The development of a more wholistic education for Malaysian youths has recently come into focus again with the launching of the 9th Malaysia Plan. Currently half way through Vision 2020, the Government has reviewed its efforts in achieving this Vision - to be an industrialised nation by year 2020. Through the years, this vision has had to be updated due to the increasingly globalised and competitive markets we face and the rapid developments in ICT. Thus, Malaysian graduates need to be equipped with both generic skills and technical know-how to ensure they are able to contribute effectively to achieving the mission. The experience of Institut Bank-Bank Malaysia (IBBM) – the professional and educational body for the financial services industry in Malaysia – in the fostering of generic skills, will be highlighted.
