Our programs emphasise on “hands-on” teaching philosophy, combining with the theoretical aspect through face-to-face classes and blended learning with e-learning platform as well as hand-on practice based on industry application. This unique approach has strengthened the teaching and learning process at UniKL Business School and has been the University forte for the past 15 years with recognition by industry players locally and international level. By pursuing TVET, we envision to be positioned among the top 250 Business School in Asia Pacific in the QS ranking in 5 years’ time.
Our mission is to produce graduates who are professionally competent, global entrepreneurs and well-rounded industry leaders. Our graduates are not only job-ready but also inspired to become aspiring and innovative entrepreneurs. To-date, UniKL Business School has produced 3430 graduates since 2012. Our graduates are highly sought after. More than 59% of our graduates have been employed within 6 months and about 10.25% % has become entrepreneurs.
In line with the University aspiration “We4Asia”, UniKL Business School has put forward its strategic planning that focuses on four strategic domains namely, 1) Academic Excellence, 2) Student Experience & Capacity Building, 3) Industrial Engagement & Partnership, and 4) Employee Relations & Competency Development.
Our programs are specifically designed based on the industry needs. The teaching and learning take place not only through face to face classroom but also through e-learning platform, and business simulation activities.

Currently, we are working with professional bodies such as Islamic Banking and Financial Institute of Malaysia (IBFIM), Chartered Marketing Malaysia (CIM), Malaysia Insurance Institute (MII) and Malaysia Institute of Human Resource Management (MIHRM) to embed the professional certificate in our programs.
