He believes “SEGi will overcome the current economic uncertainties to produce many more talented and highly marketable graduates who are highly sought after in the local and international industries”. He also added that “with these initiatives, not only will SEGi University accomplish its prime objective of becoming the preferred private university in the region, but it will also assist the Ministry of Higher Education to reach up to its aspirations of providing the best education in the world”.
The Minister took the opportunity to congratulate and acknowledge SEGi University for being admitted into the QS (Quacquarelli Symonds) World University list and named as ‘The first Malaysian University that earned 5 Stars for prioritizing society’s needs in Malaysia’, according to the 2016 QS Stars result.
