Abstract

Malaysia’s agenda for establishing itself as an education hub is driven by the need to build its capacity in human capital, knowledge, and innovation, as well as strengthening education as a trade sector for revenue generation. Malaysia’s current profile is that of a student hub based on the exponential growth of the international student body, particularly in the private sector, during the past decade. This chapter explains that while the country’s commitment and progress is much lauded, there are still several critical issues that need to be addressed for Malaysia to stand firm on its status as an education hub. These include the diversification of the current international student demography, graduate employability, skilled workforce development, and brain drain. Malaysia’s future rests on its ability to integrate the various components of education hub to ensure that there is added value gained from its diverse and important cross-border education activities.
