"The Graduate Centre supports UKM agenda to retain Research University status"

Writing a PhD is about completing and presenting a structured research, around a certain topic, within a planned period of time. It is about designing a proper research that is achievable and presentable and acceptable to a scholarly community. Examiners examine PhD research according to a certain guideline. On the other hand, PhD research is not about changing the world but about contribution to knowledge. Dreaming is not wrong but dreaming a wrong dream may derail a PhD project. Nobel prize is not planned but accidental, evaluated not purely on scholarly work but based on other criteria. Hence, the talk is about how to achieve a PhD and complete a PhD research, and to remind researchers that they are not achieving a Nobel Prize. None of the Nobel Prize comes from PhD thesis".
Professor Dr. Sufian Jusoh obtains a High Distinction for his multidisciplinary Doctor of Law from University of Bern, Switzerland. The PhD research examines the issue of biotechnology trade from the perspective of law, biotechnology and economics.

Sufian is a Barrister-at-Law (England and Wales) of Lincoln’s Inn, London. Sufian holds an LL.B from Cardiff Law School, an LL.M (Merit), University College London.

Sufian JUSOH is Director, Principal Fellow and Professor of International Trade and Investment at the Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, as well as the Convenor for the ASEAN Integration Grand Challenge at the university. He is an External Fellow of the World Trade Institute, University of Bern, Switzerland, a Distinguished Fellow at the Institute of Diplomacy and Foreign Relations, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Malaysia and a Member of the Pacific Economic Cooperation Council Malaysian Chapter. Sufian is now an International Investment Law Advisor for the World Bank and co-founded the ASEAN Economic Integration Forum. He plays a key role in the reform of the investment laws in Myanmar, Timor Leste, Laos and the Federated States of Micronesia. Sufian has been a consultant to many countries and international organisations such the Asian Development Bank, ASEAN, the World Trade Organisation, the World Intellectual Property Organisation, the United Nations’ Conference on Trade and Development and the United Nations’ Economic Commission for Asia and the Pacific.
