This faculty was established simultaneously with the establishment of USIM which started its academic year 2000/2001. Initially, it is known by the name of the Faculty of Dakwah and Islamic Management. Given the development of the program of study which now covers various fields of study such as Counseling, Communication and the new media, the name of the Faculty of Dakwah and Islamic Management has been changed to the Faculty of Leadership and Management
The establishment of the Faculty of Leadership and Management is based on the belief and the sense of responsibility that Islamic-based studies need to be developed and integrated with the current stream of thought and cultural knowledge for universal benefit. Hence, all the current programs of study – The Dakwah and Islamic Management, Communication, Counseling, Akidah and Religion Studies and New Media are developed through the integration of naqli and aqli cores that coincide with the Shari’ah. The programs of study are designed to meet the needs of the industry and other stakeholders.
Hence the learning activities in the faculty are not limited to understanding theoretical but applied in the organization or in society. To achieve this mission, the faculty is equipped with various facilities including counseling laboratories, radio studios, TV studios, editing rooms, recording cameras and public speeches.
Faculty of Leadership and Management offers 5 Undergraduate Programs, 6 Master’s Degree Programs, 1 Postgraduate Diploma Program and 4 Phd Programs.
