PM Kicks Off BBA Program

Prime Minister Hun Sen launched Regent College’s bach­e­lor of business administration program Monday morning, calling it “a precious contribution” to the nation’s development.

The ceremony at the Hotel Inter-Continental featured demo­n­strations of the program’s CD ROM and Internet-based curriculum, which the Phnom Penh college will conduct in partnership with Univ­ersiti Tun Abdul Ra­zak, a private university in Malaysia.

Hun Sen said the program will contribute to Cambodia’s human resource training, which he called “a field of vital importance” to the country.

The four-year program is Cam­bodia’s first internationally-recognized English-language business administration degree program, according to Regent College director Neil McLaren.

Also Monday, McLaren an­nounced a three-year scholarship program named in honor of  the prime minister and funded by the college.

McLaren said half of the approximately 25 students who have so far been accepted are being financially sponsored by NGOs or international companies. Courses are scheduled to begin in April.
