The Accounting Research Institute (ARI) welcomes our guests from Universiti Tenaga Nasional (UNITEN) who made a half day visit to our office today. Our appreciation goes to Hj Mohmad Sukarnor Deris, Dean of the College of Business & Accounting; Deputy Dean (post graduate) Dr Salina; Deputy Dean (student affairs & linkages) Dr Norhayati; Ms Noriza Saad, Head of Finance Department and lecturer, Mr Wan Taufik. Basically, the aim of the visit is to forge strategic collaboration in the areas of : joint research, joint publication, co-organization of conferences and research training. Both parties are working on a memorandum of understanding which could hopefully be finalized and signed by the end of this year. As a university owned and established by TNB, a utility conglomorate, UNITEN's niche research area is in sustainability & renewable energy.
