Why Study MBA at Open University Malaysia?

University Profile
In August 1999, the Minister of Education invited Multimedia Technology Enhancement Operations Sdn Bhd (METEOR), a consortium of 11 public universities in the country, to set up an open university.

This led to the establishment of OUM in August 2000 followed by its launch on 26 August 2002 by the then Prime Minister of Malaysia, YAB Dato' Seri Dr Mahathir Mohamad. With the motto "University for All", OUM believes in the democratisation of education, giving everyone a chance at self-actualisation and fulfilling their potential.


The OUM logo is derived from a combination of the letters "O" and "U". These letters have been creatively styled in a round dynamic graphic form to express the concept of globalisation of knowledge through the open and distance learning (ODL) mode. The University's corporate colours of blue and silver portray a modern and progressive institution of higher learning. The slant in the logo illustrates the University's continuous progress as one of the premier ODL universities in the world.
