Singapore: Singapore Management University

Singapore is a large modern city with a diverse population of over 5 million inhabitants. You’ll experience a bustling real estate and financial hub, while its proximity to other Southeastern Asian countries lends itself to weekend excursions.

Singapore’s history dates back to the 11th century.  As a port city, Singapore has a history of being conquered.  The Portuguese destroyed the city in the 1600’s, and the British took control in the early 1800’s.  During World War II the island was occupied by the Japanese, then control reverted back to the British, then the Malay, and in 1965, Singapore gained independence. Today, Singapore has a highly developed free market economy and has been applauded for its visionary development

Courses such as accountancy, corporate communication, economics and statistics, finance, operations, organizational behavior and human resources, and strategic management are offered at SMU.
