Close Ties To Industry

To ensure that its syllabus is relevant to the demands of today’s challenging business environment, INTI collaborates with an Industry Advisory Board that consists of respected members of the business community.

These leaders of good standing advise and contribute towards the design and development of INTI’s curriculum. This constant feedback ensures that the gap between the needs of the industry and the expectations of graduates are minimised, and helps to create a robust, up-to-date syllabus which is aligned with the needs of today’s businesses, and maximises INTI’s graduate employability numbers.

A key component to these outstanding students outcome is INTI’s hands-on approach to learning that exposes students to actual working conditions in the workforce through internship placements and employer projects with the world’s leading companies.

INTI students have enjoyed internship placements with several multinational organisations around the country, including a 100% acceptance rate at AEON, Infotrek, Workforce.Org, Cyber Village Sdn. Bhd, and other prestigious companies, gaining invaluable experiences even before their graduation.
