Wawasan Open University (WOU) is one of Malaysia’s foremost, private institutions of higher learning dedicated to adult learners who seek to pursue tertiary qualifications for professional development and self-enrichment.
Established in 2006, it uses flexible approaches to make higher education accessible to all – anytime, anywhere – and to create a lifelong learning community for aspiring individuals regardless of their previous educational, ethnic or socio-economic background. Through its unique open distance learning (ODL) model, self-paced learning and flexible study pathway, WOU enables working adults to pursue their educational dreams without much disruption to their professional and personal commitments.
Nearly 10,000 adult learners in Malaysia have experienced the learning opportunities at WOU, an institution that aims to equip today’s workforce with industry-relevant knowledge and skills through its quality, market-driven programmes, while they continue in their jobs.
To date, WOU offers over 40 programmes ranging from the sub-degree to postgraduate levels in the fields of business, technology, education and liberal studies, including three MBA programmes. WOU produced its first batch of MBA graduates in 2010, and its pioneer batch of Bachelor’s degree students in 2011.
All its programmes are fully approved by the Malaysian Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) and the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA). On top of that, 13 programmes - i.e. CeMBA, CeMPA, as well as 6 business and 5 technology degrees - have received recognition from the Public Service Department (JPA) following the graduation of its inaugural batch of students.
