What Malaysian Graduates Expect to Earn

Data gathered from Malaysia’s largest and longest-running graduate recruitment study highlights the expected starting salaries (per month) by 18 key industry sectors.

In a six-month period, more than 20,770 Malaysian students and fresh graduates from universities in Malaysia and overseas took to the polls to vote for their employers of choice through the Malaysia Graduate Barometer. Just like in the years before, the annual study sought to gather the opinions of the respondents through an online survey hosted at www.malaysias100.com. Students and fresh graduates were also given the option to fill out hardcopies of survey forms across major university campuses in the country.
