About Us

Background of Newton College

The College was established in mid-1993. It was initiated by Tan Sri Shariff Ahmad, a former Minister of Education and Mr. Yan Kock Yuen an entrepreneur.

During the period, Mr. Yan the Owner of the Syuen group of companies built a hotel, “The Syuen Hotel” in Ipoh. Whilst attempting to source employee for this enterprise, Mr.Yan discovered that personnel training in this sector is not easily available. Demand was far greater than supply and staff turnover in the industry was far above the national average.

This prompted the founder to start a Hotel & Catering Management School. A building was developed on a piece of land located in Gopeng Road and structured specially for training in discipline of Hotel and Catering Management. The school began operations in 1993 but soon as the population outgrew the capacity of the premises to cater for the increased number of students, a new building was developed in Pekan Razaki. This new building is capable to accommodate approximately 600 students. The person who visited the school to grant accreditation both from the Ministry and the foreign University have opinion that the college has some of the best facilities for the conduct of training in Hotel Management in this region.

The beginning of the year 2014, the college has been shifted to Kuala Lumpur. End of the year 2014, the new management started to operate the college at Lot 803-804, Aras 8, Tower one, Faber Tower, Jalan Bahagia, Taman Desa, 58100 Kuala Lumpur.

In 2019, the college has been rebrand as Newton College and the facilities has been improved. It creates conducive environment for the students and its employees.
