It was started from the establishment of the Bunda Mulia Information Management and Computer Academy (Indonesian: AMIK Bunda Mulia) by decrees of December 11, 1986 and March 30, 1987. Then, in 1995 by decree of the Directorate General of Higher Education dated October 10, 1995, the AMIK Bunda Mulia transformed into the Indonesian: STMIK Bunda Mulia.

Lodan Kingdom No. 2, North Jakarta, with a land area of 45,000 m2. Compared to the first campus which is located on Jl.
