Business Programs

 

The Tony Fernandes School of Business (formerly known as the College of Management) was established in 2003 and has consistently been one of the largest schools in The University of Cambodia. In its more than ten years of developing the capacity of each student, many reputable private local and international companies have employed our students and given very encouraging, most positive feedback about their caliber. This reflects the fact that our output has been trained with a well-balanced curriculum that contributes to their robust soft and hard skills: employers have been very enthusiastic about our studentsí diverse skills and their dynamic behavior. Achieving the latter has been augmented by linkages to the private and public sectors, in order to give our students exposure to experiences outside the classroom, for them to better grasp the realities of life.

Arising out of this, the Tony Fernandes School of Business has a threefold mission:

1.      to educate and train high-quality individuals to become ethical leaders and entrepreneurs;

2.      to act as a focal point for developing the capacity, creativity, innovative mindset and adaptability to the fast-changing technology of Cambodiaís human resources; and

3.      to conduct relevant and critical research so as to advance knowledge, by using strong conceptual foundations to identify and solve management problems focusing on national, regional, and global issues.

To this end, the Tony Fernandes School of Business offers graduate students the opportunity to develop in-depth knowledge and insights into their selected area of specialization, through training in useful analytical and quantitative skills relevant to their interests and career objectives.
