This diverse portfolio is a source of financial stability and also presents various opportunities for the university to leverage on.  Nilai is jointly owned by Nlai Resources Group Sdn Bhd and FELDA Global Ventures. 

There are currently five faculties – Business, Science and Technology, Hospitality and Tourism, Engineering, and Humanities and Social Sciences. There is also a Centre for Foundation Studies. These faculties along with the Centre for Foundation Studies offer 44 pre-university, diploma, degree and post-graduate programmes.

Nilai's motto is ‘Enrichment for Life’. This means that Nilai administrators are committed towards producing well-rounded graduates who are academically proficient and socially-confident. 

The ‘Total Student Experience’ is another concept which the administrators are keen to adhere to. This is where a student’s varsity experience is not confined to the classroom and the final examination marks but includes opportunities to attend workshops and seminars and also extra-curricular opportunities. By providing the Total Student Experience, it is believed that Nilai students will have a memorable varsity experience which will help mould them into dynamic young adults.  

Nilai  administrators firmly believe that all students should be given the opportunity to fulfil their potential through higher education.  To this end, a number of scholarships are available, rewarding both academic high achievers as well as those with exemplary extra-curricular résumé (e.g. state or national athletes).  There are also financial aid schemes designed to lessen the burden of lower income households.
