Established in 1985, the University has since produced graduates with transdiciplinary knowledge and skills.
In a relatively short period of time, UBD has advanced and expanded both in academics and infrastructure, producing influential leaders, entrepreneurs and professionals.
In 2009, UBD introduced the GenNEXT programme which has a broad-based and transdisciplinary framework, providing students the flexibility to tailor their studies according to their individual learning styles. This includes UBD’s pioneering Discovery Year programme, which currently offers opportunities for its students to learn on a global platform through its partnerships with universities and institutions across six continents.
Our mission is to empower future-ready leaders through innovative education and enterprising research, driven by national aspirations and guided by the values of Malay Islamic Monarchy (MIB).
