Malaysian working professionals are invited by ICT solutions firm Fujitsu Malaysia to apply for a certificate management scholarship programme in Honolulu, Hawaii, which includes a one-week study trip to Tokyo.
"The East-West Knowledge Leaders Programme (EWKLP), which is being offered by JAIMS (Japan-America Institute of Management Science), is a three-month long certificate management programme that provides continued education for experienced business professionals with a Bachelor's degree and at least three years of full-time work experience," said Fujitsu Malaysia president, Charles Lew.
"The curriculum focus of EWKLP is on East-and-West global best practices delivered in a highly conducive learning environment for scholarship recipients to develop a wide range of knowledge-based leadership competencies and innovation skills," said Lew.
