Malvern interrnational academy malaysia historyOUR HISTORY

Malvern International Academy (formerly known as Kasturi College International) had its humble beginning as Mahkota College when it was launched in 1988 by the then Education Minister, Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim to provide a superior learning experience and nurture students to become independent and life-long learners. Malvern has global operations in UK and Singapore as well. In Malaysia, we offer programmes in various fields of Business Management, Accounting, Finance, Information Technology, Hotel Management, skills-based training vocational programmes, and English language studies. We are also a leading accredited centre for professional programmes such as ACCA, CFA® Program, CAT, FRM® and LCCI. Driven by the growth in the education industry in the eighties, Malvern’s vision was to become an education institution that would develop professionals and scholars to drive the country forward as a knowledge-based society. This vision has become a reality as over the past 30 years, we have produced more than 50,000 graduates in various professional and academic programmes.

In the early years as an education institution, our focus was on the delivery of professional qualifications such as ACCA, CIM, AEB and CAT from the United Kingdom, in Malaysia. Over the years, we have become a leader in the delivery of professional qualifications and currently, we are a major player in producing quality graduates for the employment market.

In the year 2006, we expanded our product portfolio by introducing Academic Programmes. These include home grown products, such as the Diploma in Business Studies, Diploma in Business Information System, Diploma in Computer Technology, Diploma in Accountancy, Diploma in Hotel Management, Degree Foundation in Business and Certificate in Business Studies. On the vocational level, Malvern has skills-based programmes in the areas of Culinary, and Food & Beverage. In pursuit of academic excellence, we partnered with the University of Wales (which was founded by Royal Charter) to offer our students both the undergraduate and the postgraduate programmes. We have since produced 25 graduates with first class honours for the Bachelor of Business Administration programme, and 2 Distinctions and 2 Merits for the MBA programme. This is testimony to our quality in the delivery of the University of Wales programmes.

Malvern also has a very close working relationship with the Ministry of Higher Education and its agencies and departments such as Private Education Department, Malaysian Qualifying Agencies (MQA) and the National Higher Education Fund Corporation (PTPTN). All of our programmes are accredited by MQA and recognised by the Public Services Department (JPA).
