Introduction:


 

From inception – in 1991 - the Limkokwing University of Creative Technology has been sensitive to market demands because it felt a strong responsibility to produce graduates who are able to make a smooth transition from classroom to workplace. The Limkokwing University has no parallel in the manner it has expanded and merged with the countries where it has set up campuses. The University matches its programs with the countries’ national development plans to build the kind of manpower they need to build their economies. Through six faculties – Design Innovation, Multimedia Creativity, Communication, Media & Broadcasting, Information Technology & Computing, Business Management & Globalization and Architecture & Built Environment – the university runs an extensive range of programs. Its Executive Leadership College also offers specially tailored courses in leadership, entrepreneurship, Finance and information technology. Limkokwing University of Creative Technology (referred to as LUCT, LKW or just Limkokwing) is a private international university with a presence across three continents: Africa, Europe and Asia. With its main campus in Malaysia, the university has over 30,000 students from more than 150 countries, studying in its 11 other campuses in Botswana, Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Lesotho, Swaziland and the United Kingdom

The institute formed relationships with universities and colleges in the UK, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. At the same time, the institute forged links with industry to provide direction and support to enable the university to create an environment that was conducive to education. Collaborating with industry gave many opportunities for students to engage in real work experience. In 2002 the institute became the first private college to be recognized as a University College. On the campus are nearly 40 clubs representing students from countries like Pakistan, Botswana, China, Indonesia, India, Iran and Sri Lanka. Their members take part in sports, cultural, religious and lifestyle activities on and off the campus, creating a multi-faceted ambience. The great chemistry among the clubs makes Limkokwing one closely-knit family.
