On the 11th and 12th of December 2017, School of Business Management (SBM) organized its 1st Research, Innovation and Commercialization Exhibition (RICE 2017). The exhibition which had 107 group participants provided opportunity to all SBM students to showcase and share their knowledge, creativity and innovation through presentation of different ideas, products and services.
During the opening speech, the Dean of SBM, Prof Dr. Haim Hilman Abdullah emphasized that the exhibition is in line with the transformation agenda of the school which intends to ensure that the students take up challenges of starting and doing their businesses while they are still running their programs as this would prepare them to face the real business world after graduation. In his opening address, the Dean also admonished the students to be courageous, and have the right attitude as this would determine their altitude.
