Bhd., a joint venture between Raffles Education Corporation Limited and Education@Iskandar Sdn Bhd (EISB), a member of the Iskandar Investment Group. Raffles University is an Asian-based Malaysian university that prides itself as a practice-oriented university with intensive curricula and practical hands-on experiences that prepares students for their future careers. The University was formally approved by Malaysia’s Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) on 31st October 2011.
