University status for IMI Partner

13 April 2022

A big congratulations to our Malaysian partner school Tunku Abdul Rahman University College (TARUC) who have been officially awarded 'University' status...

At IMI, we always look to partner with institutes that share our values of academic excellence and quality.

Since 2016, we have had a partnership with TARUC allowing their students to transfer to IMI to complete their degree study with us here in Switzerland.

The status upgrade to university reflects the excellent academic reputation TARUC enjoys in Malaysia and the high-quality of graduate they produce.

Formed in 1969 and named after Malaysia's first prime minister Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj, the institute was upgraded to a university college in 2013 before taking the final step to full university level in 2022.

Going forward they will be known as Tunku Abdul Rahman University of Management and Technology (TAR UMT) to reflect their new classification.

Announcing this new status, MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong said: "This upgrade to university status is a historic achievement for the university and we pledge to continue serving the society, the country, and the region with dynamism and excellence."

We would like to pass on our congratulations to the management team, faculty and students at TAR UMT for this fantastic achievement and wish them every success as they continue to develop and strengthen their academic offering.
