It was indeed another milestone for the Accounting Research Institute when it has been chosen by the university to coordinate academic and research programs under the Memorandum of Understanding between Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) and Petroliam Nasional Berhad (Petronas). The event which took place at UiTM's newly launched training centre - Institute of Leadership & Development (ILD) at Bandar Enstek, Nilai Negeri Sembilan, was witnessed by the Minister of Higher Education. YB Dato' Seri Haji Idris bin Jusoh and Tan Sri Dato' Academician Ir Dr Ahmad Zaidee bin Laidin, Chairman of UiTM's Board of Director. Basically, the MoU will involve the participation of six responsibility centres in UiTM: Accounting Research Institute (ARI), Faculty of Accountancy, Faculty of Law, Faculty of Business Management, Faculty of Media Studies and Faculty of Information Management. Whilst ARI will participate in research activities with Petronas's unit of integrity, the faculties will benefit in term of students attachment with Petronas. As a conglomerate organisation, Petronas has huge pool of talents. UiTM can take advantage of this opportunity to appoint them as adjunct professors or industry experts at the university.
