Kuala Lumpur, August 15, 2012

Fujitsu, Asia’s No. 1 ICT brand, is calling Malaysian working professionals to submit their application for a scholarship to attend the Global Leaders for Innovation and Knowledge Program offered by the Fujitsu-Japan-America Institute of Management Science (Fujitsu-JAIMS) Foundation. The course will be conducted on-site Fujitsu’s multi-campus network that covers four different countries including Japan, Hawaii (US), Thailand, and Singapore

The Global Leaders for Innovation and Knowledge Program is a 3.5 months long international leadership management certification program that is positioned as a ‘continual education’ experience for working professionals.

Charles Lew, the President of Fujitsu Malaysia says that the program is designed to train students in the knowledge creation process and to develop leadership and management techniques for potential business leaders in Asia.
