Mark Garnier said “The UK is home to world-leading education expertise and it’s welcome to see this recognised through the Saïd Business School and K-Pintar collaboration. Executive training programmes like this are essential to equipping business leaders with skills they need to drive future growth and economic success. As an international economic department, we are committed to promoting trade and investment ties with high performing economies like Malaysia as we look to global opportunities beyond Europe.”

The portfolio has been developed especially for Malaysia by Oxford Saïd, in partnership with leading Malaysian training provider K-Pintar, and responds to the key themes and learning needs identified by business leaders from SMEs and corporates in the country. It seeks to build the capabilities and skills needed to meet Malaysia’s ambitious plans for economic growth and respond to the challenges of the fourth industrial revolution.
