Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) would like to congratulate our Young Lecturers Scheme (TPM) PhD scholar, Dr Dewi Tajuddin, for obtaining her PhD from Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) in Human Resource Management. She received her PhD scroll from Tuan Yang Terutama (TYT) Yang Di Pertua Sabah during the UMS 15th Convocation, held on 23 November, 2013.
Dr Dewi started her career as a bank teller with BSN Kota Kinabalu after completing her SPM in 1993. She enrolled off-campus at Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) as a first degree student in 2000. She then studied EMBA at UiTM Sabah in 2005 and obtained her masters degree in 2007.
In late 2009, after working for about 16 years with BSN, she resigned to pursue her PhD degree at UMS. She was offered with the TPM PhD scholarship by Faculty of Business Management, UiTM. She was the only PhD recipient from the School of Business and Economics, UMS that received a certificate of Anugerah Aspirasi Pasca-siswazah UMS on 26 November 2013 for successfully completing her PhD between 3-4 years. Currently, Dr Dewi Tajuddin is a Human Resource senior lecturer at UiTM Sabah.
