Aligned with the shared vision of both organizations, the partnership aims to nurture future leaders and equip them with the knowledge and skills necessary to positively impact society, both now and in the future. A significant aim of this collaboration is to provide the opportunity for individuals to obtain micro-credentials that are designed to rapidly equip individuals with specific skills in their respective fields. The signing ceremony took place at UOA Academy’s premises in Bangsar South. UNIRAZAK was represented by Mr. Amil Izham Hamzah, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Mr. Mohamed Fairuz, Chief Operating Officer (COO), while UOA Academy was represented by Mr. Dickson Kong, Head of Investment of UOA Group, Mr. Haikal Akmar, Chief Human Resources Officer of UOA Group and Mr. Aqmal Fikri, Head of UOA Academy.

According to Mr. Dickson Kong: “This partnership is not limited to only enhancing our academic offerings; it is also about strengthening our learning capabilities and encouraging the exchange of ideas and best practices. We firmly believe that this collaboration will create opportunities for our current and future learners to engage in meaningful academic exchanges, cultural immersion, and joint projects that will yield solutions to real-world challenges.”

Mr. Amil Izham Hamzah also shared his enthusiasm: “Learning is most effective when recognised and celebrated. In an age of continuous disruption, we need learning solutions that are agile and flexible. Micro-credentials allow us to quickly acquire targeted skills, keeping us relevant in our fields and adaptable to changing demands. Gone are the days of lengthy educational programs. The game-changing nature of our micro-credentials lies in its ability to reshape the workforce landscape, creating a skilled, agile, and competitive workforce that thrives amidst uncertainty.”

The signing of the MoU between UOA Academy and UNIRAZAK represents a significant milestone for both organizations, highlighting their commitment to collaboration and partnership towards developing the leaders of tomorrow through shorter learning programs that can better equip individuals with the necessary skills and knowledge to adapt to the ever-evolving demands of the job market.
