On 12 April 2023, the University hosted an event at the National Museum of Singapore.

We were delighted to have over 150 of our alumni, students, partners and friends join us for this event titled 'The Future of Work'.

A lively panel discussion focused on ‘The Future of Work’, including the influence of technology on sectors such as banking, law, finance and governance.
