12 April 2021

Monash University Malaysia signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Amanah Ikhtiar Malaysia (AIM). Associate Professor Grace Hooi Yean Lee (Head of the Department of Economics) stated that her team would be working closely with AIM to develop a business entrepreneurship training program tailored to rural communities. The team will measure the program's effectiveness as findings will have important implications for entrepreneurship research, microfinance practitioners, and policymakers working toward women's empowerment.
