MSU Heritage Walk Series

The MSU Heritage Walk Series is a major mentoring flagship programme organised by Management and Science University (MSU). The main objectives of this programme are to instil cultural awareness in the millennials and to promote the uniqueness of Malaysia’s attractions, which are rich with cultural, historical, and ethnic heritage. The event strengthens the bond among mentors, mentees, and alumni while creating a space for professional networking during the event.

The MSU Heritage Walk Series began with the Kuala Lumpur Heritage Walk in 2018; it was followed by the Shah Alam Heritage Walk Virtual Edition in 2021 and the Putrajaya Iconic Tour in 2022. The MSU Heritage Walk Series also aimed to support Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), which include SDG 3 (good health and well-being), SDG 4 (quality education), SDG 11 (sustainable cities and communities), and SDG 17 (partnerships for goals).

Top 3 Learnings

  1. Collaboration is key: Implementing a heritage walk project requires collaboration among various stakeholders, including local communities, tourism boards, historians, and tour guides. It is important to ensure that everyone is aligned with the project objectives and understands their role in achieving them.
  2. Planning is crucial: Planning is a crucial aspect and includes developing a detailed itinerary, identifying key landmarks and attractions, coordinating logistics, and ensuring the safety of participants. It is important to plan well in advance and anticipate potential challenges that may arise.
  3. Adaptability and flexibility: While planning is essential, it is also important to be adaptable and flexible in response to unexpected changes or challenges that may arise during the implementation of the project. Being prepared to adjust the itinerary or make changes to logistics can help ensure the success of the MSU Heritage Walk Series project.
