International Management Training Program

Swinburne Sarawak International Mobility Program is pleased to invites participants from all around the world to learn new skill and knowledge accompanied by the rich biodiversity and culture in Sarawak.

The rainforest in Sarawak is one of the oldest and most diverse in the world. Kuching, the capital of Sarawak, has been described as one of the most liveable cities in Southeast Asia. Rich in history with old-world charms blended into 21st century modernity, the city is home to more than half a million people.

Sarawak is also the most culturally diverse. Its 29 ethnic communities are well-known for their friendliness and hospitality. Each community practices their own customs and traditions and nowhere else in Malaysia can such colourful diversity be found.

Building on its strong mining, manufacturing and service economy, Sarawak has embarked on its Digital Economy Strategy to spur its next phase of economic growth. The digital strategy has led to many public and private initiatives which are intensifying rapidly.

Upon satisfactory completion of the program, participants will be awarded a Certificate of Participation by Swinburne University of Technology Sarawak Campus.
