Adjunct Professor from MACC
ARI wishes to welcome Y. Bhg. Dato' Sri Abu Kassim Mohamed, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Chief Commissioner, as a newly appointed Adjunct Professor for the Accounting Research Institute and the Faculty of Accountancy, Universiti Teknologi MARA in Shah Alam. ARI hopes that this appointment will bring closer the two institutions: UiTM and MACC. In its effort to enhance research in financial criminology, ARI hopes to work closely with MACC and other enforcement agencies in this country. Our collaboration started way back in 2002 when UiTM and MACC (then known as the Anti Corruption Agency or ACA) organized several cohorts of CPD training in Forensic Accounting. One of our senior professors, Prof Dr Syed Noh Syed Ahmad is also a member of MACC's Operations Evaluation Panel (PPO).
