Dr. Rosmini Omar, an Associate Professor at AHIBS, has been selected as the new Dean of Azman Hashim
International Business School (AHIBS) starting August 1st, 2021. Dr. Rosmini joined AHIBS in 2007 (previously, the International Business School), and has served as the Deputy Dean of Research and Innovation across three terms. During her administrative tenure, she established the School’s inaugural journal and other platforms that featured industry and academic experts.


Dr. Rosmini is a strong contributor particularly in consultancy and international grants to UTM. Her earlier projects have involved local and international clients from the public and private sectors. She later embarked on international grants, to date having led three Erasmus projects worth almost RM15 million comprising of consortium members from various countries.


With her leadership experience, scholarly work, and professional expertise, Dr. Rosmini is particularly well-positioned to lead AHIBS, including initiatives that unite researchers, students, community, and industry leaders to advance work that shapes business and society.

Dr. Rosmini succeeds the previous Dean, Professor Dr. Nur Naha Abu Mansor. Under Prof. Dr. Nur Naha’s
leadership, AHIBS has substantially increased its portfolio, setting the stage for the next phase in our evolution as a leading business school.
