Abstract

The rise of corporate education can be attributed to changes in higher education worldwide in the 1990s, when many countries bore witness to restructuring and reforms. In Malaysia, this restructuring process saw the corporatisation of public universities, rise in private higher education, increasing interest in quality assurance as well as growing awareness of the importance of lifelong and workplace learning. One of the significant parameters of these new dynamics is information and communication technology (ICT), which allows for many corporations to address education and training through online platforms and Web-based tools. The success of some of the most prominent “corporate universities” – many in the United States of America like Motorola University and McDonald’s Hamburger University, can also be attributed to the inability of traditional higher education to meet current workplace needs, a phenomenon also common to many other countries.
