The Ansted University Publication arms is a one-stop solution for all higher learning resources that we are in the business of providing professional services & solutions to Engineering and Business Management Institutes  the areas of textbook publishing, e-book development, content development, branding of institute, customized training & development programmes, etc.

Editing, Instructional Design Proofreading, design, DTP, printing and binding thus leading to timely delivery.

Also many of our university faculty members and alumni papers were published their books through our associate publishers in various countries. We follow the policy of symbiotic co-existence and always endeavor to benefit from collaborative efforts.

As of today more than 1000 titles in Business & Management as well as Engineering subject over 1000 different types of SLM on different subject had already been brought out. A good range of high-quality titles is underway while a long list of titles is in the commissioned stage to serve our students and teaching community better, upholding high standards in content development together with our associates. These books have met with an overwhelming response that continues unabated.

Ansted publication unit has a network of over 1000 faculties teaching in various Universities located in different parts of the world.

Through this process, we are able to tie ups with various recognized and accredited institutions for promoting dual degree programme via Consortium University Board. The University Consortium has a number of UNESCO listed Universities, which will evaluated the work completed for your University degree and issue a degree based on it. These can be at Bachelor, Master and Doctorate level depending on the level of your non accredited or non recognised University degree qualifications.

THE PURPOSE OF THE DUAL DEGREE PROGRAM is to allow fully qualified individuals applying via Ansted University to upgrade and improve their academic standing from the present to receive a fully accredited degree based on the rules and regulations pertaining to the Dual Degree Programme. Applicants who are applying as independent individuals from other institutions are most welcome. The same applies to academic institutions which are considering cooperation with the Ansted University using the Dual Degree Programme for suitable degrees where they have limited programmes or degree granting restrictions. Therefore the Dual Degree Programme is offering a means for them to cover all levels and many more programs thus allowing them to provide greater learning opportunity to their students.


Business Administration, Biology, Life Science, Accountancy, Finance, Human Resources, International Business, Education, Humanities, Arts, Counseling, Literature, Philosophy, Politics, Education Management, Psychology, Behavioral Science, Social Science, Anthropology, Economics, Sociology, Communication Studies, Philosophy in many fields of endeavor such as theology, ministry, technology, science, engineering etc.


In order to deal with this responsibly, as well as to accommodate each case academic institutions in collaboration with other academic establishments all over the world, have devised a new academic system of INTERDISCIPLINARY MAJORS at all degree levels. It has been found that the latest trends in industry and commerce is to employ graduates or positions having completed studies with dual majors. Therefore, for example those at the master’s degree level may have an MBA with engineering management as a second major etc. This type of degree structure is an added advantage because it gives due recognition to the business manager for instance who is required to have technical and managerial training or similarly engineering training combined with managerial education. The same applies to other scientific professions such as chemistry, biology etc. For "Civil, Electrical, Electronic, Mechanical, Chemical, - Engineering" related education, for them we could arrange a degree e.g. as follows: Degrees at the levels of: Bachelor or Master or Doctor of Applied Science, or Biology with emphasis on Chemical Engineering (major) as the case may be.

Sometimes also we invite organizations or companies join hand with us to sponsor our publication projects.

c. Ansted University works towards Social Responsibility cultivation objective

Ansted University strives to earn international prominence as a university of special distinction through its integration of teaching, research and service to society. It is deeply committed to the creative understanding of nature and human society as an essential element of the learning process. From our university perspective, one of the main aspects of human society is that of citizenship of our global community and that citizenship implies a sense of social responsibility and a putting back into the community at least as much as is taken out.

Social responsibility has implications not just for us as individuals but also as members of communities and society at large. The concept also needs however be applied to organizations such as corporations and governments. Sadly this is often more apparent by its absence than by anything else. Much of our publication has been concerned with the consequences of this absence and with fostering a debate about how this might be changed. Education is one way to bring about change and this is central to the purpose of the university, and the principal reason for my involvement. Another potential way to bring about change however is through an engagement in scholarly debate, involving as many people as possible from as many different backgrounds as possible. Therefore, your proposal to introduce an academic publication must be related to foster this debate and to raise awareness among our students of both the ongoing debate and the need for this debate.

d. About the series of CSR books launching:

Ansted University demonstrates its commitment to social responsibility through some of the activities of its Asia Regional Service Center. It publishes the periodical Social Responsibility: an International Journal. Two books also are available. These are The Stakeholders and Social Responsibility and SRW Social Responsibility World of RecordPedia.

“Books don’t just happen by themselves. A number of smart, dedicated, competent, and compassionate people have to care about a book (and its authors) long enough to get it all done. On behalf of the management of Ansted, I would like to express my sincere thanks to all the writers who contributed their effort and time to develop these publications and promote Social Responsibility globally together with Ansted University and me. I know, no serious academic text or reference or resource book will ever see the light of day without the careful and thoughtful work of professional and academicians. Those people reviewed, criticized, and improved the contents of these books in many important ways, and to each of them goes our gratitude.” Prof. Dr. Roger Haw

Over the last decade the question of the relationship between organizations and society has been subject of much debate, often of a critical nature. The decade has seen protests concerning the actions of organizations, exposures of corporate exploitation and unfolding accounting scandals. At the same time, ethical behaviour and a concern for the environment have been shown to have a positive correlation with corporate performance.

Ansted University Publication Unit has launched two times of these “Stakeholders and social responsibility” and “SRW Social Responsibility World of RecordPedia 2004” two books held in Malaysia. The first launching ceremony was opened to only CSR conference delegates and the second launching ceremony was opened to Environment and Disaster Management conference delegates to witness it. Both launching ceremonies were held at the international level.

