School Overview

In 1997, the Singapore government first proposed the idea of establishing Singapore Management University. The university system refers to the model of American universities and is characterized by autonomy and openness. Since 1999, SMU Business School has collaborated with the Wharton School of Business of the University of Pennsylvania and established a joint research Center.

In 2000, the first campus of SMU was put into operation. The site was once home to Raffles College, founded in 1929, and later the National University of Singapore, and is adjacent to Hwa Chong Institution. In 2001, the school began to improve the building and retain the colonial architectural style. From 2001 to 2004, Professor Ronald Frank served as President of the University and was succeeded by Professor Howard Hunter. The current principal is Arnoud De Meyer, who took office in September 2010.

In 2005, SMU officially moved to its permanent campus in Bras Basah and held its first graduation ceremony. Subsequently, the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences was split into the Faculty of Economics and the Faculty of Social Sciences. In the same year, the Ministry of Education transformed SMU, along with the National University of Singapore and Nanyang Technological University, into an autonomous university.

In April 2011, SMU received accreditation in Business and Accounting from the Association for the Advancement of International Business Schools.

Singapore is an island in the ocean, so it has a tropical Marine climate, but Singapore's geographical location is in the north of the equator, so it has become an equatorial type of tropical rainforest climate. Here, the temperature is very high, the average monthly temperature is between 24 and 27 degrees Celsius, so like sunbathing friends can enjoy a good time here, I believe that the sunshine here will make you feel the warmth from the bottom of your heart. Singapore, which does not have typhoons, has a lot of rainfall, with an annual rainfall of about 2,400 millimeters. Although there is a lot of rain, but it can not change the high temperature in the territory of Singapore is stuffy, the temperature is hot and humid I don't know some friends will not be used to it. But fortunately, the sultry temperature is not like this all day, under normal circumstances, the sultry temperature is in the morning ten to three o 'clock in the afternoon this time period. The morning and evening are pleasantly cool under the breeze of the sea, when you will find that the temperature in Singapore can be so comfortable. At this time, the temperature will be unconsciously reduced to 20 degrees, so friends who do not like stuffy can use this time to play well. Therefore, the beautiful and warm Singapore is the most beautiful paradise for children who like the sun and swim, and for friends who don't like the heat and can't accept the direct exposure of the sun, it will be a great challenge, but because of the early morning and evening, these friends will not suffer.
