Foundation in Business (FIB) Scholarships in Malaysia

1) What is Foundation in Business?

Foundation in Business (FIB) focuses on business-related topics that are related to various majors in Business. Most FIB courses are about 12 months long and you can enter this programme right after completing your SPM / O-Level.

FIB helps to prepare you so that you can move on quickly and smoothly into a Business-related degree at the same university. FIB programmes are typically graded based on a combination of coursework and final exams.

Besides that, FIB is one of the quickest paths to enter a Business-related degree and is most suited for students who are sure that they want a Business degree in the future.

2) What You Need To Know About FIB Scholarships

  • Most universities offer generous scholarships for FIB courses
  • Most scholarships are merit-based which don’t require interviews
  • Some even offer tuition fee waiver for both Foundation & Degree with your SPM results
