The institution is focused on providing excellence in education. MAHSA University was founded by Professor Datuk Dr Hj. Mohamad Haniffa, who is also the MAHSA Pro-Chancellor and Executive Chairman, in 2005 at Pusat Bandar Damansara, Kuala Lumpur.
Beginning as MAHSA College, MAHSA was upgraded to “University College” status in a mere four years and subsequently, achieved “University” status in 2013. This rapid growth and upgrade in status is a standing testimony of the dedication and commitment present within the academic and administrative staff of the University.
