About University Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR)

Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR) is a private university in Malaysia, established under the UTAR Education Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation officially launched in August 2002.

The establishment was timely with the recognition of the private education industry by the Government of Malaysia as a vital engine in stimulating and sustaining the growth of intellectual capital to meet the complex needs of an increasingly knowledge-based and innovation-driven economy.
