Go On An Overseas Study Mission
Learn At Multi-National Organisations
The nature of our global economy makes it important for SMU’s students to have a keen understanding of the world beyond our borders. Our study missions are designed specifically to give you real, current insights into industries related to your field of study, through meetings and visits with companies outside of Singapore.
These missions will bring you on a networking journey to countries such as Argentina, Chile, China, Germany, Qatar, Russia, Spain, UAE, USA and Vietnam. You will get to meet with CEOs, learn about the companies you visit and how they operate, establish valuable new contacts and possibly even secure internships or full-time employment.
Diverse learning opportunities foster belief in the capacity of all students to master rigorous coursework, develop hope in collaboration and cross-cultural teamwork, and lead to the determination, confidence, and critical and creative thinking necessary to face challenges.”
