KBU goes international with name change

KOLEJ Bandar Utama (KBU) is now known as KBU International College. According to Tan Sri Teo Soo Cheng, Chairman of its Board of Governors, KBU International College truly reflects the college’s development and growth since its establishment in 1990 when the enrolment then was mainly made up of local students, with only a handful of foreign students studying courses at certificate and diploma levels.  

“To date, KBU ‘s enrolment has grown to include foreign students from 30 countries and the programmes offered have been increased to include foreign twinning and franchised “3+0” degree programmes.  

“This, together with the name change, is testimony to KBU’s effort to meet our Government’s objective of establishing Malaysia as a Centre of Education Excellence for the region,” said Teo.  

He also thanked the Education Ministry for granting approval for the name change .  

“Our graduates have excelled academically both at KBU and at our partner universities in UK, as well as other universities in other countries. They have also been accepted for postgraduate studies locally and abroad. In our continuous efforts to improve on quality and holistic education, KBU has obtained accreditation from the National Accreditation Board (LAN) for the majority of the courses conducted, as well as Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) status from the Multimedia Development Corporation of Malaysia,” he said, adding that “KBU is also the first, and currently the only private college to have “3+0” engineering courses franchised from the Nottingham Trent University, UK,and accredited by the Board of Engineers, Malaysia.”
