Africa’s Middle-Class Boom
Africa is the world's second-largest and second most populous continent. At about 30.2 million km² (11.7 million sq mi) including adjacent islands, it covers six percent of the Earth's total surface area and 20.4 percent of the total land area. With 1.0 billion people (as of 2009, see table), it accounts for about 15% of the world's human population.
The continent is surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea to the north, both the Suez Canal and the Red Sea along the Sinai Peninsula to the northeast, the Indian Ocean to the southeast, and the Atlantic Ocean to the west.
The Quintessential Maverick
Limkokwing is the quintessential maverick. He doesn’t follow the rules. He isn’t hemmed in by the straitjacket of convention. He is a visionary, spotting opportunities and trends long before others catch on. Most importantly, he doesn’t give a damn about his critics.
While the definition of mavericks may differ somewhat on semantics, on substance they describe a highly creative, witty, intelligent non-conformist.
Innovation is the driving force of transformation.
Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Paduka Limkokwing
Bestowed the title of "Father of Innovation in Creative Education"
by Ministry of Science, Technology and Information, Malaysia in 2010
