Cloud HR software provider Info-Tech and Multimedia University (MMU) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to bolster students’ development through a series of initiatives enabled by Info-Tech’s tools.
In a joint statement, both parties said the MoU signing is deemed a mutually beneficial partnership as Info-Tech and MMU take strides to provide educational opportunities and industry experiences to the next generation while fostering a competent workforce for the industry.
Both parties said since the onset of the pandemic, businesses and educators have increasingly embraced and relied on digital tools.
This proves that digital transformation is no longer a trend; it is an essential imperative for companies to adapt to stay afloat in these critical times, they added.
The company is working hand-in-hand with MMU by introducing Info-Tech Cloud HR software as part of the curriculum for the students in the Bachelor of Business Administration (Hons) Human Resource Management programme.
This initiative will provide hands-on experience to the students through learning and practice using cloud HR software, it said.
Chairman of Info-Tech Peter Lee said, “I have always been wanting to work with MMU in encouraging students to be more digitally savvy. With the input of our specialists into the syllabus, I believe the students are able to achieve a breakthrough in their capabilities and lead over their peers.
“This will help them to become future-ready in the face of digitalisation.”
Info-Tech also said it is leveling up the digital game by offering industrial training opportunities to the students at MMU.
These students will be able to safeguard their future careers by further honing their HR skills and knowledge from the top industrial players, it said.
Mazliham Mohd Su'ud, MMU’s president and CEO, said, “As one of the premier digital tech Institutes accorded by the Ministry of Higher Education and Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC), this partnership is in line with our mission of making sure our students are constantly staying at the forefront of this industry.
“The MoU exemplifies the collaboration between academia and industry; a higher educational institution and a private corporate organisation to raise the bar for developing future-ready students for the benefit of the nation,” he said.
