In 1988, Mt. Tetsuo Saito established Saito Academy of Graphic Design. With the intention to teach about the beauty of Japanese language and culture. Instead, with extraordinary entrepreneurial instinct, Mr. Saito put together Malaysia's first Diploma in Graphic Design, effectively making Saito Academy the local pioneers in design education. His vision was two- fold:
1. Educate and nurture young talents in design;
2. identify and unleash their passions.
Over the years, the programmes and methods used have been meticulously and rigorously crafted to enable graduates to produce outstanding work, and award- winning ideas that take their careers to the next level. In 2008, Saito Security Academy was established. And in 2012, Saito Business School began offering classes. Both faculties, including Saito Design School, became part of the newly formed Saito University College. Today, 3 schools are successful entities in their own right, producing over 2,000 graduates.
