Kuala Lumpur Metropolitan University College certainly has come a long way since its inception in 2006. What started as a Cosmopoint College in Kuala Lumpur quickly grew to become one of the fastest growing University Colleges in Malaysia. Thousands of students and graduates of KLMUC are now contributing greatly to the nation in various capacities – in business, in creative arts, in restaurants and hotels all over Malaysia. Whilst it has faced tremendous challenges in the past 7 years, KLMUC is now back on track and it’s charting a new course for the next 15 years.

KLMUC has always stood for providing industry-relevant graduates, and that mission will continue in its current transformative phase. Current and prospective students can look forward to a new Academic team focused on improving the overall quality in delivery and content, better facilities with continuous upgrades and increased effort to improve employability under our G.E.R.A.K initiatives. With the support of Ekuiti Nasional Berhad, the foundation is now being laid in KLMUC’s 15th Anniversary to prepare it for a more successful next 15 years. We look forward to helping you achieve your dreams, fulfilling the hopes of a new generation and providing opportunities.
