A Word from the Founder
Words from Datuk Eric Chong
Education is the most precious thing that a child can be given. Education defines a person – who she is going to be, what she is going to be like and how she is going to live her life. Therefore, tertiary education, the final phase of formal education, plays the most critical role. This is where young people are given their final preparation for the adult world – one is full of opportunities but also full of many challenges.
It is with this understanding in mind that we at Erican College endeavour to offer tertiary education that is inspiring, practical and results-driven. Our mission is very simple – to churn out graduates who are sought-after, capable, creative and ambitious. We want to ensure that our graduates are the absolute bests in their chosen fields. To accomplish this, we collaborate with reputable universities from around the world to offer our students solid international pathways. We also work with employers, both locally as well as overseas, to ensure that our students have access to solid, quality employment opportunities upon graduation.
Most significantly, we have pioneered a success-themed tertiary concept, the first of its kind in Asia. We have developed a comprehensive programme with a duration of 2 years – called the Erican Success Programme. This programme is compulsory for all Erican students, regardless of the disciplines they are currently pursuing. Our rationale is simple – success qualities and strategies are universal. Sound technical knowledge and insights within an industry coupled with sound success strategies and wisdom are the winning formula for our career-minded graduates.
I sincerely hope that you will choose to embark on this exciting academic journey with Erican College. We are excited to be able to play our role in helping you to achieve whatever it is you set your mind to achieve.
Yes, you can!
