INTI supports initiatives in promoting employability and creating job opportunities for deserving students. A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed with one of Malaysia’s top business process services provider, Teledirect Telecommerce Sdn. Bhd. (Teledirect), where scholarships worth RM10,000 per student were provided to 10 final year international students from INTI.
Industry projects play a crucial part in allowing students to utilize their skills and knowledge from lessons taught within the modules, optimizing design-thinking skills (a methodology to solve complex problems and find desirable solutions) in providing solutions for issues faced in the actual industries. INTI has collaborated with over 450 top-tiered employers across a host of industries such as Microsoft, General Electric, Oracle, Mercedes-Benz and many more to ensure industry relevant competencies.
Boot Camps & Workshops
Supplementary boot camps and workshop sessions were organized at INTI to boost students’ potential in optimizing their skills sets and expose them to the actual industries through collaborations with top-tier companies, resulting in challenge-driven events such as Google Ignite, Microsoft Boot Camp, Hyatt Regency Kinabalu’s Hospitality Boot Camp and more.

Hospitality and tourism students from INTI receive opportunities to build on their technical expertise, through INTI’s MoU with Hilton Malaysia. The MOU includes the provision of five-star workshops to hospitality students, empowering them with the standards and quality expected by the globally renowned brand. INTI also promotes Faculty Industry Attachment programmes where lecturers are seconded to top industry partners for several months, journeying through an experience to adapt into a company and its operations. This programme was held with IKEA Damansara, and many more.
