SINGAPORE – IMD will plant deeper roots in Singapore with the opening of a new IMD Southeast Asia Executive Learning Center. The new Executive Learning Center will include state of the art teaching space, rooms for breakout discussion, dining facilities, a boardroom and IMD's main offices in Southeast Asia.
The IMD Southeast Asia Executive Learning Center will be housed on Beach Road in the new South Beach Tower. Located in the heart of downtown Singapore, the complex has gained notary for its design by Foster and Partners that includes a unique canopy "environment filter." Rabobank, Facebook, Sanofi, Bain & Company and De Lage Landen are just some of the companies who will also be tenants in the building.
"More than providing executive education, in our customized approach and in our high-touch engagement with clients, IMD is becoming a true partner for Asian business," said Margaret Cording, IMD's Regional Director in Southeast Asia and Oceania. "By establishing a Center where discussion and learning can take place, our new facility is one of the ways we are investing in these partnerships."
"I am extremely proud of IMD's growth in Southeast Asia and that now our clients can choose to come to our campus in Lausanne or in Singapore," said IMD President Dominique Turpin. "While IMD will always promise Swiss excellence, with the new IMD Southeast Asia Executive Learning Center, we look to seek deeper bonds and connections to Asian-based business leaders."
IMD runs workshops and other development programs for companies in Singapore and across the entire region.
