Global Research and Academic Collaboration Partners:

Auckland Institute of Studies, Auckland, New Zealand:

Established in 1990, Auckland Institute of Studies (AIS) is one of New Zealand’s largest private degree-granting institutions approved by New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) & enjoys Cat 1 Rank.

AIS provides wide range of NZQA-approved qualifications, including certificate, diploma, undergraduate degree, graduate diploma, and postgraduate diploma and degree programmes for domestic and international students. AIS offers a variety of courses in business, tourism management, hospitality management, information technology and business administration. Their fast-growing MBA programme is one of the largest in New Zealand, and Their English Language Centre offers qualifications in EFL, EAP, IELTS Preparation and Business English. It’s one of the most Eminent Contributor in the Field of Management and Accounting Research in New Zealand and has got many accolades in past from CPA, and Chartered Accounting Institutes of Australia.

IIMS SOB, in the year 2011 made a novel and unique advancement through an international venture with Auckland Institute of Studies (AIS), Auckland, New Zealand, for conducting overseas MBA and Students Exchange Program, and undergraduate program through cross credit pathway. The program is mainly designed to cater to the ever-growing demand of overseas education amongst the talented Indian students. It aims at reducing the cost of quality education substantially while at the same time ensuring smooth transition to overseas campus under the institute’s arrangements.


Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) is the Largest public university based out Shah Alam, Malaysia, thatwas Established in 1956 as RIDA (Rural & Industrial Development Authority) Training Centre.

The university comprises one main campus and 34 state campuses. With 18000+ academic and non-academic staffs. UiTM offers over 500 programmes ranging from Foundation to Postgraduate & Doctoral level. It is home to some 180000+ National and international students, in full-time and part-time modes.

In 1967, the college was upgraded to Institute Teknologi MARA. Its establishment came as a response to a need in Malaysia for trained professionals, especially among bumiputras. This shortage was identified through a manpower survey conducted by the government in 1965 collaboration with the United Nations.

Acknowledging the fact that education holds the key to positive social engineering processes, ITM has made education easily accessible primarily to the bumiputras of Malays and indigenous bumiputras of the Malay peninsula (such as Jakun, Senoi), and those from the East Malaysia (such as the Kadazan-Dusun, Melanau, and Dayak).

It mainly catered to semi-professional courses predominantly in the science and technology in fields such as engineering, applied sciences and architecture, building and planning. However, realising the importance of other complementary nation-building fields, it has also included a repertoire of other salient ‘management and humanities-based’ fields such as business studies, hotel and catering management, mass communications, public administration, law, secretarial science, as well as art and design.

By 1973, branch campuses had been set up in Perlis, Sabah and Sarawak. The development of ITM was in three stages. The first phase (1967-1976) came with the declaration of the institute as an autonomous body with its own 300-acre campus in Shah Alam, and was placed under the Ministry of Rural Development. The second phase (1976–1996) saw ITM rapidly harnessing its potential as an institution of higher learning. It led to the passing of the ITM Act of 1976 that placed the institute directly under the Ministry of Education.

The third phase (1996–1999) came about as a result of an amendment to the ITM Act 1976 which granted the institution all the powers of a university and on par with all the universities in the country, despite retaining its name.

Among the significant change was a creation of board of directors and Senate. Many principal officers of ITM were re-designated such as the Branch Director was renamed Rector, the Head of Campus became the Provost, while Principal and Senior Lecturers were re-designated as professors and Malay Associate Professors, respectively; each School was re-designated as a Faculty; ITM was given the power to confer degrees up to Doctor of Philosophy level; ITM was given the unique power to establish courses and campuses abroad with permission from the Minister of Education; the Institute was conferred additional powers to enable it to conduct business, invest in shares, set up companies and engage in commercial research; disciplinary powers over staff were transferred from the Minister to the board of directors; to improve staff accountability, the Institute was bestowed the power to impose a surcharge; and the procedural rights of students in disciplinary proceedings were strengthened.

In August 1999, the Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad announced the change in name of ITM to Universiti Teknologi MARA, UiTM.With such acknowledgement from the government, a major restructuring exercise was carried out to consolidate the University’s resources for optimum productivity.

The Universiti Teknologi MARA Act 173 was drafted in conjunction with the establishment of UiTM. It is deemed essential as the Act provides guidelines for maintenance and smooth administration as well as other pertaining matters. The Act also serves as an acknowledgement of the institution’s transition from an institute to a university, and the authority bestowed upon it to function like any other university. This includes the offering of courses of studies and the conferment of degrees at all levels with all Other Partnering Institutes Globally.

In the Year, 2016, IIMS joined hands with UNIVERSITI TEKNOLOGI MARA, MALAYSIA (UiTM), which is the Largest Public University in Malaysia for Research, Academic Collaboration, Faculty Exchange, Global Socio-Economic Projects && MPhil & PhD Programs for Executives across Education and Academic Sectors and for Economic & Micro Management Research in different areas.

About IIMS’ Research Work and Publications

Developmental State and Millennium Development Goals

Prior to the 2016 Sustainable Development Goals, the United Nations (UN) had eight “global goals” set out to all 191 UN member states at that time, and at least 22 international organizations. Seven out of the eight United National Millennium Development Goals are social goals. The attainment of such goals would require a substantial proportion of public sector expenditure. Without a robust rate of economic growth, whatever is achieved cannot be sustainable. Developmental State and Millennium Development Goals argues that this is the main reason why some of the largest developing countries fell short in achieving the goals.
