The Institute of Professional Development, Open University Malaysia (IPD-OUM) was officially founded in November 2000 as a centre of excellence within the Open University Malaysia. IPD sees itself as the leading life-long learning programmes provider for the working adults in the region.
IPD-OUM maintains on-going liaison with the public universities, research institutions, training providers and industry experts to ensure that the programmes offered are competitive and relevant to the rapid changes of human capital development.
Its approach to organisational development and capacity building has always been to emphasise human resource development. We see that this can be attained through the principles of andragogy, action learning and individualised attention.
