The initiative is a global network that facilitates students to be part of the digital economy, training them to be business owners and equipping them with entrepreneur skills and knowledge.
It provides students learning materials based on real-world case studies and videos through GET Online Learning platform and the simulation platform.
Explaining Sunway Education Group’s participation in the initiative, Sunway Education Group chief executive officer Dr Elizabeth Lee said, “Through the learning materials, students are able to learn the Alibaba online business ecosystem and understand important business concepts for the digital economy, which will increase their competitiveness.
“The initiative also allows the students to see the differences between operating online stores compared to traditional retail stores, what makes major internet companies successful and how Internet start-ups and companies operate and differ in work culture.
“The integration of the Alibaba GET syllabus into our curriculum will help us foster a new generation of talented and young passionate entrepreneurs who can bring new business ventures and innovation into our country, ultimately building talent to support Malaysia’s drive towards a digital economy,” she said.
The training was led by Alibaba GET Network lead trainer and project manager Andreas M Strandgaard, general secretary Zhou Yong, and Alibaba Group-Academic committee and global eCommerce talent programme director Matthew Kung.
Oracle Cross-Border eCommerce practical training lecturer Kevin Xia Yu was also part of the training team.
