EXOP 2018: Experience Sharing


Executives Overseas Program (EXOP2018) was held on 10 - 17 April 2018 in Tokyo, Japan with the theme "Incorporationg Japanese Leadership Traits Into Future Malaysian Leader". The program was implemented in collaboration with a strategic partner, The Association for Overseas Technical Cooperation and Sustainable Partnership (AOTS) in Kenshu, Tokyo. AOTS is an organization focused on human resource development globally aimed at promoting cooperation with developing countries.

Participation in the program is open to the Public University (UA) category and the Statutory Bodies and this year 30 people (including a secretariat) have already taken place in Tokyo. UPM is represented by:

  1. En Abd Razak Ahmad (Head of Designer) - Publisher
  2. 2. Pn Farah Nurzakiah Ahmad Tajuddin (Teacher of Language) - Center for Language and Language Development
  3. 3. Pn Norazlin Yusof (Information Technology Officer) - Information and Communication Development Center (iDEC)


Given the overwhelming response, however, since the AOTS has limited participation, the program is only attended by 30 people (including a secretariat). Participants are 20 from the Public University and 10 from the Statutory Bodies.
