Message From Chief Operating Officer
Chief Operating Officer &
"I believe that it is important to send out a message and ensure the next generation of people know what business is and find it enjoyable. This is one of the most important reasons why I decided to set up Laksamana College of Business." Pehin Orang Kaya Ratna Hapidz Setia Dato Setia Hj Awang Abdul Hapidz bin Pehin Orang Kaya Laksamana Hj Awang Abdul Razak Business Icon 2011.
Laksamana College was founded in 2003 to provide the next generation of Bruneians with training and exposure to the world of business. Today, as the government is calling for diversification due to the oil price, the mandate of training the next generation of entrepreneurs has never been more urgent and significant. How has Laksamana College responded to this?
As YB Pehin Hapidz stated in his founding statement, since our inception, developing entrepreneurs has always been the core of our existence. At Laksamana College, we encourage students to not only consider careers with the government. We constantly challenge students to identify opportunities; to ask the question about what the market needs; and the find solutions that will fill the gaps. Regarding this, we are actively engaged with the business community through BBBF (British Brunei Business Forum) in trying to establish dialogues; and conducting sessions on our premises to share the latest practical and market knowledge with our students.
