Since its inception in 2002, Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP) has been relentlessly striving towards providing world-class, state-of-the-art technical education.
We welcome and actively invest in cross-cultural relationships— not only in monetary terms but also in the form of thoughts, ideas and time,” remarks Professor Dato’ Dr. Daing Nasir Ibrahim, Vice Chancellor of Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP), when asked about the key drivers of modern Malaysia’s impressive growth story.
This quote from the spearhead of one of Malaysia’s best technical universities is an excellent starting point to appreciate why the country—already a leading tourism destination globally—is fast emerging as an important education hub. Indeed, in any analysis of the factors that set Malaysia apart, its cultural openness will feature prominently. Malaysians believe in creating workable and strategic partnerships that transcend differences. They believe in enriching their own culture through healthy cross-cultural exchanges. And as Vice Chancellor, Dr. Daing Nasir Ibrahim points out, the country’s education system in general and UMP in particular stand to gain a lot from its wide, international outlook and relationships.
