SHAH ALAM: Current postgraduate studies at Management and Science University (MSU) are crafted to cultivate leadership and a real research contribution that addresses industrial hands-on challenges at the highest management level.

Due to the tremendous and continuous changes within business and management communities, top management must adapt rapidly to stay competitive, relevant and strategically positioned to tackle global trends by possessing the relevant postgraduate qualifications.

In striving to produce top level postgraduate students, research at MSU is applied, collaborative and multidisciplinary, while cultivation of engagement with communities and industries remains a top priority.

To pursue the goal of transforming lives and enriching the future through research culture, several internal grants were introduced, including MSU Seed Grant (MSG), MSU Translational Grant (MTG) and MSU Publication and Conference Grant (MPCG).

Apart from MSU initiatives, there are also other external research grants both international and national, as well industry-related grants that are available to postgraduate research at MSU.
