  • Projected jobs by 2020

This EPP was established to meet the growing demand for non-profit education institutions in Malaysia. The establishment of the Asian Women Leadership University (AWLU) represents a turnkey initiative under this EPP, comprising Malaysia's first liberal arts institution.

The university aims to attract talented women from Asia and the Middle East and provide scholarships to those from conflict-ridden countries. This project, established by international social entrepreneurs, is in collaboration with Smith College, US.


  • The Asian Women’s Leadership University project continues to engage with the MoE and relevant stakeholders to determine the next course of action for the project.
