GSP COURSES: TWO TRACKS
Asia is a dynamic region that is home to culturally diverse societies at varying stages of transformation. As a cosmopolitan city-state with a thriving entrepreneurship and innovation scene, Singapore offers myriad opportunities for all.
Sustainability is multifaceted and applicable to social and economic domains such as environmental conservation and business practices. As one of the world’s top financial hubs and greenest cities, Singapore is an ideal platform to explore this topic.
