KUALA LUMPUR: The Kuala Lumpur Education City (KLEC) project has partnered with Judge Business School, of the University of Cambridge, to offer open and customised executive education programmes locally.
The programmes, targeting senior and top management levels, will be part of the KLEC’s initiative to promote world-class executive and continuing professional education programmes within the region.
KLEC is a project supported by the Government in line with the aim of establishing Malaysia as a regional hub for education.
Both parties have signed a memorandum of understanding. The signing was between Kahlil Anwar Kamal, chief executive officer of Kuala Lumpur Education City Sdn Bhd and Joerg Geier, director of global programmes at Judge Business School’s Executive Education division.
The programmes will be offered via the KLEC Centre for Executive Education at its temporary campus for now. The permanent campus, which will be ready in January 2012, is located at Bandar Enstek — about 10 minutes from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport.
Open enrolment programmes will include a 10-day general management programme as well as a combination of four-day executive programmes in leadership, strategy, finance as well as human resource and marketing/branding with customised programmes also offered for the corporate and public sectors as part of this collaboration.
The programmes are expected to start from August.
The KLEC project was launched in 2006 and includes the development of a 500-acre academic park. Current anchor partner institutions include Universiti Sains Malaysia and a group of British universities to be announced later this year.
Cambridge Judge Business School is internationally recognised as one of the leading providers of innovative, intellectually challenging and practical business management education across a portfolio of undergraduate, graduate and executive programmes.
