General questions

    Dear Expert Admin,

    Appreciate your resources in this forum and website.
    I am Malaysian.
    I would like to ask, whether the Open University Malaysia was worthwhile to study?
    Would it recognized in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore?
    I had financial restriction to further study (I am not eligible to apply scholarship offered as it was required full-time commitment on further study), that is why I choose the cheap and easy to access (fully online DBA from OUM)

    Looking forward on your reply.

    Thank you.

    Best regard,

      Hi Max,

      the key questions are what you mean with "recognized" and what goals you wish to achieve by doing this. If you clarify this you can start investigating.

      For instance, a goal could be to become a recognized researcher who receives a serious education that prepares you for publication in top journals. Or a goal could be that your employer or target employer offers you a position with the DBA degree. Or a goal couldbe that you wish to be able to add a "Dr." to your name.

      All of these are different goals that require different pursues. Please have a look at our 3-pages Guide "How to find the right DBA" that should help you out.

      Best wishes,
