From The CEO`s Office

Dr. Lok Lay Hong


Malaysian Institute of Art is vital from its role as a pioneer art and design institute to being a renowned, trusted and reliable arts education provider. Since its founding, MIA has continuously championed quality and affordable art, design and music education. We believe that arts education should not be seen as elite or just for a select few.

It is our aim to have as many students as possible to be able to think creatively and have novel ways of addressing issues and nurture problem-solving skills. This is achieved through our holistic education and highly qualified group of educators.

Our track record in producing relevant and capable workforce for the creative industry is proven with the numerous alumni making a name for themselves. We welcome all youths who have interest in art, design or music education as we build pathways for them to realize their creative dream career.

Ms. Ooi Ai Eng


As a pioneer in Art & Design education, MIA is always evolving to be an excellent education centre within the context of an ever-changing education environment, whilst maintaining its relevance to the Art and Design Industries.

With the recent opening of our new City Campus with modern facilities, MIA thrives to create a conducive learning environment to make each student’s college experience as fulfilling as possible.

In collaboration with Birmingham City University, MIA has embarked to offer a UK BA (Hons) Interior Architecture and Design programme locally. This milestone of achievement is to incorporate our intention to provide affordable education and prepare our students to thrive as global players in the design industry.
