Singapore, October 12, 2021 — The Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS), WiseNet Asia, and the Chongqing Yubei District People’s Government (YDPG) today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to jointly develop human capital.
The tripartite MOU, signed by SUSS Provost Professor Robbie Goh Boon Hua, WiseNet Asia Founder Mr Wesley Hui, and YDPG’s Vice Director Ms Yang Man, will see SUSS offer graduate programmes such as the Master of Management and Master of IP and Innovation Management to upskill Chongqing’s workforce. WiseNet Asia will work with YDPG and hiring companies to provide internship and employment opportunities for SUSS students in Yubei District, a major tech hub in Chongqing. YDPG will provide relevant resources in support of students’ internship programme lasting between one and six months in duration.
Professor Goh, said: “SUSS is proud to be part of this collaboration, which aims to facilitate increased collaboration in talent development and mobility between China and Singapore. For SUSS, this partnership aligns with our intention to provide students with meaningful overseas experiences to complement their academic learning. We hope to produce global-ready graduates who understand the world and its emerging issues better.”
Mr Hui, said: “China is leading the world in its economic recovery since the pandemic hit last year. Post recovery, China companies have been operating with unprecedented efficiency through accelerated technology and leading-edge systems. Yubei District, being the leading tech hub that has over 700 companies and potential employers, is the right place for students to be, where they will be exposed to some of the world’s leading technology and working standards.”
