University Of East London Kuala Lumpur

University Of East London Kuala Lumpur, UEL has enjoyed a strong collaborative partnership with the Women’s Institute of Management (WIM) for almost 15 years. 218 students are currently enrolled on UEL’s MBA International Business which is delivered by WIM.

2015 was an exciting year for the partnership. In October, UEL was pleased to welcome Mahathevan Arumugam, who graduated with a UEL MBA from WIM in 2015, to its Docklands Campus in East London. Mahathevan was a member of an international 4 x 4 motor expedition that participated in an arduous 66-day road trip covering 22,000 km. It started in Singapore, headed to the Mount Everest base camp and wove its way through the Himalayas before eventually coming to a halt at the University of East London.

Before the expedition began, a WIM banner with greetings to UEL was presented to the convoy. On arrival, the banner was handed over to UEL at a special ceremony on the lawn at Docklands attended by Vice-Chancellor Professor John Joughin and Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) Nora Ann Colton.
