This is on top of her earlier announced target of an increase in postgraduate enrollment of 50% by 2015 as blogged by Kian Ming here.
Universiti Malaya (UM) vice-chancellor Datuk Rafiah Salim has done an analysis of the institution’s strengths and weaknesses.Nothing too juicy in the above statements, but it's an update nevertheless. So we continue to wait and see.
More than a month after taking up the post, Rafiah said that while UM is good in medical science, law and research, the number of international students and academics should be increased.
“However, there is a need to balance this with the development of our own human capital. In raising UM’s ranking, we must be careful not to compromise the national agenda,” said Rafiah.
She added that the university also needed to focus more on the study of Islamic commerce and increase international publications.
