History of Multimedia University
In 1996 the government of Malaysia was looking for methods to liberalise higher education in the nation, and to involve the private education sector in the development of this critical sector of human capital building. As such, the Ministry of Education was looking for an established private company to kick off the pilot project for university building. In October 1996, the then Telekom Malaysia was given the distinction by the Ministry of Education to set up the first private university in Malaysia. It was considered an honour to be given such trust by the government to spearhead the privatization of higher education. Being a natural extension of the existing ITTM campuses that TM already runs, TM accepted the invitation and Universiti Telekom was established in Melaka.
With its diverse mix of ethnicities and tropical weather all year long, Malaysia is a place unlike any other. Located in Southeast Asia, the country is a melting pot of culture, food and celebrations, besides having blessed with world-famous tourist attractions all over the country.
Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, is a vibrant and bustling metropolis that never sleeps. With Petronas Twin Towers as the major landmark decorating its skyline, the city also boasts a well-connected public transportation, besides being one of the greatest shopping destinations in the region.
