ARI Researchers for ERASMUS+ Program
The Accounting Research Institute (ARI) congratulates its two researchers - Research Fellow, Associate Professor Dr Faizah Darus and Research Associate, Associate Professor Dr Haslinda Yusuf who have been selected to participate in the joint Erasmus+ Staff Mobility program between Burgas Free University, Bulgaria and Universiti Teknologi MARA. In 2013, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed by the two universities. Among the programs agreed by both universities were staff exchange and research collaboration. Earlier in May 2016, three researchers from Burgas Free University - Professor Baltov, Professor Kotseva and Professor Anastassova came to Universiti Teknologi MARA for one week and were assigned respectively to the Arshad Ayub Business School, Faculty of Media Studies and Faculty of Hotel Management and Tourism. The dean of the Faculty of Hotel Management, Dr Mohammed Hemdi was the first lecturer/researcher from UiTM being sent to Bulgaria for this program in May 2016. Whilst in Burgas Free University, Dr Faizah and Dr Haslinda will be teaching both financial reporting and sustainability reporting to the students there. Both will also be pursuing possible research collaboration with researchers in Bulgaria. Current research interest of both Associate Professor Dr Faizah and Associate Professor Dr Haslinda is in the area of Sustainability Reporting. Dr Faizah is also currently leading a research cluster in Corporate Waqaf Sustainability and Governance under ARI HICoE's niche in Islamic Financial Criminology. For this visit, both researchers are fully sponsored by the Erasmus+ program. Congratulations to both of you.
