SEGi University and Colleges first opened its doors as Systematic College in 1977 in the heart of Kuala Lumpur’s commercial district, offering globally recognised professional qualifications. Since then, SEGi has experienced significant growth by adapting and catering to an increasing demand for tertiary education and professional qualifications in Malaysia. Known as one of the largest private higher education providers in Malaysia, SEGi now serves 25,000 students in five major campuses located in Kota Damansara, Kuala Lumpur, Subang Jaya, Penang and Sarawak.
Today, the significance of climbing the career ladder in the industry is highly competitive, therefore SEGi now offers a new breakthrough method known as PACE or Professional and Continuing Education. SEGi PACE enables working adults to upgrade their qualification level whilst accommodating their work schedule, hence fulfilling work-life balance.
Malaysia is a multi-ethnic and multi-cultural society with more than half the population of ethnic Malays, and large minorities of Malaysian Chinese, Malaysian Indians, and indigenous peoples. Since its independence, Malaysia has had one of the best economic records in Asia, with its GDP growing at an average of 6.5% per annum for almost 50 years. The economy has traditionally been fuelled by its natural resources, but is expanding in the sectors of science, tourism, commerce and medical tourism. Today, Malaysia is a newly industrialised market economy, ranked third largest in Southeast Asia and 29th largest in the world. It is a founding member of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, the East Asia Summit and the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, and a member of Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, the Commonwealth of Nations, and the Non-Aligned Movement.
