INTRODUCTION

As Malaysia aims to become a fully industrialized nation by 2020, Malaysian businesses and corporate sectors have to provide the impetus and drive for this movement forward. Globalization and K- Economy require Malaysian industries to constantly upgrade their knowledge, competency and skills. This will create an ever-expanding demand for technical and managerial skills and talents.
