Azman Hashim International Business School (AHIBS) recently hosted a virtual event to launch its newest academic programme, MSc. Food Processing and Innovation (Foodi) by featuring speakers from the food innovation sector.
The academic programme was developed under the framework of Erasmus+ Capacity Building for Higher Education grant. The programme includes both technical (engineering, science, nutrition, health) and business (entrepreneurial/intrapreneurial, design thinking, business strategy) aspects. The essence of innovation is embedded across all courses and within its Master capstone project – MIDAS.
The virtual launch was held on 18 July 2021 and had invited three speakers from McDonald’s Malaysia, Coca Cola Malaysia and the Counsellor of Agriculture from the Embassy of Malaysia (The Hague). The session included a slot explaining the project background and programme structure by the project leader, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Rosmini Omar.
The Foodi programme is jointly owned and run by AHIBS and the Faculty of Engineering, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia. The multi-disciplinary perspective ensures the programme tackles important issues that concern the whole supply chain in the food and agriculture sectors.
The programme now opens for applications for September 2021 intake. More information can be found at https://business.utm.my/mscfoodi/.
