The idea of introducing an academic journal to facilitate
the exchange of ideas among academia was first mooted
by the current Chief Editor, Dr. Ha Huong, during her
short working holiday period at TMC in December 2005.
Subsequently, TMC Academic Journal was introduced in
December 2005, thanks to the efforts of Dr. Kuppuswamy
Ranganathan and his colleagues at TMC Business School.
Dr. Ranganathan also worked closely with Dr. Ha at the
initial stage to develop the guidelines/instructions
for submission to the journal. The journal provides
opportunities for TMC staff members, academia and practitioners
to publish their original and unpublished research works
and to exchange ideas and experiences in teaching and
doing research. The dissemination of research output
will help TMC leverage off its reputation for quality,
professionalism, research and development which can
contribute to justifying its leadership role in the
private education industry.
