Multimedia University Student is SAS Malaysian ‘Student Ambassador’

26-year old Somaye Gharibvan will be representing Malaysia at the upcoming SAS Global Forum in Seattle, Washington from April 11th to 14th.

The second year Masters of Business Administration (MBA) student is amongst just nine (9) other student ambassadors selected from a global basis, as SAS Student Ambassador from their respective countries, to present their research thesis on Analytics at the yearly SAS Global Forum.

Dr Wan Fadzilah, Dean, Faculty of Management says, “The mature teaching infrastructure of MMU as a private tertiary institution has contributed to the success where students have good access to excellent business-IT applications and learning facilities. We are very proud of Somaye for her success in the stiff competition to be a SAS Student Ambassador.”

Tan Siew Ling, Academic Program Manager of SAS Malaysia says, “Actually this is a significant 3-party achievement - for Somaye, MMU and SAS Malaysia, as Somaye’s win distinguished her from the 41 other participants worldwide.”

“It has been an SAS annual tradition for the past 35 years that only 10 students are chosen to present their research thesis at the yearly SAS Global Forum. This program recognizes students’ research leveraging SAS Business Analytics technologies in some of the most innovative ways that can benefit various commercial industries, as well as in the areas of Research and Development.”
