SEGi celebrates a momentous milestone – 45 years of evolution

2022 is a momentous year for SEGi University & Colleges. The institution was founded in 1977 under the name Systematic Business Training Centre and has since become one of Malaysia’s premier private higher education providers.

This achievement is even more significant as this year marks SEGi’s 45 years of solid presence in the past and present and the start of a new chapter in our continued commitment to offer quality education within reach of willing minds and natural talents.

SEGi is now home to approximately 20,000 students across five campuses in Klang Valley, Penang and Sarawak. The institution also has a significant ratio of international students from nearly 100 countries.

Over the last four decades, SEGi has been dedicated to providing quality employability-based international programmes on accessible terms, delivered through innovative technologies and student-centric learning techniques.

Leveraging its solid foundation, SEGi is moving towards digitalisation, diversification, and globalisation, adapting to constant market changes in today’s digital era. The institution will continue to develop effective compliance, enhance its sustainability and corporate responsibility efforts to benefit future generations.

“Facing today’s globalisation challenges, success is no longer about changing strategies more often, but having the agility to execute multiple strategies concurrently. Therefore, corporate managers must develop the right leadership and foster a healthy workplace culture to support the organisation’s digitalisation initiatives.”  Tan Sri Clement Hii Chii Kok, Group Managing Director
