On the 8th of August, IUMW were honoured to welcome the Deputy Minister of Education, YB Teo Nie Ching, to witness the signing of a fantastic collaboration between IUMW and Akademi Usahawan Maju Malaysia.
It is a collaboration that will not only see IUMW strengthen existing links in China, but also provide an additional pathway, allowing students from China to study at IUMW, from Foundation level right through to PhD.
Of the collaboration and signing ceremony, IUMW's Deputy Vice Chancellor Mr Stephen Griffiths said that IUMW was "honoured to celebrate the signing of an MOU with Akademi Usahawan Maju Malaysia, led by Mr Kee Wah Soong, which will expand the university's links in the People's Republic of China".
Mr Griffiths went on to say that it was "fantastic to welcome our special VIP, YB Teo Nie Ching, Deputy Minister of Education, who as well as witnessing the signing ceremony, gave her valuable advice and insight on the Malaysian government's international education strategy. Also observing, were leaders and professors from the Institute of Business for Innovators, who are likely to be sending significant numbers of students to study at IUMW"
In a world where forming international links has never been easier, it has also never been so crucial. IUMW are always seeking to make the most of global opportunities, forming global partnerships and fostering cross-cultural relationships with other institutions across the world. It is beneficial for not only the staff and institution as a whole, but also for IUMW's students to be able to study, work and travel in an international capacity.
