Singapore Management University president Lily Kong has announced a new initiative to ensure that all its students head abroad at least once during the course of their undergraduate studies.
She announced that SMU students can look forward to more global exposure opportunities with the set-up of Global Centres around the world, starting with cities like Bangkok and Manila.
She said the centres will be SMU’s “footprint in these cities”, helping to coordinate the university’s activities such as student internships.
The overseas centres will also be the base for SMU to offer executive education programmes to corporate companies in the region.
SMU will be launching City Dialogues to engage the broader community in discourse on topics such as reducing inequality and remaking the economy.
