About The University

Universiti Tun Abdul Razak (UNIRAZAK)

Universiti Tun Abdul Razak (UNIRAZAK) was established on 18 December 1997 and is one of the first private universities in Malaysia.

The university is known for its coveted degrees which were jointly-developed in partnership with globally renowned professional bodies. This unique approach enabled its students to obtain dual publications: a degree and accreditation by professional bodies relevant to their chosen fields, be it accounting, management, taxation and Islamic banking and finance.

To date, UNIRAZAK’s program partners include CPA Australia, Chartered Management Institute of United Kingdom (CMI), Malaysian Association of Tax Accountants (MATA), Chartered Tax Institute of Malaysia (CTIM), Islamic Banking and Finance Institute Malaysia (IBFIM), Malaysian Institute of Insurance (MII) and others.

The university’s efforts in exporting its knowledge and expertise in Islamic banking and financial services to emerging markets have gained due recognition. UNIRAZAK was awarded with the ‘Export Outstanding Achievement Award 2015’ by the Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation or MATRADE, an agency under the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI).

Its status as a premier university for education and research was also affirmed with the achievement of four-star rating from the Malaysia Research Assessment (MyRA) for the year 2014 – 2015. The MyRA star ranking assesses the research, development and commercialization (R&D&C) performance of Higher Learning Institutions (HLIs) in Malaysia.

UNIRAZAK reached another milestone by winning the grand prize for Entrepreneurial University Award of the Year (Private University) at the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) Entrepreneurial Awards 2015.

Today, UNIRAZAK is firmly established as ‘Kuala Lumpur’s Premier School of Business, Government & Education’. Through its seven faculties, UNIRAZAK offers academic program ranging from the diploma level to PhD. Nurturing workforce-ready talents, the university prides itself for offering industry-relevant courses that ride on its affiliation with more than 70 higher learning institutions from all over the world.
