Among the aspirations of Malaysia Education Blueprint 2015-2025 (Higher Education) or MEB (HE) 2015-2025 is to produce balanced and holistic graduates with entrepreneurial mindsets and to nurture 'job creators' rather than just grooming 'job seekers'. These aspirations have been the basis of Entrepreneurship Action Plan for Higher Education Institutions 2016-2020 (EAP-HEIs 2016-2020) and will continue to be the essence of EAP-HEIs 2021-2025. The future of entrepreneurship in Malaysia is promising. More Malaysian entrepreneurs are keen to strengthen their business ventures through innovation and technology while the government is placing more effort in transforming the country into an entrepreneurial nation. At the HEIs level, various entrepreneurship-related activities and initiatives, including strategic collaborations with government agencies and private corporations, have been organised to promote entrepreneurship as well as produce entrepreneurial graduates and more graduate entrepreneurs. The objectives are to instill entrepreneurship awareness, catalyse action research towards improving conditions and practices of the entrepreneurship education and environments, and further enhance entrepreneurship-related research development and commercialisation. The programmes were successful in which thriving graduate entrepreneurs have been born; many of whom have become the notable chief executive officers of some well reputable companies. Nevertheless, continuous efforts must be carried out to address the issues and challenges at the local and global levels. In sum, EAP-HEIs 2021-2025 is initiated to closely monitor the challenges and opportunities which have emerged in global entrepreneurial seting as well as in fast-changing local entrepreneurial landscape, and eventually, set to produce graduates with entrepreneurial mindset and graduate entrepreneurs who are competitive and sustainable.
