- More Information
Founded in 1956, the Management Development Institute of Singapore (MDIS) is Singapore’s oldest not-for-profit professional institute for lifelong learning. MDIS has two main subsidiaries: Management Development Institute of Singapore Pte Ltd to oversee its Singapore academic operations, and MDIS International Pte Ltd to further its globalisation strategy.
MDIS offers well-accredited courses in Business and Management, Engineering, Fashion Design, Health and Life Sciences, Information Technology, Mass Communications, Psychology and Travel, Tourism and Hospitality Management. These programmes are offered in collaboration with renowned universities in France, the United Kingdom and the United States of America.
The institute set up the MDIS Education Trust Fund in 1999 to support deserving students who have financial difficulties in pursuing their education in Singapore. To date, MDIS has awarded more than some 7,000 scholarships and bursaries totalling more than S$5 million. The institute also upholds the spirit of giving by actively reaching out to help the young, elderly and disabled, supporting various charities, and providing community assistance.
MDIS’ corporate training arm, the Management Development and Consultancy was set up in 1995 to cater to the training needs of the workforce. In 2014, MDIS acquired the Service Quality Centre to diversify its offerings in training solutions and secure the institute’s position as a premium provider of training solutions in the region.
Apart from the main Singapore campus, MDIS has three international campuses – Tashkent, Uzbekistan; Johor, Malaysia; and Chennai, India, set up in 2008, 2013 and 2015 respectively.
