EDUCATION & REAL ESTATE
Intaj Khan is best known for building his business empire—the Western Institute of Technology (WIT)—from scratch. “WIT was started in 2007 with about 240 students. Today we have 600 international students from 35 countries; 62 per cent are Indian nationals.”
The businessman has revealed plans to transform Wyndham as he battles to hold his seat in upcoming council elections. “We have so much land here and so much can be done. I envisage the foreshore looking like the Gold Coast or St Kilda as it’s one of Victoria’s biggest hidden treasures.” Over the years, Intaj has moved towards real estate investments around in the West of Melbourne.
Intaj migrated to Australia on a student visa and founded WIT in 2007, cornering the market for VET certificate courses in building and construction. A few years later, he bought Mowbray College for $6.7 million after it collapsed with reported debts of $28 million.
Intaj, who currently lives Truganina with his wife and five children, says, that he has never faced any problems in Australia. “There are Indian immigrant communities in Australia that have settled for 20-30 years without any problems. Australia has a vibrant multicultural society.”
