22 January 2016

Singapore is a symbol of modernity, perseverance, and a union of Eastern heritage and today’s innovation. In the midst of this all parliament house of Singapore stands as the pillar on which today’s Singapore was built.

On 22nd of January 2016, the Global Learning Committee of SP Jain School of Global Management arranged a trip to the Singapore Parliament House to familiarize its GMBA and MGB students of the values and principles the place stands for. Our guides for the day were not only knowledgeable of the significance of the place but also enthusiastic in imparting their knowledge. The tour started with a meticulous and thorough security check, an example of Singaporean efficiency and thoroughness. It then led to a short video of Singapore’s political history. It showcased the clear strategy and vision of the father of the nation, the late Mr. Lee Kuan Yew. We had always heard how important Mr. Lee Kuan Yew has been in the growth of Singapore. But we now truly understood the significance of his contribution, during this trip to the parliament house.

A VISIT TO URBAN REDEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY OF SINGAPORE, URA.

11 January 2016

It is certainly a captivating experience to step out of the Singapore campus gate and mount the staircase which is positioned only a stone-throw away. So captivating, that for many of the students it was one of the first things students do, even before unpacking their bags, when they arrived here in Singapore. 

The stairs give access to the canopy walk, which extend to the tree-top nature trail. At some point near the trail you can see the skyscrapers piercing the sky from between the tree canopy. What a juxtaposition! Singapore is a city of skyscrapers yes! But, undoubtedly, one of its most distinguishing features is its success at merging urban density into its clean, green, natural context. This is certainly a marvel of urban planning.
