The Permata Dunia Returns continued with a sharing session by Mr. Vijay Anand Siva Subramaniam, Executive Creative Director – EMEA & Global Creative Operations, Vayner Media, London. Mr. Vijay, who graduated in 2001 from the Faculty of Creative Multimedia (FCM), shared his insights on an interesting topic titled “Can Malaysian Creatives Go Global” to 80 students at the MMU Cinema on 1 February 2024.

The session benefited the students by gaining insights on how to become an international designer in advertising and its importance for the creative industry. Jointly organised by the Centre for Alumni (CfA), Career Connect & FCM, the presence of Assoc. Prof. Dr. Ong Jeen Wei, Director of Alumni, Career and Entrepreneurship Development (ACED) and Dr. Sharifah Nurleyana Wafa, Deputy Dean of FCM elevated the significance of the session.

Prior to this session, three Permata Dunia from FCM returned to their alma mater to conduct a sharing session titled “Thriving in Creativity: Navigating the Balance between Passion and Practically in Your Career Journey” on 30 January 2024. They were Ms. Melor Hidayah Mokhtar (2004), an artist coach based in New York, Mr. Mohd Fairuz Sulaiman (2005), a visual artist for Sekolah Main Wayang and Ms. Nazura Zahian Rahime (2002), Executive Producer of Manggis Group.
