Same old issue – same old question. Diploma or Matrikulasi.
There are always pros and cons. But I favour Diploma over Matrikulasi and I will tell you why. But you can disagree with me all you want.
With a Diploma, I mean MQA-accredited Diploma, in two and a half years you could already complete and get employed. But don’t waste time. Immediately apply to study a degree program, such as BBA part-time or BBA Executive. I prefer a part-time modular mode with classes on alternate weekends so that you have weekends for study and family or other social activities. And during this time you have got a salary to invest part of it in your continuous education.
Then, in six and a half years after your SPM (2 years full-time Diploma and 4 years part-time BBA) not only you have a degree but also 4 years of solid work experience. Your part-time modular degree will help you to enhance your network with “working” students and, yes, new job opportunities with better pay. And studying a degree with work experience would be more engaging and “make sense” than without experience.
But its your choice – its your life
