The Academics

I almost forgot. On Monday, the Institut Kelautan Malaysia or IKMAL council and I played hosts at a luncheon for a group of visiting professors from the graduate school of management, Universiti Industri Selangor or UNISEL at the Malaysian Petroleum Club. They were led by their deputy Vice Chancellor, Prof. Dr. Mohamad Ali Sekak (second from the left in above photo).

The profs were in town to seek ways of collaborating with the Institute for developing their MBA programs in shipping and logistics management and the possibility of offering other subjects in nautical and maritime studies. An MOU between both parties is in the offing.

The university has its new main campus in Batang Berjuntai, Selangor. An interesting tit-bit we noted from our guests was that it seems that HRH the Sultan isn't too happy with the name of the town and wants it changed to Bestari Jaya or BJ instead. Hmmm ... I am in full agreement with HRH.
