MARA will continue to support young entrepreneurs who are graduates from institutions of higher education under MARA to continue to grow and become successful entrepreneurs.
Minister of Rural and Regional Development, Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said, even though they were given financial assistance, the graduates will continue to be guided until they are fully independent.
“Besides providing financial assistance, MARA will continue extending support and constant training, as well as advisory services.
“We will not leave the graduates unaided after graduation because they are very capable, creative and productive,” he said during the opening ceremony of UniKL Business School at the campus premises in Jalan Gurney this morning.
He said, during a visit to review products by UNIKL students, he found that the products are world-class, are in a league of its own and have great potentials to go far.
“I understand that some of these products have already entered the open market such as hypermarkets and have been exported abroad.
“This is a remarkable achievement, and thus they should continue to be guided to be more successful in the business world,” he said.
Ismail Sabri further added, even though not all of the UNIKL Business School graduates will become entrepreneurs, MARA is hopes that all of them will become business leaders, industry experts and professionals.
“It does not matter whether to the organisations they are working for, or to their own businesses, but they must be able to make a significant impact,” he explained.
