iCOOP College, Malaysia

The Maktab Koperasi Malaysia (MKM) was registered on June 6, 2013. It aims to set up a college named iCOOP College under the jurisdiction of the government to begin the move towards UKoM (University of Cooperative Malaysia) and to produce qualified human capital especially in the field of cooperatives.

iCOOP College Malaysia started its operation as a higher education institution since July 2015. It is the first college in Malaysia to offer cooperative courses. The establishment of the course has changed the landscape of the local education field which later became an inspiration for the establishment of cooperative universities in Malaysia. iCOOP College offers education-related services and shares expertise to the public in order to empower the local cooperative education sector to be more systematic. However, iCOOP College operations had to be temporary suspended early of year 2023 to make way for the establishment of the Malaysian Cooperative Entrepreneurship University / Universiti Keusahawanan Koperasi Malaysia (UKKM). However, iCOOP College has resumed its operations early of 2024 when IREAM Edu Sdn Bhd (IREAM Education Group Malaysia) have been officially appointed by Institut Koperasi Malaysia (IKMa) which is also an agency under the Ministry of Entrepreneur and Cooperatives Development Malaysia (KUSKOP) to take over the operation and administrative management of iCOOP College Malaysia.

In line with the transformation of Malaysian government TVET education plan, IREAM Edu Sdn Bhd (IREAM Education Group Malaysia) plan to transform iCOOP College to become the only cooperative TVET higher educational institution in Malaysia to produce highly TVET educated future cooperative members as well as Malaysian. Providing a wide range of employment opportunities in the cooperative technical sector, to produce qualified and competent human capital, especially in the field of TVET technology, scientific, digital transformation and publishing results are commercialized in line with efforts to improve the quality of knowledge-based services. The strategy is to create successful future cooperative members with innovative entrepreneurial ideas.
