Here are the answers to some of the frequently asked questions.
FBESD refers to “Fakulti Perniagaan, Ekonomi dan Pembangunan Sosial” (English: Faculty of Business, Economics and Social Development) at UMT. After the restructuring exercise throughout UMT effective from 1 August 2019, the two schools, formerly known as School of Maritime Business and Management and School of Social Development and Economics were merged into one faculty currently known as FBESD.
The school offers academic programmes (both undergraduate and postgraduate) in mainstream business fields, such as accounting, management, marketing and finance. In line with the niche area of UMT, the school also offers economics, policy and social environment and counselling. Prospective undergraduate students can refer to the (STUDY > Undergraduate) link above for more details of each course. For future research (PhD and MSc) students, contact your potential supervisors according to their research expertise.

To get there, students or visitors should turn left (after entering the main UMT entrance) until reaching a T junction. Take the left exit and turn right when reaching the students’ car park.
