2008, GMI expanded and shifted to her new 75-acres campus with advanced training facilities located in Kajang, Selangor. The move to Kajang only drove GMI to be more motivated and persevere to achieve and succeed in mission and vision.

The institute is governed by a Board of Directors composed of 10 representatives from the industry and also the government bodies where the founders are Majlis Amanah Rakyat (MARA) and Malaysian German Chamber of Commerce & Industry (MGCC). GMI’s training philosophy, approach and equipment carry significant German influences and all trainings at the institute uphold the hands-on, practice-based concept by adopting the German dual education system. However, throughout the years, GMI had changed her training approach from the traditional teacher-centered to a student-centered and again transformed from the Problem Based Learning (PBL) to the current Problem-Project-Production Based Learning (Pro3BL) approach.
