Accreditation & Recognition of MMU Programmes

For Professional Programmes like Engineering and Accountancy, MMU seeks recognition from the respective professional bodies. The relevant professional bodies are as follows:

i) Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM)
ii) Malaysian Association of Certified Public Accountants (MICPA)

Recognition by these Professional Bodies is necessary to enable graduates from the programmes to gain professional recognition. Graduates in possession of an unrecognised degree can not be registered with these Professional Bodies.

MMU has also gained recognition from the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), UK in addition to the MICPA recognition.

Meanwhile, recognition from JPA is necessary to enable graduates to be employed in the Public/Government sector. Without JPA's recognition, graduates can only gain employment in the private sector. In this regard, MMU's programme that has been accredited by LAN shall be forwarded to JPA by LAN itself. The list of programmes submitted by LAN will be considered in the JPA's 'Jawatankuasa Tetap Penilaian dan Pengiktirafan Kelayakan (JTPPK)'' which is the government's committee to decide on granting the recognition.
