ALOR SETAR: Albukhary International University encourages its students to start running a social business.
Vice Chancellor of Albukhary International University, Emeritus Professor Dato’ Dr. Abd Aziz Tajuddin, said, our hope is that when they hear or see the term “social business,” they will immediately think of Albukhary International University.
He also pointed out that the four impactful social businesses founded by AIU students (Plasti-go, AIU Alive Shop, Therapy Lab, and Po-stitch) have competed in numerous competitions and been recognized for their usefulness by a wide range of people.
“We give our students opportunities for practical involvement, not just studying in class, but also working with lecturers and staff to improve their creativity and awareness as agents of change,” he added
AIU is committed to ensuring human dignity through its vision, mission, and core values, in keeping with the University’s core ethos and tagline of “Inspiring Minds”.
This is what distinguishes Albukhary International University from others. They are on a mission to serve humanity through social business in a newly established learning environment.
A place where students can learn about social business and start their own so that they can help more people in their community.
AIU believed that by embracing the 5A core values, practicing the 8-hour Rule, and embracing the 3-zero concepts, their students would be able to achieve a better study-life balance and explore themselves more.
