Singapore Management University - Lee Kong Chian School of Business
Since it was incorporated on 12 January 2000, Singapore Management University (SMU) has established undergraduate and postgraduate programmes that aim to produce leaders and creative entrepreneurs capable of excelling in a rapidly changing and dynamic world. Set up as Singapore's first publicly-funded autonomous university offering a style of education modelled after The Wharton School, SMU occupies a state-of-the-art city campus located in the heart of Singapore's civic, cultural and business districts.
To deliver a world-class curriculum, SMU has some 300 faculty who are selectively recruited from around the world to advance knowledge in teaching and research. They form an experienced and committed pool of talent who reinforce SMU's unique pedagogy of seminar-style teaching in small class sizes, creative thinking and dynamic exchange of ideas between faculty and students. In addition to recruiting some of the best academics in their fields, SMU also calls upon successful leaders in business and their professions for their specific expertise to combine academic vigour with hands-on business savvy.
Today, the Lee Kong Chian School of Business is a dynamic Asian business school with over a hundred full-time faculty and more than two thousand five hundred students. The school offers undergraduate, master's (including MBA and EMBA) and doctoral programmes and is affiliated with a number of active research centres such as the Institute of Service Excellence and the Centre for Marketing Excellence.
