Malaysia's Putra Business School Launches New MBA Program

17-month modular MBA aimed at executives

Malaysia's Putra Business School has announced the launch of new MBA program aimed at executives.

The new "Practising Leader MBA" — or PLMBA— will take 17 months to complete and will be delivered on a modular schedule. Participants will be able to start the program in one of three intakes: January, May, and September.

The Executive MBA-style program will focus on the idea of "Human Governance," which, according to the school, helps "individuals bring back the centrality of the human into business dealings, and becoming highly impactful human leaders to drive performance."

To apply for the program, applicants should have at least five years of managerial experience and an honors degree with a CGPA of 3.00 or above, or its equivalent. 

Besides the Universiti Malaya, Putra Business School is the only other AACSB-accredited business school in Malaysia.
