OUR BUSINESS IS BUSINESS AND OUR FOCUS IS ASIA
Highly regarded for excellence in management practice, Singapore Management University (SMU) is one of Asia’s leading universities. SMU offers an unparalleled wealth of expertise in issues of business and management in Asia, distributed across its six schools (Accountancy, Business, Economics, Information Systems, Law and Social Sciences). The SMU city campus is a modern facility, enabling a technologically integrated learning experience in the heart of the Singapore business district.
Uniquely, SMU represents a fusion of Western and Asian theory and practice, with a strong foundation in our own research of management and business practices in Asia. We pride ourselves on the publication of research papers, our extensive library of teaching case studies and the business relevance of our programmes and courses.
SMU emphasises an interactive and practice-driven approach to teaching, combining small class sizes (that are conducive for dialogues and discussions) with practical experience in which participants apply the knowledge gained. Known as a pioneer for the holistic approach to producing well-rounded, multi-talented programme graduates, SMU also seeks to incorporate leadership and team skills in all programmes.
