About

This Information Technology Entrepreneurship is a joint venture program implemented on a Full-time and Part-time basis, which are initiated by the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) with Majlis Amanah Rakyat (MARA) and International Business School (IBS) respectively. Its main objective is to produce IT entrepreneurs (IT Technopreneurs) at the postgraduate level. 

Overview

Technopreneurs are needed to complete 40 credits before graduation where 12 credits are dedicated to completing an IT-based product development project. 

For full-time students, three series of Entrepreneurship Modules (Latihan Pembentukan Usahawan- LPU Series 1, 2 & 3) are offered by MARA to technopreneurs within the duration of their studies, which are normally scheduled during semester breaks. These modules are part of the requirement for graduation as required by MARA as the sponsor. 

Learning outcomes

As for the part-time Information Technology Entrepreneurship students at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, several compulsory workshops that are organized are carried out throughout the programme and must be attended by part-time students.Besides the normal class lectures, this program also adopts a Teaching Factory concept where technopreneurs have to undergo extensive practical exposure to enhance their business as well as their entrepreneurial skills. Industrial involvement is eminent to the success of this program, thus, technopreneurs will be engaged to industrial or business mentors through the Mentoring & Coaching concept introduced. To further equip the technopreneurs to become more competent, innovative, versatile, and possess ethical entrepreneurial values, they will be exposed to various kinds of external entrepreneurial programs such as seminars, series of short courses, business discourse, workshops, business forums & networking, business competitions, business visits etc.
