various academic programmes offered. The shaft symbolises the readiness to contribute knowledge and expertise for the advancement and development of the people and the nation. The Quranic verses from the Surah Al-Mujadalah (58:11) and Az-Zumar (39:9) contain the call for courage in seeking knowledge and upholding the truth, which reminds us of our unending responsibility to nurture, protect and celebrate academic achievement among students, faculty and staff. The Pending or Malay belt buckle depicts energy, power and ability in producing dynamic scholars who are pragmatic, creative and innovative to contribute towards the advancement of Malaysian society and the country.

THE CHAIRMAN MESSAGE

17
UNIVERSTITI TUN ABDUL RAZAK ANNUAL REPORT 2011

2010 was another landmark year for Universiti Tun Abdul Razak (UNIRAZAK). We sustained our growth in terms of enrolment and number of offered academic programmes, and continued to move forward in our vision to become the leading institution in providing quality education and human capital in niche areas among emerging economies.

In 2010 we experienced solid growth close to our 2009 high, and we anticipate continued growth in the year 2011 as we rollout new programmes and further solidify our existing partnerships with various academic, professional and government institutions. We remain committed to building new partnerships as we look to expand our reach and grow in tandem with various institutions, both local and international.

Our niche academic programmes continue to provide an alternative to the mainstream programmes offered in other educational institutions and we look forward to the upcoming graduation of our first intake of students for these niche programmes. We anticipate a strong alumni association to keep track of our graduates and enable them to feel connected to UNIRAZAK throughout their careers.

As our vision is to become a regional player, our marketing efforts remain strong and we continue to aggressively pursue students from around the region. Our focus is on quality not quantity, and we continue to seek the best students available who can impact our success and become our brand ambassadors during and after their studies.

With the stewardship of YBhg. Prof Datuk Dr. Md. Zabid Haji Abdul Rashid, I anticipate 2011 to be another year of milestone events, with more growth to solidify our current gr Universiti Tun Abdul Razak

The President and Vice Chancellors Report

THE PRESIDENT AND VICE CHANCELLORS REPORT


Bismillahirahmanirrahim (jawi) Assalaamualaikum w.brt (jawi) 2010 was a productive year for UNIRAZAK as we sustained our growth and made new inroads in our vision and mission. The number of our offered academic programmes increased to 62 and academic enrolment was nearly as high (4,046 students) as was seen in 2009 (4,195 students). Our Centre for Executive Education (CEE) continued to attract interest from corporations as a centre for professional training. Additionally, our Case Writers Club continues to make great strides, by becoming Malaysias largest Case Writers Club in terms of membership and releasing over 40 case studies in 2010. In our effort to become the leading institution in providing quality education and human capital, UNIRAZAK took further steps in 2010 by exploring partnerships and collaboration with more professional bodies and has signed Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) with 4 more organisations. They were Malaysian Association of Tax Accountants (MATA), Perbadanan Usahawan Nasional Berhad (PUNB), Chartered Tax Institute of Malaysia (CTIM), and the Ministry of Human Resource (MOHR). At the international level, we have forged collaborative relationships with institutions such as University of Valencia, Cairo University and Ministry of Investment Egypt. In addition to existing ones, these new partnerships and collaborations have enabled UNIRAZAK and the respective institutions to benefit by sharing each others knowledge, expertise and resources. I am confident that these new partners will help UNIRAZAK to propel itself even further as one of Malaysias premier private universities. To help ensure the realisation of the vision and mission, the UNIRAZAK International Advisory Board (IAB) was established as a prominent and supportive group of individuals with a strong, broad-based range of expertise in business and/or education to promote the Universitys opportunities and priorities. Each year, the IAB will convene for a two-day meeting in Malaysia. Among others, the purpose of the meeting are to advise in identifying new opportunities; current trends and issues in the external environment in which the University operates, provide assistance in identifying strategic stakeholders and potential partners to help the University achieve its strategic goals and plans; and advice on future direction of the University consistent with the changing environmental landscape. August 2010 saw the relocation of the PINTAR Campus from Kelana Jaya to Leisure Commerce Square in Petaling Jaya. With a total floor space of 183,232 sq. feet, the new campus is strategically located within Klang Valley and accessible via expressways (Federal Highway and the LDP) and public transport system such as KTM Komuter and bus services. It will cater to the increasing teaching and learning needs of the University, to a maximum capacity of 10,000 students, with modern facilities including lecture rooms, computer labs, language labs, culinary and pastry kitchens, cafeteria, student lounge, library, etc. To enhance the effectiveness of its governance and management, UNIRAZAK has made some organisational additions and changes. In line with the requirement by the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) the UNIRAZAK Board of Governors was established as the governing, policy making and monitoring body of the University. Further on, the Board of Governors endorsed the new UNIRAZAK Constitution which was drafted based on MOHEs template. The posts of Registrar and Bursar were introduced and inducted as members of the University Management Committee. Additionally, the organisational structure has been revamped to improve the efficacy and delivery of the faculties and departments within the University. We believe all these changes will streamline our activities and put us in a better position to face future challenges.

