PKP believes that the alternative modes offered by UKM will benefit both local working executives and the international student community, contributing towards the development of a more professional and skilled workforce besides helping to fulfill the country's ambition of becoming a regional hub for education. Increasing interest from employers to allow their staff to go for after office hours' higher education and professional enhancement also significantly enhances the role of PKP.

PKP will always ensure that the development aspect of its Executive programme has a high academic value besides fulfilling corporate requirements. There cannot be a compromise between academic quality and commercial pressure. PKP makes no promise that every Executive student will pass. But once our students have successfully gone through the ups and downs of juggling family commitment, work assignments and final examinations, and finally put on their convocation robe and mortar board, they would normally come back to us asking for another two or three years of challenging but satisfying leading-to-degree training experience.

Our Controlled Programmes are aimed at harnessing the academic strength of UKM in developing the curriculum of the Diploma programmes for the participating PIHL. UKM monitors the programmes to ensure stipulated standards are followed. These programmes are Diploma in Information Technology - Kolej Teknologi Mulia, Taiping; Diploma in Information Technology - Kolej SAL, KL, Subang, Johor Bharu; and Diploma in Technology - Kolej Teknologi Bestari, Terengganu.

Students are conferred diploma upon graduation from the respective PIHL. Those who excel are considered for further advancement through the various programmes conducted at PKP.

Short And Specialised Courses
The need for adult education is validated and magnified by call and motivation for lifelong learning by the government of Malaysia as well as leaders at various levels. Holders of second degrees by majority realise the significant career advantage they will have over their colleagues with only first degrees or diplomas. Compared to its competitors, PKP carries more weight with academic programmes from the very highly-accredited UKM as its main product. It is thus of great importance to uphold the image of UKM by conducting the Executive programmes efficiently and effectively. The smooth channelling out of unquestionably locally-accredited and widely accepted academic programmes in a manner that justifies the amount of money and time invested attribute long-term value to participants in these programmes.
