Recognition by Professional Bodies

As KDU is committed to satisfying total requirements of our customers through quality training and education services, it ensures that its qualifications and assessments are accredited, relevant and recognised. Government bodies, the industry, university partners and global professional bodies have long recognised the quality of KDU's programmes. Accreditation is a required procedure that KDU conforms to standards set by institutions, one of which is the Malaysian Qualifications Agency, which ensures that programmes meet or exceed the quality standards.