As we move into 2011, our primary thrust is to strive towards promoting a passion for excellence in providing quality higher education and excellent human capital. The continued success of UNIRAZAK has been achieved only because of the efforts of our many talented staff, students and other stakeholders. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all staff and students who have worked hard throughout 2010, and hope that we will strive harder, to ensure our continued success in the coming year. Let us continue to be guided by UNIRAZAKs core values in our progress and pursuit of our vision and mission to become the leading institution in providing quality education and human capital in niche areas among emerging economies.

NEW ACADEMIC INITIATIVES


Bureau For Excellence In Research And Teaching (Bert)
BERT was established in early 2010 to enhance effective and innovative pedagogy, learning, publication of research work and case studies, of academic staff in UNIRAZAK. In summary, BERT is: A facility to support the Schools, Faculties, COL, and CLGS in Universiti Tun Abdul Razak to meet MQA and management requirements in teaching A facility to support the Schools, Faculties, COL, and CLGS in Universiti Tun Abdul Razak meet management and academic community requirements in research Some of BERTs activities during the year 2010: Training Needs Analysis Dialogues In June, BERT introduced two new series namely Training Needs Analysis Dialogues (Research) and Training Needs Analysis (Teaching). A total of four sessions on research were attended by a total of 55 lecturers from six faculties/schools, and there were another four sessions on teaching. Teaching Evaluation Report (TER) Revamp BERT was entrusted to re-write the questions in the TER questionnaire which was subsequently uploaded for the January 2010 semesters exercise onwards. Student Satisfaction Survey The Student Satisfaction Survey questionnaire has also been revised in line with MOHEs requirement to provide the management with more relevant information and feedback from the students for improvement actions. Network Generations (Net Genners) BERT has conducted a study to compare the characteristics of Network Generations (Net Genners) in the USA obtained through substantial literature survey and Malaysian Net Genners in order to evaluate the adoptability in Malaysia of teaching and learning methods employed in the USA. The outcome of the findings was summarised as follows: Malaysian Net Genners are not ready for the teaching and learning methods adopted in the USA, without more rigorous awareness of their rights and rigorous re-training of their lecturers in order to espouse the up-to-date teaching and learning methods to bring Malaysian students on par with their counterparts in the developed world.

INDUSTRY RELATIONS

Advisory meeting with the Faculty of Information Technology on 10/11/2010

Based on feedback from the industry partners, UNIRAZAK will undertake measures to: To reconsider longer industrial training for all degree students to expose them to a real job environment. To expose students to interact with the industry earlier in their first year of studies instead of the current practical training commencing only after 2.5 years in university. However theoretical aspects are still important even though the industry highlights on skills. To embed industrial professional certifications materials in the syllabus to ensure students are exposed to the technical aspects of the industrial standards. Embedding the training as a compulsory component in the bachelor programme. To ensure lecturers also possess industrial-based certification on the courses that they teach to the highest level. Programmes to be carried out in collaboration with industries so that the right type of interns / graduates are supplied to the industry. Changes to improve the curriculum will need to follow quality procedures set by the university. Approvals from MQA may take six months to a year from date of application. The industry needs to be informed that universities have their limitations as all academic programmes are governed by MQA.

RESEARCH AND PUBLICATIONS


Research is fundamental to the strength of UNIRAZAK and plays a major role in helping to fulfill the Universitys mission. As a central tenet of the UNIRAZAKs mission, research complements and invigorates teaching, as well as collectively supports the preservation, dissemination and advancement of knowledge for the betterment of society. The academic staff of UNIRAZAK comes from a variety of academic backgrounds and experiences but all will be expected to be involved in scholarly or research activities that enhance teaching. Full-time, part-time and adjunct academic staffs are encouraged to be practitioners as well as researchers. The impact of their active practitioner roles on the relevance of their teaching in all degree programmes is informed by insights from practitioners and formal research activities. The University Research Committee, which meets once in a three months, serves as the consultative body to safeguard the research quality, administer and guide research operations in the University. It provides a means to discuss initiatives, policies and code of practices to inculcate good research culture among the academic community; and the setting up of the Research and Publications Department in April 2009 provides the University with a stronger base to build a conducive environment for research. Research at this University is dynamic and always evolving; inspiring the active mind and providing new ways of thinking that lead to innovation. The summary of this report is a public acknowledgement of the efforts of UNIRAZAK academic staff; and the University hopes that this will further motivate them to promote the conduct as well as dissemination of significant research under the aegis of UNIRAZAK.

