WORLD’S MOST GLOBALISED UNIVERSITY
The UNESCO Institute for Information Technologies and the University are collaborating to develop a joint project - ICT for University Accessibility Network - that extends its reach to include students from vulnerable quarters of the global population.
“This new development will establish a special Lab in collaboration with UNESCO that strengthens our joint obligation to lift the disabled, not only in this country but across all our campuses in Asia, Africa and the UK,” said Founder President Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Paduka Limkokwing. The collaboration underscores the long friendship the University has had with the United Nations through its various organisations – UNESCO, UNDP, UNHCR. The United Nations has made the University a member of its Academic Impact programme recognising the University’s commitment to 10 principals valued by the UN which are related to its commitment to the UN Charter, human rights, global citizenship, educational opportunity for all, capacity-building in higher education systems, higher education opportunity for every interested individual, peace and conflict resolution, addressing poverty, sustainability and the “unlearning” of intolerance.
Across the world employers are desperately seeking graduates with the right competencies as emerging technology breakthroughs impact their businesses. At the crux of this great transformation taking place across the world pressure is rising for the right calibre of human capital to manage the transition businesses have to make in order to stay afloat. Getting a degree is no guarantee of success at work. Being technology competent is a must but the real demand is for graduates being able to respond with speed to market changes. That calls for a creative and innovative mindset.
Boosting career-readiness through additional skills acquisition
Since its inception, 30 years ago, Limkokwing University has remained sensitive to industry needs. Their graduates have been a source of strength through their ability to manage workplace challenges. The ecosystem at Limkokwing University has been carefully designed to nurture the thinking skills as well as the ability of students to take their ideas into final production. The ecosystem includes off-classroom activities that allow interaction with other disciplines for a cohesive understanding of how the real world functions.
Malaysia’s most international, award-winning education brand
To date the University and its Founding President Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Paduka Limkokwing have won over 730 awards and recognition from governments, industry, institutions and organisations across the world. This includes eight Reader’s Digest Gold Awards for Most Trusted Private University, received in 2011, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 and now 2021 – which also marks the seventh consecutive title in this category.
An international University with campuses in Asia, Africa and Europe, Limkokwing University works closely with the United Nations and the Commonwealth. The Commonwealth Youth Leadership University is established within the University and more recently the University has been recognised as a Global TVET Model University by ASIC of the United Kingdom.