The nature of corporate social responsibility is a topical one for business and academics. The book was 1st launched in conjunction with the 2nd International Conference on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in Penang, Malaysia, 21-23 November 2004 and the 2nd launched was held in conjunction with the International Conference on Environment and Disaster Management "Our Shrinking World" is organized by the World Youth Foundation in cooperation with the Economic Planning Unit of the Prime Minister’s Department Malaysia, Ministry of Finance Malaysia, Ministry of Youth and Sports Malaysia, United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and Melaka State Government. .

The 21st century is an age when all people should learn to live in harmony. The best way we can put this spirit into practice is to become socially responsible people and organizations committed to the service of others.

Ansted brought together a group of Corporate Social Responsibility practitioners and experts as well as academicians and researchers from around the world who, in the spirit of peace and harmony, do so much to make this “Global Village” a better place to live in.

Corporations, regardless of size, play an important role in modern society. The effects of corporate activity impact the organization itself and society and the world in which it is immersed. Typical organizational influences are:

  • the distribution of wealth created within the firm to the owners of that firm (via dividends) and the workers of that firm (through wages) and the effect of this upon the welfare of individuals;
  • the enrichment of a local community through the creation of employment;
  • the effects of competition between itself and other organizations in the same market;
  • the utilisation of natural resources as a part of its production processes; and,
  • transformation of the landscape due to raw material extraction or waste product storage.


Thus, an organization has varied and wide reaching influences on its social, economic, cultural, and global environments. These effects can in some circumstances and by some people be viewed as beneficial and detrimental to others and, often, simultaneously.
The aim of the publications debate CSR, present records about social responsibility affairs and discuss how it can be implemented and continued. Readers learn from eminent experts from various parts of the world how each is dealing with CSR issues. Readers should not expect only economic or business approaches to CSR.

If you wish to read some of the commendable messages pertaining to our publication do write to us and we are very happy to send it to you for perusal.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a topic which is considered to be of particular importance at the present time and definitions of corporate social responsibility are many and diverse. In all however there is an implicit understanding that corporations are a part of society just as much as each of us is as an individual and have the same obligations to responsible behaviour.
The benefits of the book project:

  • Enhancing the mission of Ansted in terms of teaching, research and service to the community
  • Enhancing the reputation of Ansted worldwide as a scholarly community
  • Promoting Ansted through its reputation for scholarly debate
  • Helping to promote social responsibility and citizenship in the global community

The reason behind of SRW RecordPedia publication: Penang is an Island known as “Pearl of the Orient” in the world. Also it is a birthplace of “SRW Social Responsibility World of Recordpedia” - the first kind of world book of records with a focus in the area of social responsibility affairs. Prof. Dr Roger Haw, the Chairman and Founder/author of this book said that purpose of the SRW RecordPedia book is to keep track of all the CSR activities around the world. It shows how we practise, learn and grow as a result of individuals and corporate involvement in the community. This will get all the CSR Conference organizers around the world, CSR practice companies, CSR Awardees and all type of social responsibility illustrations recorded and compiled in SRW RecordPedia, which will provide a one-stop reference book for mankind to review. Prof. Dr. Roger Haw hopes that his idea to initiate SRW RecordPedia book project is a profound movement, which will mean a lot to the present and future generations. Perhaps it may be one of the tools to promote PEACE and a cultivating Social responsibility practice mission.

The SRW RordPedia has something to express: “Ansted University, since its inception has been cultivating social responsibility through various channels. “Ansted University is committed to develop a noble system of technology for educational development to achieve academic excellence and a caring community around the world.” Ansted Service Center gives me life.

On 26th December 2004, just 33 days after an international launching of the SRW Recordpedia book (which mainly focus on social responsibility aspects), the silent and mega “Tsunami Disaster” that ever happened killed more than 350,000 people and caused a few hundred thousand more of them to be injured and lose everything they have had in the past. In less than 5 minutes everything was gone. Just imagine the strong impact of this disaster which called for reflection by the entire world of citizens on HOW IMPORTANT SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY PRACTICE really is. This SRW RecordPedia book includes documents of proof for the world. The future SRW RecordPedia book is equally important for you to read and keep it as part of the series of reference books which can be passed on to FUTURE generation.

Its goals are to educate, share various types of Social Responsibility practice models, encourage and inspire individuals and Corporations to make Social Responsibility Practice as one of the sustainable development movements to become part of a human living culture valued in modern times.

SRW RecordPedia will become an important resource for references.

The Commendable message from the Chief Minister of Melaka, Malaysia

"Greetings from the Chief Minister of Malacca cum Chairman of World Youth Foundation, Malacca. I am indeed glad to inform you that the ‘SRW Social Responsibility World of RecordPedia’ and ‘Stakeholders and social responsibility’ CSR series books which discuss about Social Responsibility affairs in a globalise world is very enriching and informative. In today’s world

where companies are moving towards free trade, major companies should play a supportive role by being socially responsible as they are a part of society. Though not a business requirement, CSR is fast becoming an established global corporate practice, which benefits the society that we live in. These books contain valuable insights on issues pertaining to CSR and the role that organizations, multinationals and all major stakeholders can play in becoming a part of it. The articles put forth in these books are very beneficial and I would recommend everyone to read these books. I would also like to express my heartfelt thanks to Prof. Dr. Roger Haw and his colleagues for doing such a splendid job in publishing the CSR series with the aim of raising public awareness.
