Student Testimonials
Executive Master in Business Administration (Retailing)
I work in the human resource and training department of SOGO and have 26 years of experience in the retail
industry. I never thought that I would go back to being a student, especially since I am now already in my
forties. My experience at IPD-OUM has taught me to think positively and given me the confidence to interact
with people at all levels. It is a challenging path but it has improved every facet of my life. My classmates,
the curriculum of the programme and the professionalism of the staff have made my student experience
well worth the investment. My career will definitely benefit from all that I have learnt.
Professional Diploma in Counselling Psychology
Taking up this programme felt like a pathfinder for me. I knew my interest but I was not certain of the nature
of this field and whether it was truly meant for me. I found this course online but still felt uncertain until an
old friend contacted me out of the blue and said that she has enrolled in an IPD-OUM programme. My
experience was eye-opening, as I learnt in a respectful and fun environment, with individuals from all walks
of life, making it all the more inspiring. My lectures were excellent and thoroughly enjoyable, as most of the
lecturers were professionals. Through this programme, I got to experience the theoretical and practical
aspects of the field of counselling psychology. I appreciate the fact that what I learned was very hands-on
and the contents were of high quality.
Industrial Executive Diploma in Occupational Safety and Health
I was once a leading steward with Malaysia Airlines and now I am a full-time safety officer. I had been
working for four years in the safety and health industry when I decided to take up this programme. It has
provided me with solid knowledge on safety measures for workers, which I need as I am in the construction
sector. I now also know about chemical safety and I am able to detect chemical hazards that might arise from
construction work. Another subject which has benefited me tremendously in this course is ergonomics. This
course has opened my eyes and broadened my horizons immensely.
Executive Diploma in Preventive Health and Nutrition
I have known about the Executive Diploma in Preventive Health & Nutrition, for a few years but I did not think
it would be beneficial to attend such a course as I thought it would be like those commercial courses that
other organisations conducted. However, my perspective changed when I met two graduates from the course.
One of them, who was in his 50s, had lost weight, and become fit and healthy. The other, a farmer in his late
50s, was able to give a health talk with correct facts and knowledge. I was very impressed and decided to
register for the course. It proved to be a wise move. I have learnt a lot about nutrition and health, subjects that were not taught in my
university years. I started the course in September 2012. Applying my newly acquired knowledge, I started to lose about 7kg since
January 2013. I felt lighter, livelier and more alert. I strongly encourage everyone to attend this course as it is the first step towards taking
charge of your health, and helping others to become healthier.
Postgraduate Diploma in Enterprise Resource Planning
Most SAP courses are rather expensive. With limited resources, I found it hard to find one that gave me the
knowledge I wanted at an acceptable cost within my budget. Then I discovered the “Postgraduate Diploma
in Enterprise Resource Planning” course by IPD-OUM. The course duration is ten months and it contains
important modules for entrance into the SAP working career. The materials are easy to understand and the
course was taught in a systematic way using simple and direct language.
Executive Diploma in Building and Facilities Management
The decision to continue my education in Building and Facilities Management at IPD-OUM has benefited me
in many ways. The management techniques I learnt have assisted me to manage buildings and facilities,
polish my communication skills more effectively, and improve my professionalism at the workplace.
I would strongly encourage and recommend anyone who wishes to improve or widen their horizons and
career opportunities to study at IPD-OUM.
