Masters and Ph.D. students at the Singapore Management University can now take courses and programmes from a range of disciplines such as law, commerce and technology at SMU’s new College of Graduate Research Studies.
The new college is the university’s eighth school. Education Minister Chan Chun Sing said that the new college represents SMU’s efforts to build up its research capabilities. Apart from its impactful research, the university has also been good at integrating disciplines, Mr Chan also noted.
SMU’s newly created college will collaborate with other schools, including the Yong Pung How School of Law, to launch a new interdisciplinary PhD programme in Law, Commerce and Technology. Students will learn organisational and computational law, preparing them for the technological changes impacting the legal services industry.
