STUDY ABROAD / INTERNATIONAL EXPERIENCE : Singapore

Jessica Grenat, a graduate management student from Grenoble EM, talks about her experiences at Singapore Management University.

With a thriving environment, Singapore is an amazing experience to live, willing to preserve its traditions in an advanced society! Symbolizing the Asian golden coast by excellence, it is quite Americanized, focusing on shopping, but also impressively developed in terms of growing companies and infrastructures. And, at the same time, Singapore is alive keeping a deep Asian culture celebrating each tradition and religious event in the streets.

Concerning Singapore Management University, the campus is fully equipped in terms of sport infrastructures and sundry student associations. Courses and team works are extremely interesting as Singaporeans are implicated in their studies (Indeed, their outcomes determine their entry-level salaries!) So be prepared to be up to the work!

Be prepared to work!

Singaporeans are food fans, so try all you can with the 24H open food-court system!

                                               
My advice to get the most of Singapore:  1/meet and get local friends 2/ Enjoy Singapore’s unbelievable platform to explore the South East Asian region.

William Penn University Study Abroad: “Some Americans (and other international students) are interested in meeting people from other countries and cultures.
