About Management Development Institute of Singapore (MDIS)

Management Development Institute of Singapore (MDIS) Description

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 which oversees its Singapore academic operations, and MDIS International Pte Ltd which focuses on MDIS’ globalisation strategy.

MDIS offers internationally-accredited courses in Business and Management, Engineering, Fashion and Design, Health and Nursing, Information Technology, Life Sciences, Languages and Education, Media and Communications, Psychology, Tourism and Hospitality Management, and Safety and Environmental Management. These programmes are offered in collaboration with renowned universities in the United Kingdom and the United States of America.

Continuing with its long-standing tradition of giving back to society, the MDIS Education Trust Fund (inaugurated in 1999) supports deserving students facing financial difficulties in pursuing their education in Singapore. To date, MDIS has awarded more than 8,000 scholarships and bursaries totalling over S$6 million.  The institute also actively supports several charities and provides community assistance, in reaching out to the young, elderly, and disabled.

Equally vested in corporate-level training, 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 – in its endeavour to be a premium provider of training solutions in the region.

Apart from the main Singapore campus, MDIS has international campuses in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, as well as in Johor, Malaysia. MDIS also has representative offices in China, India, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, and Thailand, as well as agents throughout Southeast Asia.

MDIS prides itself on a long-standing history of providing education and training services to the nation. Its S$35 million campus in Stirling Road occupies a three-hectare land boasting well-equipped classrooms, five computer laboratories, four life sciences laboratories, four engineering laboratories and workshops, three fashion studios, a psychology laboratory, a hospitality training centre, a media hub (TV and radio studios), a nursing practicum laboratory, as well as a bakery and culinary studio. The campus also has an amphitheatre to house art performances and other events, as well as fully-equipped sports facilities including a gymnasium and badminton courts.

Vested with a technologically-competent and future-ready ethos, MDIS’ campus is Wi-Fi enabled, powering campus-wide online access. Through the Blackboard Learning System and video streaming technologies, readily accessible learning resources augment student’s learning experiences anytime, anywhere.

To serve students better, MDIS’ presence extends to an additional training centre, MDIS Dhoby Ghaut, at Orchard Road.

Singapore

Singapore is a cosmopolitan society where people live harmoniously and interaction among different races are commonly seen. The pattern of Singapore stems from the inherent cultural diversity of the island. The immigrants of the past have given the place a mixture of Malay, Chinese, Indian, and European influences, all of which have intermingled.

Behind the facade of a modern city, these ethnic races are still evident. The areas for the different races, which were designated to them by Sir Stamford Raffles, still remain although the bulk of Singaporeans do think of themselves as Singaporeans, regardless of race or culture. Each still bears its own unique character.

The old streets of Chinatown can still be seen; the Muslim characteristics are still conspicuous in Arab Street; and Little India along Serangoon Road still has its distinct ambience. Furthermore, there are marks of the British colonial influence in the Neo-Classical buildings all around the city.

Each racial group has its own distinctive religion and there are colorful festivals of special significance all year round. Although the festivals are special to certain races, it is nonetheless enjoyed by all.

In Singapore, food is also readily and widely available. There are lots of cuisines to offer. We have, Chinese, Indian, Malay, Indonesian and Western, Italian, Peranakan, Spanish, French, Thai and even Fusion. It is very common to savour other culture's food and some of the food can be very intriguing. Indian food are relatively spicier, whereas Chinese food is less spicier and the Chinese enjoy seafood. Malay cooking uses coconut milk as their main ingredient, that makes their food very tasty.

You can refer to our Eating in Singapore section for a list of recommended food outlets in Singapore.



Singapore Weather

Like most of Southeast Asia, Singapore is generally hot and humid. It's warm and humid year round, with the temperature almost never dropping below 20°C (68°F), even at night, and usually climbing to 30°C (86°F) during the day. Recent times, it even reached till 35°C. Humidity is high, mounting over a 75% mark.

November and December is the rainy season. June-August is considered to be the best time to visit, but even then it rains often. Don't let the climate stop you from going, however. Most buildings are air-conditioned (to the point that you may want to take a sweater), and pains have been taken to make everything as comfortable as can be, all things considered. When it does rain, it's generally only for a short period.

For those who enjoy the sun and the beach, Singapore is an ideal place for beach lovers, as you get the hot hot sun throughout the year. So when you're in Singapore, just bring along your cooling apparels and hats.
