UNITAR History.

UNITAR is a brain child of Datuk Hassan Harun, who was the former chairman of KUB Berhad, who incorporated the idea of IT-based and e-learning environment and presented to the Prime Minister (Tun Mahathir Mohamad) and the Education Minister (Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak) in 1996. Datuk Hassan also founded Institut Tun Abdul Razak (ITTAR) in 1991 to provide education and courses in diploma, certificate and matriculation programs which remains operating until today.

It began in 1964 when he enrolled for a teaching stint in the Kelantan English School, a private school in Kelantan, for three months. This experience made him dream to someday build and manage a private school. In 1967, Datuk Hassan joined Islah English School, another private school, also in Kelantan. In May 1968, he joined Institut Pendidikan for another two years, but his dream was still not realised.

It was not until the end of 1969 that Datuk Hassan came close to fulfilling his aspirations. With a few friends who had just graduated from university, he set up Maktab Adabi. This marked the beginning of the Adabi Group. Datuk Hassan left Adabi in 1971 to pursue a university education. In 1976, he returned to Adabi with a renewed spirit and vision, and he set about bringing the Adabi Group to new heights of distinction.UNITAR was officially launched in December 1998. It was then bought over by Yayasan Pintar of KUB Berhad on 1st March 2007.
