Our Journey

2006 – 2019

With SMRT being a Public Listed Corporation, the company expanded into the Education sector. Our initial foray was in the area of English Language Training (ELT). Subsequently, we ventured out into Tertiary Education.


In 2020, as part of a corporate exercise, our subsidiary and public listed company Minda Global Berhad acquired SMR HR Group Sdn Bhd, from SMRT Holdings Berhad. This was to consolidate all learning businesses within Minda Global which runs two universities, three colleges, an International School, and an English Language Centre. Minda Global Berhad remains a premier educational player in Malaysia. SMRT Holdings Berhad continued to focus mainly on the technology space. While SMR HR Group has worked around the world, our focus largely remains Asian, specifically Malaysia – South East Asia (ASEAN) and the Gulf Cooperation Countries (GCC) in the Middle East. And, we remain truly a human resources development company with an intense passion for learning and people development.
