Last week, Edge Hill Business School was pleased to welcome Mr Jayaram Menon the Academic Director from FY Institute of Technology, Singapore along with a colleague of his, Mr Cao Lenan. Our partner representatives were here for discussions about current programmes and to meet some of the key people within Edge Hill University. They also took the opportunity to meet with our new student arrivals from Singapore and one of our Singaporean Masters graduates during their stay.
One of the highlights of the visit was a meeting and discussion with the Vice Chancellor of Edge Hill University Dr John Cater during which gifts were exchanged.
Edge Hill University has worked with FY Institute of Technology, Singapore since 2008. We have two franchise programmes running at the institute, BSc in Business and Management and BSC in Engineering Management and we are currently validating further programmes. As well as the programmes that are jointly run with Edge Hill University, the institute also run programmes of their own in English Language, Logistics and Information Technology. FY Institute of Technology, Singapore, is well situated, being located in the heart of Singapore’s financial district.
Since 2008 we have had in the region of 100 students graduate from Business and Management and Engineering Management at FY Institute of Technology, Singapore. Some of the full-time students have moved into employment, others have gone on to further study. A number of the part-time students have managed to gain advancement within their jobs as a result of the programme.
We welcomed our first Singapore graduate onto an Edge Hill University Master’s programme last year and this year we welcome four more graduates onto our Master’s programmes.
