Hello precious readers! For this entry I will share with all of you about the subjects that I take for this semester. I'm taking 7 subjects including co-curriculum that is English for Academic Purpose (BEL 311), Macroeconomics (ECO 211), Asas Ekonomi Islam (CTU 241), Introduction to Statistics (QMT 216), Fundamentals of Finance (FIN 262), Mandarin Language (BMD 101) and for co-curriculum I’m taking net ball.

My lecturer for BMD 101 is Mr Lim but I called him Lim loushi. I am quite excited taking this subject because I really want to learn how to speak mandarin. Besides that, by learning this subject, I think it can give some benefit for my future if I want to find jobs in Chinese department. Also, I’m learning this subject for two semesters that is this semester and next semester.

For QMT 216, my lecturer is Assoc. Prof Ruhana Zainuddin. This subject is to provide students majoring in business management, banking, investment, accounting, marketing, finance and other field of business administration with an introductory survey of many applications of statistics. It also would prepare students to do advanced statistical courses and to do subjects that are related to statistical technique. So, I will be able to analyze data and make conclusions based on statistical analysis, understand the important of sampling and data collection and also be able to use some statistical software and to interpret statistical output result after learn this subject in this semester.

CTU 241, my lecturer is Ustaz Kamarulzaman Sulaiman. This subject is CTU 241 is more to economic in Islam. It is also about how to use and manage the economics resources for the betterment of one self and others both materially and spiritually in order to achieve the blessing of Allah and how to manage economics with Islamic philosophic.

For BEL 311, my lecturer is Mr Izuan Ismail. BEL 311 in the third semester, we learn about writing skills. We must know how to write a proper essay. With all the assignments from Mr Izuan, it taught me how to improve my writing and at the same time, I can also improve my English.

Mrs Zarina is my lecturer for ECO 211. Macroeconomics looks at the economy from broader perspective by considering its overall performance and the way the various sectors of the economy relate to one other. In macroeconomics, I learn how to calculate the national income and also learn about inflation or deflation. To me, this subject is quite hard but I will try my best to score for this subject.

Lastly is FIN 262. My lecturer is Mrs Wan Asma Hanim Wan Mustapha. Finance? Finance is more to calculation and accounting. I hate accounts. I thought finance is a tough subject because it is 4 credit hour subject. But, I am quite glad because I can understand and solve the problems easily.
