The Monitor :: Limkokwing University Awarded International Accreditation








Tan Sri Limkokwing is a well-known global creative force for innovation and drive for transformation in tertiary education and the President/Founder of Malaysia’s most globalised University.

At the awards ceremony held at Limkokwing University’s main campus in Malaysia, ASIC Chairman, Maurice Dimmock, said the students at the University acquire knowledge and skills from basic to advanced levels across a wide range of institution and work settings and in diverse socio-economic contexts. “It is in this environment that it gives me great pleasure to make these awards to Tan Sri Limkokwing and to the Limkokwing University.”

He also said ASIC will also be with Tan Sri Limkokwing and the University to network them with world networks such as Intentional Vocation and Education and Training Association (IVETA), TVET-UK, UNICEF and UNESCO. “This will give them access to regeneration projects in Botswana, Zambia, Malawi, Namibia and the Congo.

“UNESCO procures goods and services estimated at around USD125 Million per annum,” he said. “In addition to the requirements for the implementation of the programme are activities under the main themes of education, natural sciences, social and human science, culture and communications.”

According to Dimmock, Limkokwing University, with its rich history of transformational education is perfectly aligned to be successful in procuring these contracts and making a real difference to these countries and indeed would be a continuation of what the University have been doing for the last five years in Africa.

“It is in recognition of this work of Limkokwing University and of Tan Sri Limkokwing’s vision and dynamic, transforming leadership that ASIC wish to honour them both today,” he said. “Limkokwing University of Creative Technology is a truly Global TVET Model University, led by an inspirational leader in Tan Sri Limkokwing. This recognition encompasses the successful systematic delivery of industry-relevant programmes across its campuses in Asia, Africa and Europe. Programmes which prioritise digital skills, creativity and design to produce human capital imbued with the skill set needed by industry to manage the challenges of a globalised technology driven workforce.”

In accepting the awards on behalf of Limkowing University, Dayo Raja Aznil, Senior Vice-President, Industry Empowerment said the Limkokwing model provide the yardstick with which  TVET in Malaysia can build the right approach to vocational education that addresses talent needs of creative industries identified by UNESCO as the world’s fastest growing sector. “With ASIC’s recognition as Global TVET Model University, Malaysia can fulfil its strategies to strengthen governance, enhance delivery and quality of programmes as well as improve branding of TVET as attractive career choices,” he said.

Dato Raja Aznil also said Limkokwing University has all the right attributes to provide the support that technical vocational education and training needs to produce the talent and skills

the creative industries are desperate for as their businesses soar.

“Our mission is to produce highly skilled graduates who are equipped to participate in the national economies. In consequences of our creative industry orientation our graduates are more job creators rather than job seekers – precisely what the national economy needs. Our graduates are recognised as the best and crucially as ‘industry ready’ by virtue of our TVET model which has developed and evolved over the last 25 years”.

Tan Sri Limkokwing and the University that bears his name changed the face of private education through creative approaches that fuse industry experience with academic learning. Thousands of young people from around the world have gained a global tertiary education by virtue of the University’s pioneering and innovative education philosophy which is creativity oriented.

More the 30,000 students study at Limkokwing University’s 12 campuses in Asia, Africa and Europe. Its main campus in KL’s tech-city, Cyberjaya alone holds close to 10,000 students, 80% of them from foreign countries and is the nation’s ground breaking University with unrivalled emphasis upon innovation and creativity. The University has changed the tertiary education landscape not only in Malaysia but in every country the University has established itself.

Its inspirational ecosystems and global strategic outlook produces 21st century graduates who are leading social and economic transformational across the globe. The University has played a pivotal role in globalising Malaysian education and the Prime Minister of Malaysia, Dato Sri Dr Mohd Najib Tun Razak, has designated the University as The Global University of Malaysia.

The University is also recognised as Malaysia’s University of Edu-Tourism in recognition of its achievement attracting youths to the country.

QS Apple (Asia Pacific Professional Leaders in Education) designated the University as the University of the Future, the Ministry of Higher Education awarded the accolade University of Innovation and the Malaysian government recognises Limkokwing University and the University of Transformation. In addition, the University has won more than 200 awards for creativity and innovation in education from the United States of America, the United Kingdom, Europe, Asia and Africa over the last few years.

The University’s award winning website attracts 300 million ‘hits’ a year from 229 countries and territories and the University is now among the Top Ten of the world’s most popular universities on Facebook and Twitter (3rd).

ASIC recognises the University’s successful systematic delivery of industry-relevant programmes across the globe as well as its Founder and President’s pioneering efforts in education.
