Bina Nusantara University originally evolved from a computer training institute, Modern Computer Course, which was founded on 21 October 1974.[2] Along with the development, the Modern Computer Course later developed into Computer Engineering Academy (ATK) on July 1, 1981. The academy offers informatics and informatics management education. Three years later on 13 July 1984 ATK achieved registered status and the name changed to AMIK Jakarta. On July 1, 1985, AMIK opened a course in accounting computerization. AMIK began to use the name Bina Nusantara on 21 September 1985.

AMIK was awarded the best computer academy award from the Ministry of Education and Culture on March 17, 1986. AMIK Bina Nusantara then formed STMIK (College of Informatics and Computer Management) Bina Nusantara on July 1, 1986. The institute then offered undergraduate study programs (S1) in informatics management and informatics engineering.
