The test used to determine the result of this study is consists of unit root test, co-integration test and Granger Causality. This study found four co-integration test by using the Johansen and Juselius Co-integration test to determine the co-integration vectors. This method has achieved the specific objective of this study by having at least one co-integration vector to determine the long run relationship between the dependent variable and the independent variable. The study found that school enrollment for secondary education and tertiary education has a bidirectional long run relationship toward the GDP per capita and school enrollment for secondary education has a unidirectional short run relationship toward labour force which contributes to the GDP per capita. Hence, the capital development and labour force has a positive relationship toward economic growth in Malaysia while education expenditure has a negative relationship toward economic growth in Malaysia. Therefore, Malaysia government in need to implement and introduce a new ways and solutions in increasing and enhancing the quality of education system in producing a multi intellectual capital in contributing toward economic growth.
