On December 4, 2007 Malaysia’s Deputy Hihger Education Minister Datuk Ong Tee Keat and the Danish ambassador Borge Petersen witnessed the signing of a memorandum of agreement (MoA) between SEGi College (SEGi) and The Business Academy West, Denmark (BA West) in exchanging students of both universities.
The agreement will see SEGi students pursuing one year of foundation studies in Malaysia before going to Esbjerg, Denmark, to complete their bachelor’s degree and BA West will be sending Danish students to Malaysia to complete several modules at SEGi.
“It is good for young people to explore such opportunities, especially when many countries in the EU are expanding economies,” said Deputy Hihger Education Minister Datuk Ong Tee Keat.
SEG International chief operating officer and SEGi principal Lee Kok Cheng said this exchange not only promoted education tourism, but also adhered to the Government’s call to open doors to international recruitment. Ong added that the signing of the MoA showed the level of confidence and trust the Danes had in the quality of Malaysian education.
