April 19, 2013

A global infrastructure company which has invested more than RM 1 billion in Malaysia is also investing in talent development with INTI. General Electric (GE) has selected INTI as one of its partners for its Global Talent Development Outreach Programme, which brings together senior GE Human Resource leaders from around the world for a series of interactive talks, workshops and activities targeted for students to harness leadership and communication skills in a fun and engaging manner.


Among the programme’s presenters is Miho Tanimoto, GE HR Leader, HR Development Programme, USA. In the programme, students are introduced to GE’s exceptional approach in leadership development and best practices as well as ways to project a professional image and etiquette. They also engage in small group activities under the mentorship of GE’s HR experts to promote their interpersonal and communication skills.

Over the past several years INTI has collaborated with over 70 multinational and Malaysian companies on projects and other initiatives that have brought tremendous benefits to students. INTI’s students have undertaken 125 innovative projects in the past year in collaboration with industry partners. Real employer projects ranging from “Ways of doing business and how to setup a company in Myanmar” to “Development of a research book that identifies the changes shaping Malaysia’s marketing landscape and consumer behavior trends” were introduced in the classroom to help students develop problem solving, collaboration, communication and critical thinking skills.

To bring out a student’s full potential, individual development is emphasized at INTI and this involves the student’s journey of transformation to become a competent graduate via a self-discovery and development plan using personality assessment tools, industry talks, and career camps. Students build self-confidence and communication skills via specially-developed General Education modules. Individual development also involves coaching and mentorship programmes, grooming workshops, and on campus recruitment which has seen over 180 students offered jobs by top employers over the past year.
