WHEN First City University College (formerly KBU International College) was established in 1990, the institution had already envisioned that it would be in a position to offer students an exclusive environment or ecosystem where a student could study, work and live.
In other words, students could chart their futures beyond their graduation when they join the institution.
This vision is made possible because First City UC was established by the First Nationwide Group, the owner and developer of the Bandar Utama township and commercial district in Petaling Jaya, Selangor.
The bustling Bandar Utama City Centre (BUCC) is currently the location of choice for many commercial and business entities including multinational companies. BUCC is also home to the Group-owned,1Utama Shopping Centre, Centrepoint Bandar Utama and two hotels, One World Hotel and Avante Hotel. There are also many commercial buildings and office towers within the vicinity of BUCC such as the multi-dimensional First Avenue, 1 Tech Park, Menara IBM and KPMG Tower which are all tagged with the coveted MSC status and 1 Powerhouse, the 28-storey centre for business and commerce.
It is for this reason that all programmes currently offered at First City UC are not only industry-driven but cater to the needs of the various business or commercial sectors in the vicinity of BUCC where First City UC is located.
First City UC currently offers programmes in Business, Computing/Information Technology, Design and Built Environment, Engineering, Hospitality and Tourism Management, and Mass Communication.
This exclusive environment or ecosystem for a student to “Study, Work and Live” enables students to complete their globally recognised qualifications at First City UC and upon graduation, seek employment opportunities which are abundantly available within Bandar Utama itself. Graduates of First City UC can also opt for Bandar Utama as their ideal place to live, where various housing and residential options are made available and accessible to them.
In a nutshell, students who study at First City UC can chart their futures right from the outset. When they graduate, they are privileged to be part of the business community networks at BUCC and the exciting living community of Bandar Utama if they choose to remain where they are after their graduation.
