College History
 
The Beginning
 
INTI opened its doors as a small private college in 1986, in Bangunan Sim Lim, Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur. The name INTI was chosen to reflect the College’s emphasis on quality in education – which is the hallmark of INTI College. In Sanskrit, INTI translates as “essence”; in Mandarin, it means “to develop the best in a person”; and in Latin it symbolizes “the innermost.” The College motto -‘Quality, the essence of INTI’—thus reflects the ongoing vision of INTI’s leaders and staff members.
 
In the decade that followed, INTI flourished. At its inception, the College enrolled only thirty-seven students, but within eighteen months the student population exceeded 400. Enrolment continued to climb, and in 1989 the College was re-located to Jalan Sungai Besi, Kuala Lumpur.
 
Two years later, with more than 900 full-time students attending INTI, the College established a permanent campus in Subang Jaya namely:INTI College Subang Jaya (ICSJ). In 1991 and 1996 INTI opened branch campuses in Kuching, Sarawak, and Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, respectively.
 
INTI College Malaysia(ICM), the main campus, was established on 82 acres of land in Putra Nilai in 1998. In March 2000, INTI acquired International College Penang which is strategically located in the Bukit Jambul educational township. In 2004, INTI continued to expand with three new associate campuses on board namely Genting INTI International College, Metropolitan College and PJ College of Art & Design. To date, INTI has eight associate campuses in Malaysia.
