Quotes

...NTU President Professor Bertil Andersson said, "Despite being a young university and ramping up on research only about 10 years ago, NTU has made another big leap here, which is consistent with our upward trajectory in other rankings such as the QS and Times Higher Education rankings. This is another clear indication that NTU has made big progress in global research."
Mr Venkatramani Srivathsan, Managing Director, Africa and Middle East, Olam International said: "The establishment of South East Asia’s first Centre for African Studies could not be more prescient given the strengthening ties and expanding business opportunities Singapore-based companies share with African nations. This year marks 25 years in Africa for Olam and the Centre provides a tremendous platform for all involved to share collective experience and learn from each other.”"
