After Thailand, Dubai and China, the fourth overseas FDP in the series was held at Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on October 29th – 30th, 2012. 
 
The programme was jointly designed by FORE School of Management and the School of Management, University Sains of Malaysia. 
 
The aim was to have a country specific, interactive exchange between faculties of two institutions on issues related to Malaysian transformation agenda, economy, trade and business practices. The Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation and the Islamic University of Malaysia also participated in the programme with their inputs on trade and culture related inputs respectively.
 
Outlining the overall objectives, the President, FORE said that besides inputs on country specific issues, it was important to develop the members of faculty as a strong team that will take FORE School of management to greater heights through increased cooperation and inter-disciplinary collaborations. Experiencing international locations firsthand through industry and academic exchange cannot be replaced by any other experience.
 
The FDP was divided into 4 sessions spread over two days. The session details are given below:
