MANCHESTER Business School’s (MBS) Singapore centre announced on Thursday that it has moved to its new premises in the Central Business District to accommodate rising student enrolment.
The new centre was opened by Nigel Banister, Manchester Business School’s Chief Global Officer and Judith Slater, Acting British High Commissioner and Director of Trade and Investment at the British High Commission in Singapore.
Commenting on the opening, Nigel Banister said: “Singapore as a major global business centre is an ideal location for our students to fully immerse themselves in the corporate culture of Southeast Asia, as well as gain exposure to one of the world’s most cosmopolitan and dynamic business environments.”
He added that the investment and expansion in Singapore is further testament to the region’s leading role in the international education market and the growing demand for the school’s MBA programme.
Judith Slater added: “The education links between the UK and Singapore are strong and growing and the opening of this centre is evidence of the healthy state of these links. Our two countries are both international centres for education in our region and beyond and I look forward to seeing UK’s education excellence being recognised further in this region.”
The Singapore centre administers the school’s part-time global MBA programme for mid- to senior-level executives.
It currently serves 400 students from Singapore and the Asia Pacific, and graduates join a Southeast Asia alumni body of more than 3,000 MBS alumni and over 13,000 from the University of Manchester.
The school’s other global centres are in Manchester, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Dubai, São Paulo and Miami.
