NUS is Asia's Number One

Shaw Foundation Alumni House
I was delighted to learn that the National University of Singapore (NUS) has risen in the latest global university rankings and is now Asia's #1 university.

It is a credit to the strategy put in place by the current and former Vice Chancellor and their respective teams.  The investment in top quality professorial staff and research has sure paid dividends; it's really about academic rigour and gravitas.  Having the support and expectations of government is also a prime motivation and reason for the rise in recent years.

NUS's elevation augers well for Singapore's future as its educated population are its greatest asset.

Well done NUS and I retain fond memories of my friends and former colleagues at NUS's Alumni office. (pictured above).
