AiXChange : CEO@Faculty Programme (Learn From The Pros) is an initiative implemented by the Ministry of Higher Education in line with the Malaysia Education Blueprint 2015-2025 (Higher Education). The main objective of the CEO@Faculty Programme is to intensify the participation from the industrial sector as part of the higher education system through the sharing of experiences and expertise from industry leaders. CEO as an icon for students would be able to improve the existing curriculum through the sharing of knowledge, experiences and best practices from the CEOs to formulate a new integrated assessment via holistic learning. It can also improve graduates employability by enhancing students’ learning experience and reducing the mismatch in supply and demand of graduates.

One of the responsibilities of the appointed CEOs is to share their experiences and knowledge of the corporate world with UMP members of staff and students. Other than that, they are expected to engage with the students in order to enhance the students’ graduate employability and personal development in a more holistic manner.
