DuPont Malaysia Partners With Monash University Malaysia To Promote Good Governance

DuPont Malaysia signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with Monash University Malaysia to collaborate in jointly nurturing undergraduates on the values of ethical behaviour, shaping them for success in a global economy where corporate governance and individual accountability are fundamental enablers. Ong Ewe Hock, Managing Director, DuPont Malaysia and Professor Helen Bartlett, President and Pro Vice-Chancellor, Monash University Malaysia were present to sign the MOA.

Ong Ewe Hock, managing director DuPont Malaysia, said, “We are pleased to be given this noble opportunity to shape the ethical values of undergraduates through this collaboration with the Monash University Malaysia.” 

“One of the key events under this collaboration is the lecture and workshop series on business ethics and ethical behaviour.” 

“Students will be exposed to real business ethics cases and their views and judgment on these cases will be enhanced during the workshop session to improve their understanding and internalisation of good ethical values which are essential for success as they face opportunities and challenges in the real world after graduation.” Ong added.

Professor Bartlett, meanwhile said, “working together collaboratively and engaging with industry is essential to produce workforce-ready graduates. The partnership with DuPont will help equip our students with good governance in business, which in turn ensures they become responsible and effective global citizens, with strong ethical values."

Under the MOA, DuPont is committing to a two-year lecturing and workshop series for Monash University Malaysia undergraduates where students will have opportunities to practice ethical decision making process based on actual business ethics cases.
