Strengthening self-esteem, unity, and patriotism in line with the National Aspiration are among the objectives that must achieve in UPM's effort to develop the character of competitive graduates in facing the challenges ahead. Involvement of students in activities that lead to the construction of a versatile and resilient nature in meeting the challenges ahead.
Character building encompasses the values of patriotism, unity and noble values that lead to the ability of students to express a balanced human personality physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually and have a sense of belonging and loyalty to the country. The student programmes and activities are designed and organised to unify racial and religious diversity. The consolidation displayed by the group of students is plurally demonstrated through their relationship, inculcating the values of mutual respect and love that lead to social or community cohesion.
Developing Holistic Graduate Character and Potential, especially in entrepreneurship, volunteerism, leadership, organisational communication, emotional well-being, physical health and soft skills, are also initiatives to develop the character of competitive graduates in facing the challenges ahead.
The entrepreneurship initiative through PUTRAPRENEUR® is focusing on moving a big idea of entrepreneurship by empowering the construction of an integrated entrepreneurial ecosystem, which can shift the students' minds from job seekers to job creators. This effort will indirectly enhance quality human capital, have high entrepreneurial attributes and values, and thus contribute to the marketability of UPM graduates.
