Testimonials from Our Alumni

  • My experience at SMU was deeply empowering. SMU taught me how to work things out on my own that led me to become a resourceful and confident person. In my new venture, I'm bringing the same pedagogy and belief to the young preschoolers in my childcare centre.

    Liaw-Tan Xinhui
    Founder and Managing Director, Little Koala Pte. Ltd.
    Bachelor in Business Management
  • I found the multi-disciplinary approach and project-based curriculum at SMU attractive. The small classroom size was also appealing as it ensured that one is less able to hide in shadows and therefore, created a participative environment.

    Bachelor of Science in Economics
  • I chose SMU [because it] was a brand new university (I joined in 2002, two years after it was founded) and the community was small and tight knit. I was also drawn to its curriculum, which was based on Wharton – a combination of broad-based learning with an opportunity to specialise in a specific area.

    Career guidance helped me to better market myself on paper and in person.

  • SMU has prepared me well for running my own company, Oompr! Pte Ltd.

    The SMU pedagogy is one that places heavy emphasis on real-world project works, which helped develop my leadership and management skills.

  • The highlight of my SMU life was my exchange semester in Pusan, Korea, as well as my final semester that was spent with classmates from around the world. Life is a lot more colourful when you embrace opportunities and friendships beyond Singapore’s shores.

  • I think SMU pushes you beyond your boundaries, it stretches your limits, and it teaches you that you can be more than what you think you are.

    It helps you grow as a person, it makes you confident, it also shows you that there is more to life than just studying and just the books.

  • SMU’s curriculum was extremely flexible and it allowed me to explore various subjects. It allowed me to experiment, understand what I liked and then excel in them.

  • SMU fully supports and encourages its students to develop international exposure. My one and a half years spent abroad encapsulate how SMU is about daring to believe and daring to achieve what you want, no matter how intimidating the path may seem at first.

  • SMU is also very active in providing career opportunities for the students.

    The school maintains very good ties with the commercial sector, so I knew I would be in good hands and landed an internship with Allen & Gledhill LLP, which is a market leader in commercial law.

    Tay Yu Xi
    Practice Trainee, Allen & Gledhill LLP
    Double Degree in Law and Business Management
  • I chose SMU’s Social Science programme for its hands-on approach to learning and because it allowed for a lot of interaction with professors.

    There are many opportunities for individualised attention.

    Assistant Director, Ministry of Social and Family Development
