Methodist Pilley Institute (MPI) was established in 1991 to serve the local community with its mission to produce ethical and socially responsible citizens and leaders by providing quality, wholesome and affordable education. Over the years the institute has grown from its humble beginnings to become a trusted institution of higher education in the areas of accounting, taxation, finance, business management, computing, early childhood education, social work and English.
Today MPI is branded especially for its accounting programmes, not only in Sibu but throughout Sarawak.

• ACCA (registered tuition provider since 2005)
We have 14 full-time dedicated and experienced lecturers in accounting department, they come from different backgrounds, with many of whom have solid corporate experience that helps students to recognize the actual challenges they may face, and they are able to give real-life examples which will benefit students in their examinations. Not only that, the lecturers are there to build connection between corporate and students when it comes to internship or placements.
In 2010, ACCA has awarded the Gold Approved Learning Partner status to MPI, this means MPI has met ACCA’s widely recognised and highly regarded global best practice benchmarks. MPI is also the only CBE centre in Sibu since 2006. CBE is computer based examination which was developed by ACCA as part of its overall e-business strategy, providing learning and assessment online and continuing to offer student access, opportunity and flexibility through the ACCA brand.
For 29 years we have nurtured many outstanding students who have excelled in both of their studies and professional career. Among our brilliant alumni is, Mr Dominic Hu Khie Yeen, who completed his CAT and ACCA qualifications, and also a B.Sc. (Hons) Applied Accounting from Oxford Brookes University (UK), all in just 3 ½ years at MPI. For many years Dominic worked in various sectors including multinational corporation and listed companies in Malaysia with the qualifications earned at MPI under his belt before he decided to come back to MPI to serve as a lecturer. In year 2017, he obtained his M.Sc. in Professional Accountancy from University of London and he’s now our accounting degree programme leader who is pursuing PhD qualification. With the solid education foundation built over the years in MPI and ACCA, he has begun to publish academic research paper in peer reviewed international research journal recently.
The establishment of MPI is to remember Mr and Mrs John Pilley who had, between 1949 and 1960, worked selflessly to provide good and affordable education to the poor and needy children in Sarawak. Our institute, named after their name, now continues the mission of the Pilleys by ensuring that youth of diverse racial, religious, and socio-economic backgrounds are adequately prepared for the challenging job market through our accredited and recognised programmes.
