Several units such as the business innovation centre, training hotel, computer incubation areas, fully-equipped conference room, swimming pool and spacious student hostels are embedded within the complex.
The business innovation centre will also serve as a platform for the university’s industry partners and government departments.
Special courses and industry training programmes in branding and packaging will be conducted there on a regular basis.

As early as 1991, Limkokwing the university has been sensitive to market demands because it felt a strong responsibility to produce graduates who canare able to make a smooth transition from the classroom to the workplace.
The university is known for its quest to develop competent human capital resource to drive the Malaysian economy forward and, over the decades, has been working closely with the government to produce a new generation of graduates with the knowledge and skills to add value to the country’s workforce.
This involves reinventing the educational system to enable the Malaysian worker to maximise his or her human capital value through education and training.
The campus expansion project will enhance Limkokwing’s unique eco-system of “industry within university”, a strong feature of the University’s approach to learning.
In place at the university are franchise business units where students are able to acquire hands-on industry skills, as part of the learning and teaching method, designed to assist them later on in their chosen careers.
The university’s president Professor Emeritus Tan Sri Lim Kok Wing said it was producing graduates with the right education, industry skills and mindset to meet the challenges of the 21st century.
“This is the only university of its kind in the world that brings industry to the university.”
