Win­ning streak con­tin­ues

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - EDUCATION GUIDE -

FOR more than 35 years, SEGi Univer­sity Group (SEGi) has equipped grad­u­ates from di­verse back­grounds with ex­cep­tional ed­u­ca­tion for ca­reer achieve­ment and per­sonal suc­cess.

The group first opened its doors as Sys­tem­atic Col­lege in 1977 in the heart of Kuala Lumpur’s com­mer­cial dis­trict, of­fer­ing pro­fes­sional qual­i­fi­ca­tions.

Since then, the group has ex­pe­ri­enced sig­nif­i­cant growth by adapt­ing and cater­ing to an in­creas­ing de­mand for higher aca­demic and pro­fes­sional qual­i­fi­ca­tions in Malaysia.

To­day, the group is one of the largest pri­vate higher ed­u­ca­tion providers in Malaysia with five ma­jor cam­puses lo­cated in Kota Da­mansara, Subang Jaya, Kuala Lumpur, Pe­nang and Sarawak.

SEGi is con­stantly on a quest to max­imise its stu­dents’ nat­u­ral tal­ents and po­ten­tial with qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion.

This will lead to SEGi grad­u­ates who can be key in­dus­try lead­ers to con­trib­ute to na­tion-build­ing.

This is why SEGi en­deav­ours to reach out to wider seg­ments of so­ci­ety with a broad range of pro­grammes that in turn have earned SEGi nu­mer­ous awards.

Re­cently, SEGi was awarded gold for the Reader’s Digest Trusted Brand Award 2013, un­der the cat­e­gory of Pri­vate Uni­ver­si­ties/ Col­leges.

The Reader’s Digest Trusted Brands Sur­vey has a well-es­tab­lished rep­u­ta­tion as the pre­mier con­sumer-based and in­ter­na­tional mea­sure of brand pref­er­ence.

It iden­ti­fies trusted Asian brands and pro­vides an ob­jec­tive and re­li­able ref­er­ence for con­sumers through­out the re­gion.

SEGi also won the sil­ver tro­phy for the ed­u­ca­tion and learn­ing cat­e­gory in the Pu­tra Brand Awards 2013. The Pu­tra Brand Awards fea­tures the coun­try’s top brands as voted by 6,000 re­spon­dents, mak­ing this one of the lead­ing con­sumer sur­veys in Malaysia.

Not be­ing one that will rest on its laurels, SEGi is stead­fast in its quest to make ed­u­ca­tion ac­ces­si­ble to all and will con­tinue to raise the bar for ed­u­ca­tion ex­cel­lence in Malaysia.

Its pur­suit to en­able the best in its stu­dents has been no­ticed by var­i­ous par­ties.

The gov­ern­ment has ap­pointed SEGi to be the leader in pro­vid­ing qual­i­fied early childhood care and ed­u­ca­tion (ECCE) prac­ti­tion­ers in the coun­try.

SEGi is also se­lected to be the project leader to train and de­velop in­ter­na­tional stu­dents from sev­eral coun­tries un­der the gov­ern­ment’s Skill­sMalaysia In­ter­na­tional Tech­ni­cal Ed­u­ca­tion and Vo­ca­tional Train­ing Pro­gramme (Skill­sMalaysia IN­VITE).

SEGi has built strong global con­nec­tions with well-known in­ter­na­tional uni­ver­si­ties, of­fer­ing gradu- ates a va­ri­ety of in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised qual­i­fi­ca­tions that can be fully com­pleted lo­cally.

Many large cor­po­ra­tions that are in­dus­try lead­ers are now work­ing with SEGi to cre­ate added value to stu­dents.

Stu­dents can have op­por­tu­ni­ties to in­tern or work at th­ese cor­po­ra­tions in or­der for them to learn from the best in the in­dus­try.

Re­cent de­vel­op­ments in the SEGi Univer­sity Group in­clude the for­ma­tion of Cen­tres of Ex­cel­lence (CoE). SEGi aims to build upon strong foun­da­tions and trans­form from a gen­er­al­ist in­sti­tu­tion into spe­cial­ist CoEs.

By fo­cus­ing on only a few ar­eas of strength, the CoE will be able to de­liver a su­pe­rior ed­u­ca­tion ex­pe­ri­ence.

So far, there are five CoEs: Hos­pi­tal­ity and Tourism as well as Busi­ness at SEGi Col­lege KL, Early Childhood Care and Ed­u­ca­tion as well as Cre­ative Arts and De­sign at SEGi Col­lege Subang Jaya, and Tech­nol­ogy and In­no­va­tion at SEGi Univer­sity.

All the CoEs have pro­duced stu­dents who have won var­i­ous awards at state and na­tional lev­els in their re­spec­tive fields of study.
