Academic Governance and Quality Assurance

The SFU is offering courses which were orginally designed and developed by internationally well recognised academic institutions and professional bodies. There are also courses developed in-house which were designed according to the needs of the market and were regularly reviewed by the Academic Board. The Academic Board is formed with the senior lecturers of the SFU and the experts in the subject areas including the leading practitioners of Myanmar enterprises.


Strategy First was officially announced as 'Strategy First University' in March 2019. Strategy First delivers a unique learning experience for Myanmar citizens to study and earn postgraduate degrees, bachelor degrees, diplomas and certificates that are accredited by competitive international partners and respected globally while working in their home country. It offers undergraduate, postgraduate, and professional diploma programmes: for students and working professionals at various stages of life. Each program upholds the same high standard of learning and prepares students to compete on an international level.


Strategy First is rooted in an earnest understanding of the local environment and its existing educational gaps and economic opportunities. Thus, its structure is tailored towards the needs of Myanmar people and its enterprises. Most importantly, it provides students with internationally accredited diplomas and degrees from globally ranked universities with which it has partnered.


Strategy First also engages directly with Myanmar businesses by providing various workshops, corporate trainings, and pertinent programmes such as innovation, creativity and customer relationship marketing. It encourages positive business practices by promoting as well as demonstrating the triple bottom-line principle of people, planet, and profit.


Lastly, Strategy First believes in developing strategic relationships with the government and develop the programmes that benefit the people or less developed states and regions. As such, Strategy First works in collaboration with the Chin State Government to run a Chin State Business university. Similarly , Strategy First manages programmes in Rakhine State in alliance with the Rakhine Government to provide the people of the state with competitive business programmes. These programmes are demonstrative examples of how Strategy First prioritizes people over profit.
