UNIVERSITY OUTREACH PROGRAM

Inspire upcoming talent, create innovative demand-driven solutions, and transform & upskill students with real-world challenges.

ABOUT

As one of our differentiated and unique niches creates a linkage between learning institutions and corporates, we seek to implement that through our University Outreach Program.

The key to building successful cooperation between universities and corporates lies in mutual respect for each player’s area of expertise. It’s also essential to understand early on the goals of the partnership on the academic side and how the results will be shared and used on the corporate side.

Behind the desire to build healthy learning, institutions-corporate collaborations lie that there are countless challenges to be tackled worldwide – whether in medicine, new technology, or science.

This program is an initiative to get universities more involved in innovation and technology entrepreneurship.


We seek to equip students with entrepreneurial skills related to tech and innovation early on in the university, empower them with real-world employable/job skills, and provide job attachments through partnering with corporates.


This gives them a chance for students to think about problems around them, co-create innovative solutions, and develop business cases around these solutions.
