ASIC UK honours Tan Sri Limkokwing

1 September 2020

Limkokwing University’s unconventional approach to tertiary education continues to get recognition and is winning worthy accolades abroad. Driven by creativity and innovation, the University engages and works with various governments where it is established to address unemployment issues due to a mismatch of skills of fresh graduates and the calibre needed in the workplace.

The United Kingdom’s Accreditation Service for International Schools, Colleges and Universities (ASIC) has awarded Limkokwing University Founder & President Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Paduka Limkokwing the ASIC International Award of Excellence in recognition of Tan Sri Limkokwing’s transformational leadership in providing inclusive educational opportunities throughout Africa where he has established campuses in Botswana, Lesotho, Eswatini and Sierra Leone – with more campuses to open in Namibia and Uganda.

Tan Sri Limkokwing is credited for spearheading the process of reforming many of the world’s Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) sector, a vital sub sector of many a country’s education system. His pioneering endeavours in building a strong TVET workforce with high-tech, skill-based training has created generations of young entrepreneurs who are contributing to transforming their nations. Tan Sri Limkokwing is best known for bringing about much-needed change to Malaysia’s antiquated, post-colonial education system. In the process, he revolutionised the very concept of tertiary education on a global scale.

Through his Foundation and University campuses across the world, tens of thousands of individuals from diverse backgrounds have had the privilege to be exposed to a unique form of industry-driven education that places emphasis on creativity and innovation.

This award is worthy looking at the establishments of Special Need Units and Private Students Scholarships Tan Sri has made possible throughout his campuses in Africa.

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.

Its inspirational ecosystems and global strategic outlook produces 21st century graduates who are leading social and economic transformational across the globe.

For 50 years, Tan Sri has passionately involved himself in nation-building and advocated transformation and innovation of human capital for developing nations and organisations – as key to a more equitable and peaceful world into the next decade of the 21st century.
