Since knowledge transfer in higher learning institution is essential for Malaysia to become a developed, high-income country by the year 2020, this study is conducted to investigate key factors affecting expatriates and Malaysian worker’s willingness to share knowledge in multinational companies in Malaysia. Useful recommendations are provided to the organizations management and educational practitioners to create a comfortable environment for effective knowledge transfer in multinational companies. Total 500 expatriates and Malaysian workers who are currently working in top multinational companies in Malaysia were required to answer the questionnaire of this study. The data analysis results indicate that the learning culture and resource availability positively influences knowledge transfer of both expatriates and Malaysian workers in multinational companies. Another important factor, long-term planning, positively influences the knowledge transfer of the Malaysian workers but it has no significant impact on the knowledge transfer among expatriate employees
