At Singapore Management University (SMU), as a globally-recognised premier university in Asia with an extensive partner network, we have continuously grown our suite of postgraduate programmes designed to develop a new generation of leaders for the knowledge-based economy. Our postgraduate programmes have seen a growth of 150% in annual enrolment since 2011, from under 400 to 1,000 per year. In the recent Financial Times (FT) Executive MBA Ranking 2016, the Lee Kong Chian School of Business (LKCSB) has been ranked 9th among Asian business schools and 32nd in the world.

Mentored by outstanding faculty and leading industry practitioners, our postgraduate students are rediscovering the joy of learning through SMU's interactive pedagogy; honing their 'hard' critical and analytical skills, 'soft' people and leadership skills. Our emphasis on their 'heart' skills nutures them to be socially responsible leaders.

SMU's postgraduate curricula is designed in consultation with corporate partners including renowned overseas schools; involving current and practical applications with industry-based learning approaches. Unique programmes such as the Master in Wealth Management, and new programmes like the Master in Human Capital Leadership launched in 2016, serve to enhance our offerings; bringing the total number of SMU Master programmes to 20.

Our students enjoy unparalleled networking and career opportunities. From workshops to employer matching, they receive comprehensive guidance on succeeding in their employment opportunities with the support of our dedicated career counsellors.

Studying in Singapore exposes our students to a unique experience as this country is a cultural melting pot where east meets west. SMU's world-class city campus is situated in the heart of Singapore's bustling central business district and the arts and heritage precincts, pulsating with the vibrancy of our diverse and international student body. 

If you are interested in pursuing your postgraduate education further, SMU offers two types of Doctoral Programmes: Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) and Practice Research Doctorate programmes.
