International degrees transform students into leaders

International programs are fundamentally altering the landscape for Malaysia’s business students

After my extensive interviews with Malaysian students who attend UK or OZ branch-campuses, it was very evident that these students have experienced a radical transformation.  Every student I spoke with expressed how different university was from high school – specifically the emphasis on groupwork and communication skills.  The exam-based, memorization-style learning of their high schools was completely uprooted in their first year of university.  However, final year students reflecting back, had a thousand positive anecdotes to share about how they had learned to deal with conflict, manage people and were more articulate as a result of their degree.  Read more about these findings in my recent University World News blog
