Institution Profile

Background of Institution

Erican College

As one of Asia's top academic institutions, Erican College has graduated thousands of highly competitive and desirable graduates with its unique approach to education and professional development. It is founded by Datuk Eric Chong, who is also the President of the Branding Association of Malaysia (BAM), and is a member of the Erican Education Group – an award-winning educational organisation that has made tremendous academic achievements since its founding in 1990, winning accolades such as the Golden Bull Award, the National Mark of Malaysia Brand and several SME Excellence Awards for its outstanding contributions to the field of education.

Today, Erican College offers a comprehensive array of tertiary programmes to meet the demands of the modern competitive business. Its programmes produce graduates who are well-equipped with the necessary skills to make them desirable and essential by the employers of their respective industries.

Academic Strengths

Erican College

All lecturers are selected based upon a set of stringent criteria. Not only must they possess the relevant qualifications, they must also possess in-depth industry experience as well as hands-on exposure to the subject matter they teach.

Additionally, what truly sets Erican College apart is its Success Programme, the first of its kind in Asia. Today's employers are looking for graduates who are not only academically qualified but who also demonstrate strong people skills that enable effective contribution to the growth of the organisation. This pressing demand has led Erican College to pioneer a holistic education concept which has earned the college a solid reputation for developing their students into well-rounded assets who are significantly more sought-after than their peers in today's competitive job market. The Success Programme comprises two key components: The Success Forum and the Success Camp.

The Success Forum is a monthly event conducted by the founder of Erican College himself, Datuk Eric Chong, who is also known to his beloved students as their Success Mentor. It covers hours of invaluable success strategies culled from Datuk Chong's decades of experience as a successful entrepreneur and educationist, and also as the President of the Branding Association of Malaysia.

Students also get to meet prominent names in the country's leading industries, the majority of whom have developed Asia's most well-known companies. These guests are called Success Icons and have included Dato' Liaw Choong Liang, President and CEO of Focus Point; Mr. Dixon Chew, CEO of Pensonic; Datin Winnie Loo, Founder of A Cut Above; Mr. Azran Osman-Rani, CEO of Air Asia X; Dato' Steven Sim, Founder of Secret Recipe; and Dato' Lewre Lew, Founder of Lewre International. In these sessions, students gain a one-two punch of invaluable skills development and priceless insights from the world's most successful professionals.

Students can also look forward to personal development in the form of the four-day Success Camp. The camp is an interactive experience designed to bring out the leader and team player in each student through fun and thought-provoking activities. At the end of the camp, those who show immense potential are awarded with Best Leadership, Most Promising Leaders, and Best Team to encourage them to continue strengthening these positive qualities in themselves.

Programme Outline

Erican College

Erican College offers quality tertiary education across a wide range of fields. Students can choose from a comprehensive selection of diplomas and degrees with majors in Business & Marketing, Accounting & Finance, Graphic Design, Interior Design, Interior Architecture, Information Technology, Culinary Arts, Hotel Management, Human Resource Development, Cognitive Science, Visual Communication, Communication Studies, Cinematography, Video & Film Production, Multimedia Computing, Software Engineering, Tourism Management, and many more. These study programmes are all geared to groom students for top-level positions, ensuring that graduates are well-equipped with the knowledge to turn their passion into a trade.

For quality top-up pathways, Erican College has established partnerships with a number of internationally acclaimed universities including Teesside University, University of Wolverhampton, University of Portsmouth, Middlesex University, London Metropolitan University, Universiti Sarawak Malaysia, and Universitas Widya Gama Mahakam Samarinda. These strategic collaborations facilitate the exchange of cutting-edge knowledge, know-how, and industrial experience.

Academic Facilities & Resources

Erican College's lively city campus is strategically located at the heart of Kuala Lumpur and is barely a 10-minute walk from Malaysia's iconic twin towers. The campus is designed for one and only one purpose: to allow students to learn in an environment that encourages peer-to-peer interactions and fosters productive learning outcomes.

The campus is fully equipped with modern and up-to-date technology and resources, with facilities that include a library, computer lab, broadcasting studio, communication lab, photography lab, multimedia lab, resource centre, language lab, student lounges for local and international students, recreation room, material room, learning centre, tourism mock-up room, and many more.

Student Support Services & Student Development Activities for Graduate Employability

The Erican College experience doesn't stop after the graduation walk. It has worked with local and international employers to secure quality employment opportunities for its students. Datuk Chong's influence and connections as President of the Branding Association of Malaysia also come into play to pave the way to greater opportunities in various industries, with the majority of the Success Icons providing internships and work placements to Erican students.

It is thus that a major percentage of students have already been granted internships at prestigious companies and many have been offered permanent employment even before their graduation.

Outline of Scholarships/Financial Aid

Erican College has been fully committed in contributing to the development of youth from the start, and it is an ongoing achievement that has remained a priority in its work in the education industry. The College awards scholarships to students who are academically excellent or who are in need of financial aid to continue their academic journey. In addition, students can also apply for external forms of financial assistance including PTPTN, study loans and EPF withdrawals.
