  5. Industry Partnership & Career...

If you want to be successful, It’s just this simple, know what you are doing, Love what you are doing, And believe in what you are doing.
-Will Rogers-


Industry Partnership and Career Development Unit has two separate duties but functions as one in view of developing resources for graduate development. Industry Partnership provides the resources to enable authentic learning by embedding students with the industry as part of their experiential learning. Career Development delves into the myriad of essential skills that are required by employers. Essentially, we agree to the mantra “you are hired because of your degree, but you are appreciated and promoted because of your essential skills.”

Career Development

  • Career Development was established with the aim of providing career development tools and support to the future graduates of IMU. Our goal is to equip and support students as they navigate through their study path on campus.
  • Throughout the students’ path, Career Development offers dedicated career support, to enhance their personal and professional development in order to improve employability. Career Development prepares the students to face the ever-changing graduate job market.

Industry Partnership

  • Industry Partnership seeks advice from the Industry Partners to chart the University direction, aligning to the industry needs and demands in order to produce high quality, sought after graduates.
  • We work closely with industry partners to find innovative solutions to challenges and to bring the real world into the classroom. The Unit’s main objectives are to create mutually beneficial collaborations that will drive sustainable engagement between the university and industrial stakeholders to enrich the three key domains of the University: research, education and healthcare.

Graduate Trainee Programme (GTP)

  • Graduate Trainee Programme is a structured learning and development initiative designed to provide graduates with the skills, knowledge, and experience needed to kick-start their careers.
  • The programme aims to bridge the gap between academic education and practical work experience by offering a combination of classroom training, on-the-job learning, and mentorship opportunities.
