Study of, and opportunity for hands-on contributions to high quality social enterprises, corporate social responsibility programs, and prominent universities in the world’s most economically developed Muslim community. Malaysia is also a multi-ethnic society with communities of Chinese, Indian, and native peoples for which government, corporations, and social enterprises are developing strategies for social coherence. For over a hundred and fifty years, American management models have dominated the enterprises of the world. Now, as we enter the second decade of what some call the “post-American century,” it is vital for Americans and everyone else to open themselves to lessons that can be learned from others. Malaysia’s underappreciated economic success, as well as its large challenges in sustainability and social justice, make it a potential teacher for the rest of us.
