This makes SEGi the first university to receive such strong recognition for prioritising society’s needs in Malaysia.
“These recognitions are testimonies of SEGi’s commitment to providing high-quality education. This marks the most wins ever received by a single private institution. We are proud and humbled by these achievements which further inspire us to continuously innovate and improve our programmes to ensure we produce industry-relevant graduates”, said Ms Hew Moi Lan, Group Executive Director and Group Chief Executive Officer of SEG International Berhad.
SETARA is a rating system that is aimed at improving the quality of teaching and learning at higher learning institutions. Similarly, MyQUEST is the Malaysian Quality Evaluation System for Private Colleges. Carried out every two years since 2011, MyQuest rates private colleges from one (poor) to six stars (excellent). The 6-stars rating is the highest accolade a private college could achieve in the biennial evaluation. On the international front, the QS Asia University Rankings which is published annually highlights the top universities in Asia each year.
