“From a pioneer in Malaysian private education as one of the first private colleges in Malaysia to have its own purpose-built campus to receiving a ‘University College’ status in 2010, KDU has evidently established itself as one the leading private institutions in Malaysia. On behalf of the UOWGE team, we are very excited to begin this new chapter with KDU as they have now become part of the UOW family”, said Ms. Marisa Mastroianni, Managing Director & Group CEO of UOWGE. She added that both KDU and UOW share the same values and spirit of innovation in producing career-ready graduates to meet real world needs.

In November 2018, Paramount Corporation Berhad (Paramount) entered into a strategic partnership with Australian public university, University of Wollongong (UOW), to enhance its tertiary education business. Considered one of the best modern universities in the world with an outstanding reputation for its learning environments across a broad range of disciplines, University of Wollongong, is among the top 250 ranked universities worldwide, and 16th in the world in the QS Top 50 under 50 Rankings 2019 (a ranking for universities under 50 years old).
 
 
KDU and UOW are committed to the best interests of the students and staff, and are working together to ensure the smooth entry of UOW into KDU, and to enhance:
  • International student growth and student mobility
  • Integrated learning and student employability
  • Student entrepreneurship via supported start-up enterprise programmes
  • Positive employee relations and continuing staff development
 
This auspicious day marked an important milestone for KDU, beginning this bold new chapter with UOW. With strong alignment between missions, values and course offerings, KDU and UOW aims to pave the way of excellence by providing a high-quality educational experience to nurture graduates with a truly international outlook to become future global leaders.
