Entrepreneurship has become a crucial factor in the development and well-being of societies.
The School takes pride in grooming business graduates who can create social value through their business activities, looking beyond profit margins and emphasing on the value of contributing to the community. We cultivate purposeful business leaders who possess a different mindset and understanding of business.
We believe that purposeful leaders should have a holistic view of the company and see beyond the organisational divisions and hierarchy. Transformation can only take place when students are able to see the 'big picture' view of the organisation and business landscape as a whole.
As such, we provide many opportunities for students to be immersed in situations where they are challenged to see from an owner's perspective and subsequently make decisions from an owner's stand point.

Our Industry Advisory Panel (IAP) works closely with Taylor's Business School (TBS) to ensure that the programmes offered are relevant to the current industry practices and requirements. Seminars that feature expert speakers are organized by the panel to help impart insights and industry trends to students. The IAP also assists in providing students with the opportunity for internships, with the support of the Taylor's Career Service Centre.
Below are some of our top employers in partnership with TBS for internship:
Students purchase fresh vegetables, fruits, and flowers from the farms of Cameron Highlands and sell them on campus. The profits are then donated back to the local farmers to help the local communities and gain exposure to business enterprise through real business experiences.
Our students are encouraged to use their business acumen to address social issues and develop business solutions to improve the quality of life of affected communities.
Our students have consistently been involved in real-life business presentations and pitches, where they have gone on to clinch numerous awards and gain national and international recognition.
These opportunities put their knowledge and skills to the test, and add to the repository of experiences that prepare them for business.