UNIVERSTITI TUN ABDUL RAZAK ANNUAL REPORT 2011

UNIRAZAKs Case Writers Club (CWC) is led by its President, Assoc. Prof. Datin Dr Raja Hanaliza (also Vice President of Finance and Services). In 2010 UNIRAZAKs CWC grew from its 2009 membership of 19 members to 44 active members, making it the club with the highest number of members in the Case Writers Association of Malaysia (CWAM). The growth was propelled by the support from the top management who felt that, as a body of education, it was essential for UNIRAZAK to build a library of case studies from which to study and learn from, and for its academics to share their research and findings. All of the members are trained to write case studies in 2 different styles, including the Harvard method. This enables them to adapt their case studies according to the requirements at hand. On 5th May 2010, UNIRAZAKs CWC launched their new logo, website, and first volume of 21 cases. During this event CWC also also had a special role-play in which various members of UNIRAZAKs Case Writers Club dramatised one of their case studies for the audience. Adapted from a case study titled Regal Crown Hotel: To Yield or Not To Yield written by Prof. Dr. Nor Khomar, it was dramatised by Assoc Prof. Lynne Norazit, Director of UNIRAZAKs Centre for Languages and General Studies, and her team to fully illustrate the case study and to deliver it to the audience in a more engaging, visual format. In the future, UNIRAZAKs Case Writers Club will also participate in international conferences and also conduct more roleplaying events.

QUALITY ASSURANCE
Rating System For Higher Education Institutions In Malaysia

Background In 2009, the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) through the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) introduced a rating system for Malaysian higher education institutions, known as SETARA09. It measures the quality of teaching and learning at the undergraduate level in universities and university colleges in Malaysia. In assessing the quality of teaching and learning, the SETARA09 rating instrument covers three generic dimensions of input, process and output. The input dimension addresses talent, resources and governance. The process dimension focuses on curriculum matters. The output dimension takes on the quality of graduates. Data for a total of 25 criteria captured through 82 indicators were sourced for the final analysis from the participating institutions as well as the Academic Performance Audit (APA), the Generic Student Attributes (GSA) test score, the Tracer Study, and the Employer Survey. Benchmark figures were established for the indicators. The resulting rating system classifies its rating into a six-tier category ranging from Tier 1 identified as Weak to Tier 6 identified as Outstanding. UNIRAZAK participated in the SETARA09 rating exercise. The Results In July 2010, the SETARA09 results were announced by MOHE. UNIRAZAK was rated as Tier 4 - Very Good institution alongside with 11 public higher education institutions and 13 private higher education institutions. INSTITUTIONAL AUDIT ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE AUDIT (APA) Background In 2009, UNIRAZAK was subjected to an Institutional Audit conducted by the Malaysian Qualification Agency (MQA). The Institutional Audit, known as Academic Performance Audit (APA), is an evaluation of an institution to determine whether it is achieving its mission and goals, identify strengths and areas of concern and enhance quality, as provided under one of the provisions of MQA Act 2007. The evaluation was carried out based on MQAs Code of Practice for Institutional Audit (COPIA) 2009 which covers criteria and quality assurance standards set for the following nine areas: Area1 Vision, Mission, Educational Goals and Learning Outcomes Area 2 Curriculum Design and Delivery Area 3 Assessment of Students Area 4 Student Selection and Support Services Area 5 Academic Staff Area 6 Educational Resources Area 7 Programme Monitoring and Review Area 8 Leadership, Governance and Administration Area 9 Continual Quality Improvement

The COPIAs criteria and quality assurance standards are intended to help develop, enhance, and strengthen institutional effectiveness.

59
The APA report is not intended to penalise or reward institutions accordingly i.e. institutions do not pass or fail the APA. It contains the Panel of Auditors affirmations, commendations, and recommendations which serve as feedback and improvement opportunity for the audited institutions. The Results The initial results of APA for UNIRAZAK were released by MQA in September 2010. It bears 1 commendation, 6 affirmations and 11 recommendations and UNIRAZAK was given the opportunity to respond and rectify matters raised in the report. Feedbacks to the report were submitted to MQA on 15th November 2010. MQA is due to consider the feedbacks and reproduce the final report sometime in early 2011. MALAYSIAN SOFT SKILLS SCALE (My3S)
UNIVERSTITI TUN ABDUL RAZAK ANNUAL REPORT 2011

