KDU College Penang establishes first independent International Quality Assurance Board
In line with KDU College Penang’s continued stand in providing quality education,
the College took it a notch higher through the establishment of a first-of-its-kind International Quality Assurance Board in June 2013.
Being one of the pioneers in private tertiary education as well as a 5-Star MyQuest rated institution by MOHE on the back of a slew of MQA accredited programs, KDU Penang has continuously moved forward as evident by its initiative to appoint an independent International Quality Assurance Board to further evaluate and enhance the quality of its program offerings. The move certainly bears testament to KDU Penang’s seriousness in helping to deliver the next generation’s industry ready graduates.

The Board members shared their various international experiences and
recommendations such as research strategy plans and partnerships, enhancement of student experience and mobility through international student exchanges and support, latest technology in teaching methodology and pedagogy as well as continuous improvements in quality assurance measurements with KDU Penang’s senior management led by Dr. Chong Beng Keok who is the CEO and Principal of KDU Penang.
The two-day meeting was a resounding success with the Board members

We will take the Board’s recommendations seriously in our effort to continuously build and
strengthen the recognition of KDU academic awards in the international community. I would also at the same time like to thank the Board members for their readiness to render their time and services towards this noble initiative.”
