Study at MDIS - Singapore

The Management Development Institute of Singapore (MDIS), founded in 1956, is Singapore’s oldest not-for-profit professional institute for lifelong learning. In its fifth decade, MDIS has maintained its dedication to professionals through the provision of well-accredited courses, seminars and management services. MDIS provides opportunities for individuals to develop professionally through academic programmes in the areas of Business and Management, Mass Communications, Information Technology, Life Sciences, Psychology, and Travel, Tourism and Hospitality Management offered in collaboration with highly acclaimed universities in Australia, France, the United Kingdom and the United States of America.

The success of MDIS’ graduates is attributed to the institute’s strong commitment to high quality standards of education. MDIS’ exemplary education and business excellence standards were further endorsed in July 2003 when MDIS received the Singapore Quality Class award under a new category created for Private Education Organisations (PEOs). In August 2005, MDIS received the CaseTrust Accreditation for PEOs. In September 2008, MDIS set up its first overseas campus in Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan in Central Asia, to set up an educational centre in Tashkent to offer world-class tertiary education to students from the Central Asia region. MDIS has representative offices in China, India, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Vietnam. It is also represented by agents throughout Asia, Africa and the Middle East.

Graduate Studies at National University Singapore (NUS)

NUS offers three main types of challenging graduate programmes: Doctoral (Ph.D.), Master's (by coursework or by thesis), and the Graduate Diploma.
All Doctoral degree programmes at NUS are primarily research-based. They equip students with the skills required to advance knowledge, and human progress. Doctoral degrees are typically the first choice of students who seek depth of knowledge, enjoy creative problem solving, and who aspire to hold high level positions in their respective fields. To accommodate students with full-time employment, some doctoral programmes allow students to enroll on a part-time basis, with modules conducted in the evenings and, in some instances, on Saturdays.
Master's degree programmes are primarily designed to prepare students for the practice of a profession (typically Master's by coursework) or to master a subject area as a precursor to doctoral training (typically Master's by research).
The Graduate Diploma is offered as a terminal qualification and provides limited professional training in a specific niche. The Graduate Diploma is often favoured by those students who seek additional exposure to an area of interest without wishing to commit themselves long-term to further studies.
Prospective graduate students should think carefully about which type of graduate programme most suits their interests and career aspirations. Increasingly, students pursuing a research-oriented career (whether in industry or academe) and/or wanting to advance quickly in their chosen career, elect to enroll in a Doctoral programme.
