Founding President of Limkokwing University, Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Paduka Dr. Limkokwing has spent a lifetime on a personal mission to transform youth worldwide through creative and innovative education.
Steered by a greater focus on universal access to education, his untiring efforts have been instrumental in impacting millions of lives, opening unparalleled halls of academia to admit youth all over the world for whom a tertiary education would otherwise have been denied because of traditional ideas that reserved university education for an exclusive few.
On 2 May 2019, Tan Sri Limkokwing was recognised for ‘Leadership Excellence in Global Education’ at the Global Leadership Awards. The prestigious event was held at Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC), Kuala Lumpur.
Limkokwing Vice President of Brand Creativity and Talent Development, Dato’ Tiffanee Marie Lim, received the award on his behalf.
Over the past four decades Tan Sri Limkokwing’s outstanding track record in highlighting the value of industry-led education through Limkokwing University has created an institution that is transforming nations worldwide.
Some 30,000 students from 165 countries sitting in classrooms and industry workshops at Limkokwing campuses across Asia, Africa and Europe bear witness to this fact.
Both Tan Sri Limkokwing and the University have received awards from around the world, in recognition for unparalleled excellence, quality and contribution towards transformational change. To date, there are over 700 prestigious awards, honours and recognitions from industry, governments and NGOs across five continents.
Organised by Leaders Online, Global Leadership Awards give due recognition to genuine leadership showcasing excellent individual organizational skills via outstanding initiatives as well as inspiration to society.
