Comprehensive Strategic Agreement between UNIQLO and University of Malaya|ユニクロとマラヤ大の包括的戦略協定

Late last year, the top Malaysian university and UNIQLO entered into an in-depth and comprehensive strategic partnership. I am not involved, by the way. LOL.

If I were to use a Japanese analogy, it would be like the partnership between the University of Tokyo and GAP. The purpose of the partnership is “comprehensive leadership development with the Faculty of Economics,” and it seems that by throwing the Dept’s undergraduates and graduates into UNIQLO and having them actually engage in various activities, they will gain insight into the retail industry and develop leadership skills in the field. The company will in return use this to expand itself in Malaysia and ASEAN countries.

I think this will be a great engine for UNIQLO, which is about to aggressively bloom in the ASEAN region. I think they have their eyes on a good place.

昨年末に、マレーシアのトップ大学とユニクロが、かなり踏み込んだ総合的な提携関係を結びました。ちなみに私は関係していません。笑。

日本で例えれば、東京大学とGAPが関係を結んだみたいな感じですね。目的は「経済学部との包括的なリーダーシップ育成協力」とのことで、学部生や卒業生をユニクロに放り込み、実際に諸々の活動に携わってもらうことで、リテール産業への洞察や、現場でのリーダーシップ育成に励むみたいです。そして、会社はそれをMalaysiaやASEANでの展開に活用する。

これから、ますますASEANで気炎を吐こうとしているユニクロ にとっては、1つの大きなエンジンになるでしょうね。いいところに目をつけていると思います。
