University will strengthen ties between Malaysia and Botswana

Hon. Dato' Mustapa bin Mohamed

The Limkokwing University of Creative Technology has established a distinct reputation in Malaysia. Not only for its offering of diverse and attractive programmes, but also, for its success in attracting many international students to study at its campus in Cyberjaya.

Today, I am indeed pleased to note the official opening of Limkokwing University Botswana, true to this institution’s moniker of being ‘The Global University’. I am also greatly encouraged by this opening, as it represents a strong testimony to the quality of Malaysian higher education, and its growing acceptance abroad.

The demands made of today’s human capital, particularly through the globalization of economies and communities require us to transform traditional modes of thinking. It is in this light that I hope Limkokwing University will impart its expertise in creativity and innovative thinking, to students at the Gaborone campus. It is my hope also that the relationships and collaborations resulting from this endeavour will also help strengthen ties between Botswana and Malaysia, in addition to providing a sound education for those attending the University.

Congratulations to Limkokwing University Botswana on this very auspicious occasion. Thank you also to the people and Government of Botswana for welcoming this institution to their country.

I wish all students and members of faculty well, in their pursuit and advancement of higher education.

Hon. Dato’ Mustapa bin Mohamed
Minister of Higher Education
