What is the advantage of Executive Diploma Programme compared to mainstream diploma programme offered by UTMSPACE?
About 30% credit exemptions will be given compared to none for mainstream diploma (based on 3 years of working experience). Automatically the study period becomes shorter.
The course fees differ from one programme to the other. However, they are much lower than the fees for mainstream diploma programme (in the range of RM 8,000 –RM15,000 for the whole course).
This programme is suitable for those who are highly motivated to study but cannot join the mainstream diploma due to strict entry requirements. The entry requirement for Executive Diploma is more relaxed. However, having work experience is a course requirement.

Are these programmes accredited by MQA? I was informed that a diploma should have MQA accreditation if I want to use it for furthering study at postgraduate level at Higher Learning Institutions (IPT) or job application at government agencies.
If you are interested in diploma programmes accredited by MQA, we suggest that you join the mainstream diploma programme offered by UTMSPACE, either on full-time or part-time basis. All the programmes are fully accredited by MQA.
However, UTMSPACE is aware that MQA accreditation is important to ensure the quality of the programmes is at the highest level. Therefore, since 2010 UTMSPACE has taken the steps to acquire MQA accreditation for all programmes offered by UTMSPACE. With the accreditation, the Executive Diplomas received can be used for furthering studies or job application at government sectors.
