The world-renowned MBA programme developed by Edinburgh Business School at Heriot-Watt University UK will be delivered by top UK and Asian faculty in Malaysia from January 2013 at the newly established Heriot-Watt University Malaysia campus.

The MBA programme will be taught in a brand new facility at the headquarters of Putrajaya Holdings Sdn Bhd, in 2013, and during 2014 the MBA and other university programmes will move to a new, prestigious state-of-the-art campus at Putrajaya.

Professor Robert Craik, Chief Executive Officer and Provost of Heriot-Watt University Malaysia, says the new campus will have a wide and significant impact:

“We are committed to offering high quality British education to students from Malaysia and across Asia, providing quality degrees to educate the next generation of leaders in a wide range of fields and building education and research links around the region.”

Business Director of Edinburgh Business School, Alick Kitchin, says the launch of the MBA in Malaysia marks a new chapter in the school’s relationship with the country:

“Malaysian students have enjoyed access to the most flexible MBA programme in the world for the last 20 years, but now we are delighted to be able to offer our programme to Malaysian managers on campus, via part-time study. Many successful Malaysian leaders and thinkers hold our MBA, and the development of the state-of-the-art campus at Putrajaya will open up the programme to the next generation of Malaysia talent – on home soil.”

The Edinburgh Business School MBA programme will build on the school’s long history in Malaysia. The MBA has been available to students since 1992, through study in the UK, independent study, or academic partner institutions. There are more than 1,200 graduates from this MBA in Malaysia.
