Passion for business, entrepreneurship drives Polytechnic graduate to success

23rd March, 2018

By VESTA VANESSA JSOL

KOTA KINABALU: Business and entrepreneurship have always fascinated 24-year-old Roslan Ramlih. To pursue the passion for entrepreneurship, he enrolled himself in the Diploma in Business Studies at Polytechnic Kota Kinabalu.

That was years ago. Yesterday, the Kuala Penyu-born Best Student Award receiver joined his peers in a convocation ceremony where graduates received their certificates and diplomas from Kota Kinabalu Polytechnic Industrial Advisory Committee (IAC) Chairman, Datuk Ag Buhtamam Ag Mahmun.

With a CGPA of 3.82, he also bagged himself two other awards namely, the Academic and Co-curriculum Excellence Award (Anugerah Kecemerlangan Akademik dan Kokurikulum) and the Polytechnic Director Award (Anugerah Pengarah Politeknik).

“Nowadays, the business sector offers tremendous amount of potentials. It will never stop because the demands for goods and services will never stop,” Roslan told reporters at the convocation. It was his ambition, passion and potentials that motivated him to want to learn more about business, entrepreneurship and finance.

“My dream is to run my own business empire someday,” said the only child to Ramlih Jaslin and his homemaker wife Siti Aminah Sahiyal who was with him at the convocation.

Aside from the pursuit of his interest, Roslan opted to study in Polytechnic because of its track records of having produced many quality graduates over the years.

“I am very thankful to all the people who have helped me to achieve this. My parents, lecturers and friends are my sources of inspiration. Apart from learning the theoretical knowledge from them, their sharing about their real life professional practices had a great impact on me.

Earlier, Kota Kinabalu Polytechnic Director, Zainab Othman said that graduates from the polytechnics are highly employable because they took courses that are highly demanded in the industry.

Yesterday was the second and final day of the convocation. The first day was graced by Sabah Head of State, Tun Juhar Mahiruddin.

Speaking to reporters at a press conference, Buhtamam said that innovation is a new global benchmark which requires not only the ability to create but also serve as the catalyst for the nation’s transformation.

He added that among the challenges faced in gearing towards achieving a developed and high-income nation status is creating a scientific, progressive and innovative community.

He is confident that Polytechnic will not only stimulate the creation of innovative students but also function as a platform to increase public awareness on innovation.
