Dean's Welcome

A very warm welcome to the Lee Kong Chian School of Business at Singapore Management University.  We take pride in our students and our commitment to excellence in teaching and providing a transformative and innovative learning environment.  Underpinning our philosophy are small class room sizes, flexibility in student choice of specialisation, and engaged teaching and learning styles. We expect our students to be future leaders of society and prepare them for these roles with global exposure and community service. Our students are often seen as confident, caring, committed and highly capable. No wonder that LKCSB has one of the best track records for undergraduate employment success in the region.

We offer an expanding suite of post graduate programmes including an MBA, Executive MBA and general and specialist Master’s programmes in a range of subjects. Our programmes are designed for greater specialisation, connectedness with industry and a global experience.  We work with students to secure their career of choice, so they become active and connected alumni.

We invest to nurture an intellectually vibrant research environment. Our 130-strong standing faculty are leaders in research, practice and education – often featuring among the best Asian faculty in a given area.  Whether it is finance, marketing, communications, operations, organisational behaviour, or strategy, our work appears in the top academic or practitioner journals as well as books and policy reports. Our faculty work with industry and government, and bring this exposure back to our classrooms. What we do care about is whether our work has impact.

LKCSB is an entrepreneurial institution! In 15 years, it has grown from scratch to over 4000 students in our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes – our efforts are now being recognised in global rankings for our programmes and for our research. Our founding partnership with the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania has now expanded significantly and added other partners across the world to make studying, working and visiting the School a truly enriching experience.

I invite you to spend some time on our webpages, explore our learning environment and find out more about us.  What makes LKCSB a great place? Its people.
