This paper attempts to share with other participants the experience of Open University Malaysia (OUM) in managing a new program in Bachelor of Islamic Studies. What is very particular about the program is that it is being taught in an open and distance learning mode (ODL). Like other Islamic studies program, it covers all subjects related to sharia, management, theology and Arabic. The target groups are those who have diploma qualification from various universities and colleges, as well as first degree holders that are recognised by Malaysian Public Services Department. Most of these students are adult learners who are now working in various government departments and agencies. Apart from that a number of students currently enrolled are admitted through the Open Entry System. (Authors' abstract)
