SEGi University

The history of the SEGi Group dates back to 1977 when it established its first Systematic College in the heart of Kuala Lumpur's commercial district by offering professional qualifications such as LCCI, ACCA and ABE.

With the increasing demand for higher academic and professional qualifications in Malaysia since the 1970s, the private higher education industry has been experiencing significant growth. In tandem with the industry, the Group (formerly known as Systematic Group) grew considerably and expanded its range of courses and market reach through the acquisition of more colleges as well as by setting up new colleges.

In line with the increasing demand for quality programmes delivered locally, it wasn't long before the Group expanded their programme offerings from providing only professional programmes to a range of diploma programmes. Systematic Group quickly become a leader in offering quality business programmes and was a household name among Malaysians.

On 16 May 1995, the Systematic Group was listed on the KLSE Second Board under the name Systematic Education Group Berhad.

In 2001, the Group embarked on an extensive corporate exercise which saw the merger of 14 major colleges and a number of schools and education centres to form the new SEGi Group.

On 23 June 2004, SEG International Bhd (SEGi), then listed on the second board of the Bursa Malaysia Securities Bhd (Bursa Malaysia), announced that it had obtained approval from the Securities Commission to transfer its listing to the main board of Bursa Malaysia.

For more than 10 years, the Group has been actively recruiting international students from over 50 countries such as China, countries in the Indian continent, the Middle East, Korea, as well as various African and East European countries. International students currently make up 10% of the total student population.

The year 2006 marked a new beginning for the SEGi Group as it undertook a merger and consolidation exercise to position itself under the single brand name of "SEGi College".

In 2007, SEGi earned another feather in its cap when it opened the doors of its new RM200 million flagship campus strategically located at a 10-acre site located in Kota Damansara, Selangor. The purpose-built campus, housing full-fledged academic, research and recreational facilities, provides a conducive learning environment for up to 12,000 students.
