CEO FACULTY PROGRAMME

The Academia Industry Talent Exchange Programme (AIxCHANGE)is an Initiative that brings together top CEOs and industry players into Malaysian public universities to share their knowledge and experiences with students and the university community.

AIxCHANGE is aimed to intensify the participation of the industrial sector and the public sector as part of the national higher education system through the sharing of experiences and expertise luminaries from industry and public agencies.

There are 2 key programmes under AIxCHANGE called the [email protected] Programme 1.0, [email protected] Programme 2.0 and The Academia Industry Expert Exchange Programme (AIxPERT).

"LEARN FROM THE PROs"


The [email protected] Programme 1.0 brings together top local and international CEOs and industry players into Malaysia’s universities to share their knowledge and experiences with students and the university community. The CEOs, appointed as ‘Adjunct Professors’, have committed up to 30 hours a year of their time to provide mentorship to university students and lecturers, and even guide universities on matters such as curriculum development to ensure industry relevance.

"COACHED BY THE PROs"


CFP2.0 is aimed at exposing university lecturers below 40 years old with a doctoral degree to the rudiments and operations of the industry. The programme celebrates the CEOs who have voluntarily accepted the task to coach young university lecturers to become future leaders, hence the tagline “Coached by the Pros”. Introduced in April 2017, selected candidates were placed at the respective CEOs’ offices, and these lecturers, referred to as fellows, were presented with a specific six-month assignment in order to embrace the corporate culture in managing a high-profile company.
