Scholars and delegates from many prestigious universities were invited to the university. Besides KMU’s alliance university, National Sun Yet-san University, many well-known universities in the Asia-Pacific region participated in this great event.
Delegates from these universities, which are ranked high in QS World University Rankings, spoke on a variety of topics, including strategic higher education development by positioning and branding, regional development to anchor a university’s brands, and covering experience-sharing in case-study for the development of higher education.
Among the invited speakers was Professor Er Meng Hwa, vice president of Nanyang Technological University (NTU), who gave a splendid speech on how NTU managed to reach as high as 13th globally in the rankings league.
