LSE has a longstanding relationship with Malaysia and has Malaysian alumni dating back to the 1950s. Around 290 students a year from Malaysia come to study at LSE and there are now over 1,500 LSE alumni living in Malaysia.
The LSE Alumni Group in Malaysia was founded in 1985 and is one of the largest alumni groups in Asia. The alumni group organises a range of intellectual, social, networking and professional development activities in Kuala Lumpur in which alumni can participate. The group has hosted lectures and panel discussion events with LSE’s academics including Danny Quah, Professor of Economics and Dr Razeen Sally, former lecturer in International Relations.
LSE’s alumni in Malaysia cover a wide range of roles in academia, business, civil society and government. LSE enjoys loyal support from its alumni in Malaysia and the group gave generously during the School’s last fundraising campaign for its flagship New Academic Building in Lincoln’s Inn Fields and more recently we have received donations from Malaysian alumni towards 32 Lincoln’s Inn Fields, the School’s new home for Economics.
