Cultural Melting Pot
Situated right in the heart of Asia, Malaysia enjoys a strategic location and a year-round tropical climate at an average of 27 °C (80.6 °F). With a population of more than 31 million, Malaysia combines the best of Asia and is well known for its diverse cultural landscape, which includes three of Asia’s oldest civilizations – Malay, Chinese and Indian – and the unique ethnic communities of Sabah and Sarawak.
City of Opportunities
Kuala Lumpur has evolved from its humble beginnings as a mining town to where it is today to become a dynamic economic hub in the region. It holds a firm placing among the echelon of vibrant commercial centers in Asia due to its strategic location, ease in doing business, its global connectivity, combined with world-class infrastructure, a highly diversified economy, and a skilled and multilingual workforce.
This has resulted in Kuala Lumpur being consistently ranked as one of the top 10 Asian cities in the likes of the A.T. Kearney Global Cities Index, DHL Globalization Giants ranking, IESE Cities in Motion Index, and Mori Global Power City Index over the past few years. Most recently, Malaysia was also ranked top 25 in in the World Talent Ranking due to the quality of its workforce, sitting above advanced economies like the UK, France, and Japan, making it very attractive for Multinational Companies (MNCs) such as GE, Honeywell, IBM, Linde Group, Schlumberger, GlaxoSmithKline, and Panasonic to establish their regional hubs here.
With the shift in global economic growth from advanced economies towards the emerging economies, Kuala Lumpur, with its strategic location, serves as the perfect hub for our students to experience Asia through our Action Learning projects, where frequent travel to neighboring countries for projects are a part of the core curriculum. These projects allow our students to discover and experience unparalleled diversity in culture, food, geography, and lifestyles, experiencing Asia at its very best for themselves.
