EmPOWER Programme

EmPOWER is an innovative programme that encourages its students to hone their soft skills. It is a four-level structured programme that is aimed at future-proofing graduates, to unleash their potential and to prepare them to stand out and have an impact in a highly uncertain world.

Leadership Development

Four levels of leadership development are available to students throughout their studies at Heriot-Watt University Malaysia. The overall objective is to develop students' leadership through experiential learning in six focused domains. Students can develop competencies in Leading Self, Leading Teams, Leading Communities, and Leading Enterprises.

Points at each level are awarded according to the nature of leadership training undertaken or complexity of skills demonstrated. These points are accumulated for achievements made at any of the four levels.

This can be done concurrently, no need to complete one level before moving to the next! An EmPOWER record of achievement and an EmPOWER certificate will be issued on completion of each level. These can help our students stand out from the crowd in today’s competitive job market.
