Message from the Chancellor
“The combination of our strong academic reputation, with the emphasis on employability and the students’ experience have brought immense success, winning multiple awards in the past year.”
Yam Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Syed Anwar Jamalullail
2017 was a successful year for SEGi. Our students’ academic performance remained strong at all levels – diploma, undergraduate and postgraduate. We are also proud of our academic and corporate staff for performing well throughout the year.
SEGi has been producing the next generation of leaders in diverse fields since our establishment in 1977. Moving forward after more than 40 years, SEGi is committed to continuing its effort to be a strong higher education provider nationally and globally. We must anticipate and respond to the growing challenges by focusing on research, teaching and scholarship.
We are driven by a vision of success and excellence and share the vision of a future bolstered by employment-ready graduates from SEGi. True to our mission to be the premier regional higher education provider, SEGi was recognised for its educational excellence in outstanding achievement as the only higher education group with the highest 6 Stars rating in the 2016/2017 Malaysia Quality Evaluation System (MyQuest) ratings. SEGi College Subang Jaya, SEGi College Penang and SEGi College Sarawak achieved the highest 6 Stars (outstanding) rating while SEGi College Kuala Lumpur received the 5 Stars (excellent) rating.
In line with our mission, SEGi will focus on building & strengthening our graduates’ capability and prepare our graduates to be leaders of tomorrow, ready for challenges in a diverse economic system. Our academic and professional staff have carried out a host of initiatives, which are critical to the success of this mission.
SEGi University launched a new degree programme, Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Architecture to meet the rising demand of architects in our country. The University also achieved a major milestone by producing the first Doctor of Philosophy in Management graduate in 2017.
None of this would be possible without the hard work and dedication from all our staff. In conclusion, on behalf of my colleagues at SEGi, I present the annual report, recording SEGi’s continued progress, efforts and achievements in the past year. I look forward to elevating SEGi to a higher level not only on the local stage but also the global stage.
