Syuen E.I. was established sometime 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 was building a hotel, “The Syuen Hotel” in Ipoh. Whilst attempting to source employee for this enterprise, Mr.Yan discovered that personnel trained in this sector were 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 the student, population outgrew the capacity of the premises.
The cater for the increased number of students, a new building was developed in Pekan Razaki. This new building is capable of accommodation approximately 600 students. The person who visited the school to grant accreditation both from the Ministry and the foreign University have opinion that Syuen E.I has some of the best facilities for the conduct of training in Hotel Management in this region.
The beginning of the year 2014, Syuen College has been shifted to Kuala Lumpur. End of the year 2014, the new management start the operating the college at Lot 803-804, Aras 8, Tower one, Faber Tower, Jalan Bahagia, Taman Desa, 58100 Kuala Lumpur.
