James Cook University, Singapore
James Cook University, Singapore (JCU Singapore) is governed by the Ministry of Education's Private Education Act in Singapore and started its journey in 2003 as a campus of James Cook University, Australia (JCU). JCU Singapore is a full-service campus with permanent faculty, education and research activities, and the same status as JCU’s operations in North Queensland. The campus has a distinct personality that adds value to JCU’s global mission through context-specific expertise and research with a significant impact on Asia.
Over the years, JCU Singapore has received a number of awards, such as the very first Edutrust Star in 2015 and the Singapore Quality Class STAR (SQC STAR) in 2016, both of which recognize quality management and graduate outcomes. In 2017, JCU Singapore became the only PEI in Singapore permitted to use the controlled term “University” as part of the Australia-Singapore Comprehensive Strategic Partnership signed by both nations’ Prime Ministers. As a young university in Singapore, JCU Singapore offers niche programs in Business, Psychology, Information Technology, and Education offering foundation to PhD-level programs.
The JCU Singapore Business School management programs reflect the tropical agenda amidst a highly global, dynamic and uncertain environment. We guide students discover new opportunities and adapt to new directions, changing business models and mindsets by engaging them in multidisciplinary industry-linked projects. The same mission also drives our research agenda toward discoveries that contribute to the communities within the tropics and specifically those regions of South and East Asia. Leveraging our substantive links to international business as well as professional bodies and Advisory Board, the JCU Singapore Business School delivers business-linked learning experiences that contribute to society via our graduates.
