Johor is poised to be the new education hub in Malaysia. Strategically located at the southern tip of Peninsular Malaysia, Johor is ready to attract students from all over the world. Significant projects in this sector include EduCity, Bandar Seri Alam City of Knowledge and Pagoh University City which house internationally renowned campuses from prestigious educational institutions. Together with existing highly reputable local educational institutions such as University of Technology Malaysia and University Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia, Johor is well positioned to become the choice destination for renowned players and international students.

On the other hand, equipping local residents with the skills companies need and providing a conducive environment for highly educated workers is seen as crucial to the state’s development goals. As such, the state government and IRDA are working with the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Human Resources to develop talent in Johor and ensure residents have the skills to meet investors’ needs. It is also striving to improve the capability and capacity of local training institutes, which are benefitting from the renewed emphasis on technical and vocational education and training (TVET) at the national level.
