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!
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.

n25: “One year ago, I was given the opportunity to intern in Singapore and coming here was the best decision I’ve ever made. Sure it has all the standard factors that make urban living attractive – good restaurants, smart people from all over the world – but I want to outline a list of what makes Singapore stand out from the competition.”
Squeezing Creativity: “After spending few culturally enliven days in Kuala Lumpur, my sister tag me along for a swift visit in Singapore. The plan was to see the dazzling Marina Bay Sands, shop at her much frenzied H&M store and tread into the magical nooks of Universal Studios thereafter. Agreed.”
William Penn University Study Abroad: “Some Americans (and other international students) are interested in meeting people from other countries and cultures. Others tend to focus mostly on sports and their pre-established friend circles rather than welcoming in a new person. It takes time to make new friends – so don’t feel discourage.”
Higher Education Management: “Be happy whenever you can manage it. Enjoy yourself. It´s lighter than you think.
Operaviva: “The way this city developed in these last five years is though monstrous and I am not talking about its size or population, both of which are impressive, of course.”
