1 university, 5 continents concept in response to global needs
The university has focused its efforts on London, Kuala Lumpur and Gaborone in line with its "One University. Three Continents" concept that is its answer to globalization. It is a 21 st century education that meets the demands of an era that calls for the creation of a new generation of workers - IT-sawy versatile and highly-skilled people who would thrive in any challenging environment in whatever part of the world.
There is no mistaking the importance of being exposed to various cultures of the world, and therein lies the beauty of a Limkokwing education. Students not only get to immerse themselves in a highly international environment at the university's Cyberjaya campus that is training ground to 6,000 students from 90 countries; they now also get to opt to pursue their programme in different parts of the world.
The Limkokwing Global Classroom which took root last year has rapidly expanded and continues to expand. At the heart of it, the programmes serve to equip students with the right skills for a global environment, and with it the right international mindset.
As the tagline suggests, there is the flexibility of beginning one's programme in one city and ending it in another. One could opt to begin the journey to success at the Limkokwing campus in Cyberjaya and continue at Limkokwing London before finishing their studies in Limkokwing in Botswana.
Whether it is a degree programme or a diploma in fields such as graphic design, broadcasting, multimedia, architecture, fashion or business, the Limkokwing student can expect flexibility and affordability.
They can also count on being trained to keep abreast with the times, if not ahead of it. The university after all, takes pride in planning its curriculum to be ahead of the pack, focusing on new skills that are needed in the future.
Industry-within university for a leadership edge
And it has indeed done so, among others via its industry-within-university concept that positions the university well in playing a key role in nation-building, branding and leadership.
"Limkokwing today is easily the most industry- driven in the world," he says. "We look at what the industry expects and the kind of leadership needed and then develop graduates accordingly, Our students become highly employable because industry leadership is important in today's world."
This philosophy has seen Limkokwing contributing to significant events such as last year's World Congress on Information Technology (WCIT) held in Texas, a flagship event of a consortium of 65 international ICT organisations representing more than 90 percent of the world's IT market. Limkokwing played a strong role in the design and branding of the event, including coming up with the video screening during the handover ceremony by Prime Minister Dato' Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.
Representation in all economies, all regions
Tan Sri Lim says that the concept is in response to the globalize business environment. "Until recently, students had to go to such countries such as the UK, Australia and New Zealand to experience international education. Now, in the true sense of the term 'globalization', young people can move around the world more freely.
"Students coming to our campus have the potential of meeting friends from 90 countries. It not only means more opportunities in terms of establishing an international network of friends, but also translates to students enhancing their career prospects because of the international exposure."
For Tan Sri Lim, Limkokwing's expansion is part and parcel of marketing the country as an attractive option for higher studies. "We do not want to be viewed as a cheaper option or a halfway house. We are about creativity, new concepts and opportunities. The world will see the benefits of coming here to study."
Limkokwing continues to actively pursue discussion with various universities worldwide in working out collaborations. Ultimately, the university will "be represented in all economies, all regions". Tan Sri Lim says.
Global innovative network gains recognition
Perhaps the best gauge of Limkokwing's success thus far in revolutionizing the tertiary education scene lies in the many accolades that have come the way of both university and the man at the helm.
He may have worked behind the scenes to execute various successful ventures in terms of brand-development and image-building but Tan Sri Lim's efforts are well noted. Last year, nearly a dozen awards including major ones from reputable organisations in Europe and another from a global leader in professional services, Ernst & Young, were awarded to him.
The title CEO of the Year 2006 (given by Malaysia-Canada Business Council) joined earlier ones garnered including the Ernst & Young Malaysian Entrepreneur of the Year 2005, European University's Professor Emeritus for the Chair of Innovation Management, and the title of "Asia's most creative thinker and personality" which was presented to him by the Deputy Lord Mayor of the City of Westminster, Councilor Jan Prendergast.
These new achievements are relevant as the university continues to forge a new trail: turning the university college into one of the world's most globalize universities - and along the way, boosting Malaysia's position as an education hub.
The goal is also to help set up a global innovative network, where the best of east and west could come together and explore opportunities culturally and in terms of innovation.
Best of east and west
Limkokwing's arrival in London -the university is located at Piccadilly - bears the hallmarks of Tan Sri Lim's brilliant creativity and innovative spirit. This east-west link is part of a strategy - that also includes Botswana - to creatte innovation hubs in every continent that will enable Limkokwing students to build not only their skills but gain multicultural knowledge needed in today's globalize workplace. And now that Tan Sri Lim has set his sights on London and Botswana, the university expects to go where no Malaysian university has ever gone before - starting with making available Malaysian degrees on foreign soil.
The expansion to London marks the first time Malaysian degrees are developed and delivered in that part of the world. And already the move has created waves, reflecting how the Malaysian brand name has created a strong presence in Europe.
"The whole world wants to go to London. Just studying or working there is a great experience. This is where you get a concentration of ideas in one place, the branding, packaging, sound, smell, look, form, texture, architecture, marketing, ideas, creativity ...what more in central London where we are located."
The arrival of Limkokwing University in Botswana is no less interesting, generating a lot of interest among the people in the country. The second private university to be set up in the country, Limkokwing is well recognized in Botswana for its efforts in promoting creativity and innovation; it is now noted for being on a mission to help the Botswana government build Gaborone as a regional hub for education.
"The success of Limkokwing's Botswana students has been a great source of encouragement. We look forward to enhanced collaboration not only in education but other areas like tourism, communications and trade promotion," Tan Sri Lim says, adding that the university received its batch of students from Botswana in 1999 and many have since graduated and gone on to pursue higher goals.
"We are most happy to have contributed to the success of these students who bear the characteristics of the high-achieving Limkokwing graduate - creative, innovative, adaptable and with an international mindset.
"Limkokwing is designed to be dynamic, stimulating and inspiring, offering a rich cultural diversity that means students bring home valuable experience. The university responds to the needs of the global world and focuses on moving with the times."
