This conference is organised to address current key challenges faced by many organizations and institutions of higher learning in Malaysia. Today, it’s pertinent for institutions of higher learning to produce graduates who are knowledgeable in their chosen field of studies and who possess the necessary soft skills that meet the expectation of their employers. When organizations do not have the right talent to fuel their operations and to strategize for the future, the cost comes in the form of missed opportunities, dissatisfied clients and a negative impact on the bottom line.

How do we produce graduates who meet industry’s demand and expectation? What does industry wish from us? How do the academia and industry work together to address our national challenges in talent development? How do we improve talent development in the country? We invite you to join us as we champion the clarion call of producing balanced graduates who are values driven, entrepreneurial and industrial savvy, and who exude the graduate attributes of a praxis university ©.
