Chief Executive

Anis Laila Yap Abdullah

Prior to being appointed as Chief Executive for INTI International College Kuala Lumpur in December 2017, Anis was no stranger to INTI and the higher education industry, having served in several roles since 1999. This includes Assistant Vice President for Products and Partnership Management for INTI Education Group, Dean of INTI’s Centre of Art & Design (ICAD), Head of School of Design at KBU International College, Petaling Jaya, and a lecturer in polytechnic schools located in Johor and Selangor.

Anis has been instrumental to the growth of the institution throughout her tenure with INTI since 2011, with her biggest contribution including the transition from PJ College of Art and Design (PJCAD) to INTI’s Centre of Art and Design (ICAD). During this transition, she played a pivotal role in the establishment of ICAD’s internationally recognised programmes and the facilitation of INTI’s partnership with Sheffield Hallam University, UK, to offer affordable global degrees for aspiring young designers.

During her time as AVP for Products and Partnership Management, Anis paved the way for INTI’s partnership with the IBM Innovation Centre of Education, leading to the inclusion of digital industry-based modules to become part of INTI’s computing and business programmes.

Leading INTI’s city campus in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, Anis continues to grow INTI through her active involvement in academic and non-academic operations, the management of INTI’s internationally diverse student and staff bodies, curriculum reviews, and the introduction of new industry collaborations with Direct English, SAS and the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT), UK, for certifications and short courses for working professionals.

Building on her extensive expertise in Art and Design programmes, Anis also currently helms the role as chairperson for INTI’s Community of Practice for Art and Design programmes.
