WOU forges partnership with NUBE

Wawasan Open University forged a smart partnership alliance with yet another industry giant through the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding with the National Union of Bank Employees (NUBE) at Menara PGRM, Kuala Lumpur.

Under the agreement with NUBE which aims to provide affordable educational opportunities to those working in the banking industry, WOU will conduct advanced-level training programmes and offer appropriate tertiary education for NUBE staff, members, friends and families.

The agreement also allows for the participation of NUBE in WOU’s Valued Partner Programme (VPP) where group discounts and study grants will be offered to each student registered with the university through the union.

The MoU seeks to facilitate the establishment of exchange programmes with captains of the banking industry through co-operative discussions and forums facilitated by NUBE. WOU will also be able to invite NUBE’s banking industry leaders to present special talks and previews to its students.