Background The Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE), in view of its importance, has introduced Soft Skills that should be nurtured to students in higher education institutions. The Soft Skills are generic skills across a variety of learning domains including aspects of personality and teamwork. MOHE has identified seven key elements of the Soft Skills i.e. communication skills, critical thinking and problem solving skills, teamwork skills, lifelong learning and information management, entrepreneurial skills, moral and professional ethics, and leadership skills. My3S, or Malaysian Soft Skills Scale, is an instrument developed and used by MOHE to gauge Soft Skills attributes acquired by students and it contains 180 elements which measure the Soft Skills. On 9th March 2010, final year bachelor programme students of UNIRAZAK participated in the My3s assessment. The Results Overall, for all of the measured Soft Skills, UNIRAZAK students met the benchmark standards. Nationally, UNIRAZAK students scores are above the national average. The performance of UNIRAZAK students are reflected in the charts below:

The right package of rewards is an essential aspect of a well defined talent retention strategy. In 2010, 85% of staff had attended soft skills training that comprised of Coaching for High Performance, Managing Staff Discipline, and Decision Making Skills for Managers. Executives have been exposed to communication skills that comprise of frontline service, report writing, effective filing and documentation. The support staff have been given the same training opportunities but at a more suitable pace. In the area of performance management, UNIRAZAK introduced its Staff Career Progression Programme that will ensure staff plan for their career advancement. Staff are given the opportunity to assess themselves to a higher grade by comparing their attributes to stipulated criteria in that particular grade. This programme motivated achievers to link their individual performance in congruence to the organisational strategy to ensure that the universitys standards of excellence are maintained.

School Exhibitions

UNIRAZAKs Marketing Department attended a total of 31 local public exhibitions in 2010, mostly in Kuala Lumpur. The local public exhibitions surged to its peak in March in view of the SPM and STPM results released in the same month. These exhibitions provided the most effective platform to promote and disseminate education information to potential parents and students. Participations in school exhibitions, on the other hand, acted as a soft marketing approach to generate awareness among Form 4, 5 and 6 students on the programmes offered by UNIRAZAK. Through UNIRAZAKs collaboration with Doctorjob, a popular educational magazine publisher with extensive network connections with secondary schools in the Klang Valley, a total of 26 schools was selected to conduct personality tests, career talks and exhibitions. Such activities picked up in April and reached their height in July and slowed down in August as SPM / STPM examinations approached.

Relocation Of Pintar Campus In August 2010 PINTAR Campus in Kelana Jaya was relocated to Leisure Commerce Square in Petaling Jaya. With a total floor space of 183,232 sq. feet, the new PINTAR campus is strategically located within Klang Valley and accessible via expressways (Federal Highway and the LDP) and public transport system such as KTM Komuter and bus services. It will cater to the increasing teaching and learning needs of the University, to a maximum capacity of 10,000 students, with modern facilities including lecture rooms, computer labs, language labs, culinary and pastry kitchens, cafeteria, student lounge, library, etc. Relocated Schools, Faculties, Colleges and Centres include: The Graduate School (GS) The Faculty of Business Administration (FBA) The Faculty of Education and Social Sciences (FESS) The Faculty of Hospitality and Tourism Management (FHTM) The Faculty of Information Technology (FIT)

UNIVERSTITI TUN ABDUL RAZAK ANNUAL REPORT 2011

Through UNIRAZAKs Student Affairs Department (STADD), a variety of corporate social responsibility (CSR) programmes and activities were undertaken by both UNIRAZAK staff and students in 2010. These 24 activities were carried out nationwide thanks to our 8 regional centres based in Kedah, Kelantan, Johor, Sarawak, Sabah, Perak, Penang, and Melaka. The CSR activities included fund raising for Pakistani flood victims, visits to orphanages and local shelters, and learning workshops for secondary school students. For a comprehensive list of these CSR activities, please refer to the Community Works table under the Student Affairs section above. In addition to the various CSR activities undertaken by UNIRAZAKs Student Affairs Department, there were also some CSR activities initiated and organised by UNIRAZAKs Corporate Communications and Public Affairs Department. On 26th August 2010, UNIRAZAK hosted an an iftar, or breaking of the fast, for about 30 orphans, critically disabled children, and their families from Rumah Silaturrahim Nurul Qanaah and Persatuan Sokongan Ibu dan Anak Kurang Upaya Azwar Kuala Lumpur dan Selangor. The iftar was held at Masjid Wilayah Persekutuan on 26th August 2010, which also coincided with Nuzul Quran, the date in which Muslims believe the Holy Prophet first received the Quranic verses. UNIRAZAK invited Rumah Silaturrahim due to their strong commitment to education the orphans it houses are provided with a complete holistic education that imparts both academic and spiritual knowledge. Persatuan Azwar is an association that cares for critically disabled children and provides support to their families, and unfortunately has been neglected in the past. UNIRAZAK invited them to show that they have not been forgotten, and to help raise awareness of the help and assistance that these critically disabled children need.
