Prof. Dr. Azrin Esmady Ariffin (Vice Chancellor, SEGi University) and Dato Rosli Yusof (Senior Vice President, Endowment & Communication, Management & Science University) were among the VIPs present at the dinner.

According to Mr. Mohd Radzlan Bin Jalaludin, “We are delighted to meet our alumni around the world. Now, we are happy to be able to connect with our alumni who are currently working in Malaysia and hear their stories.” “With the multiple roles they contributed to the society today, they will be a perfect role model to our current students to achieve the same success as they did. They are also the living proof that Malaysia offers a world-class education and indeed our higher education institutions have produced successful alumni.” he added.

Through this initiative, EMGS aims to empower the Study in Malaysia brand in Malaysia and anywhere in the world. EMGS looks forward to connect and host more events with our Global Alumni around the world.
