Why Malaysia?

Malaysia is one of the best places for students to do an internship. The business sector is booming and it is also called the Silicon Valley of Southeast Asia.  Much like the Netherlands, Malaysia is also regarded as a gateway, providing entry into the ASEAN region.  Most companies are used to multicultural teams and doing international business.  Housing and primary needs are relatively affordable, especially in comparison to the Netherlands.  Additionally, Malaysia is a great country to explore during the weekends, or after your internship, with plenty of white sandy beaches, great underwater life, the largest jungle in the world, and an impressive concrete jungle.  Many students also use Malaysia as a hub to explore the rest of (Southeast) Asia and Australia!

English as a business language

Malaysia is a multicultural country and most locals are fluent in at least three languages! English is widely spoken throughout the nation and is the most common language in the Business Environment. You will have the ability to improve your Business English in Malaysia. In addition to that, communication is easy and finding your way to the restaurant or train station will not be an issue.
