EDUCATORS today face different set of challenges from educators of the last century in meeting the demand of providing employable, progressive, knowledgeable graduates; in short, talent pools-in acacademic and non-academic, who are able to survive and thrive in this dynamic market environment.
Malaysia realizes that education serves as a cornerstone for the country to achieve a high income nation status. Cultivating and developing workforce who are able to learn, unlearn and relearn will ensure that high performance human capital assets are in place and this is a pre-requisite for a nation to excel and to remain competitive.
Entering into its 17th edition, this year's summit shall focus on major developments such as rethinking Malaysian education for a globalised world, building and sustaining world-class universities, university-industry partnership, marketing and branding for education schools of the future, technologies and innovations in education, open distance learning, among others.
The Malaysia Education Summit is the premier education conference of the year bringing together key decision makers, policy formulators, private sector players, educationists, academicians and investors to discuss the critical challenges facing Malaysian education and opportunities available for private sector participation as the private sector continues to play an integral role in partnership with the public sector in opening up education space in Malaysia. This is an important meeting of minds and a compelling conversation opportunity to feel the pulse of the education sector and to be updated on new trends and developments.
