This paper reviews the application of a unique combination of distance education methodologies by
MUCIA Global Education Group, Inc and the American Degree Program at PPP/ITM in order to
alleviate critical deficiencies in human resources and curricular content found at the latter. The
introduction describes the growing crisis in higher education in Malaysia, in particular, the dilemma of
addressing increasing enrollments with limited resources. The paper then reviews the decade of
cooperation between MUCIA and ADP PPP/ITM that eventually led to the application of distance
education methods and practices. Finally, the paper reviews the MUCIA Global/ADP program by
examining each of its components and assessing its strengths and weaknesses as well as those of the
program as a whole.
