Empowering the youth of the world through education has always been the purpose of Taylor's Education Group (TEG), the largest private education group in Malaysia. With an unsurpassed track record and strong lineage, TEG has earned the reputation as the leading private education provider in the country, offering a full spectrum of services - from the No 1 private school to one of the top private universities.

A progressive and modern university, Taylor's University has become Malaysia's premier education institution and a cultivating ground for leaders in the global community. Its strength lies in academic excellence and high standards. Its track record in producing highly employable graduates is a result of world-class teaching and learning pedagogies, which are benchmarked against world standards and strong industry linkages for curriculum development.

"The key is the quality that we provide to students, which in turn reflects on the graduates we produce," says Taylor's University vice-chancellor and president Dr Hassan Said. "Nearly 80 per cent of our graduates gain employment within six months. Our alumni are leaders in their respective fields around the globe."

Taylor's attracts students from mid-range to upper-income families. It has received numerous recognitions from the government, industry and consumers, further strengthening its position as a university of choice.

The university is intensifying its high-impact research and development and international outlook in terms of student mobility and transnational education. It boasts a rich cultural diversity with students from more than 80 countries and a highly talented academic staff from around the world. Its strategies include promoting transformational teaching and learning in line with the advancement of technology.

"We're on the lookout for opportunities outside Malaysia, particularly in Southeast Asia and China, albeit ensuring that we uphold the heritage of quality and excellence that has made Taylor's a renowned educational institution," Said says. "We'll continue our momentum in developing top-notch talents primed to be leaders in the global workforce."
