Malaysian Skills Diploma (MSD)
University is not for everyone but every student should have a career. Living in a society that places a high value on the MEAL (medicine, engineer, accountant & lawyer) professions and while-collar jobs and still looks down on blue-collar work, can be tough for someone considering Malaysian Skills Diploma program. But here are some good reasons why you should consider Malaysian Skills Diploma.
