The Dual LLM in Commercial Law (Singapore and London) programme aims to provide students with a unique opportunity to study commercial law in two major commercial hubs, Singapore and London. The programme is designed to give you a broad overview of Asian commercial law in Singapore followed by the opportunity to build on this knowledge by going into more depth in London, through more specialised taught modules as well as a dissertation.

This is a highly intensive 15-month degree programme where you will gain insight into the legal underpinnings of commerce in the East and West. On successful completion you will be awarded a Dual LLM in Commercial Law (Singapore and London) from Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) in the UK and Singapore Management University (SMU) in Singapore.

This programme:
- Provides an expert and in-depth understanding of the workings of commercial law and the application of the law to everyday practice. You will also gain the ability to assess critically and comment upon the current state of the law from an international and transnational perspective and conduct advanced research in this area of law.
- Has a major focus on international and comparative issues, and on the importance of legal principles, rules and laws underlying business and commercial relationships. You will be equipped with a thorough understanding of key aspects of commercial law from multiple perspectives.
- Will allow you to develop an in-depth understanding of different regions' approaches to resolving commercial problems.
- This is a fully integrated programme where you will stay connected to both universities throughout the whole 15 month programme. You will be given thorough inductions at each of the two stages of the programme in both universities. Lecturers from both universities will be available to you, whether you are in Singapore or in London.
- The programme features extracurricular activities including, networking, careers and social events.

Why study LLM in Commercial Law at QMUL and SMU?

LLM degrees from QMUL and SMU have the potential to open up global career opportunities for high-calibre students. That's because both institutions are among the world's most respected universities and the programme is tailored to meet the needs of employers.

This 15-month Master of Law programme offers a greater variety and breadth of experience than a standard one year programme.

You will gain an expert understanding of different international regions' approaches to resolving commercial problems, and the ways in which these respective solutions achieve (or fail to achieve) their ends.

Why this course?

Strathclyde Business School has been delivering the Strathclyde MBA on an executive (part-time) basis via our international centres since 1988, with Singapore being one or our inaugural MBA centres.

A pioneering and experienced MBA provider, we update and review our MBA to reflect the current business environment. Strathclyde’s MBA is strategy-focused and blends theoretical and practical business learning. Our MBA is flexible, and responsive to the needs of working individuals. Our wide choice of electives can help you personalise the programme to suit your business interests. These elective classes can be studied in Oman, as well as in Glasgow or at our other international centres, to give you an international learning and networking experience.

The MBA project gives you an opportunity to examine in depth a managerial, organisational or environmental issue of your choice over an extended period of time. Our Executive MBA allows you to study whilst continuing with your career and allows you to implement your learning into work.

See the website https://www.strath.ac.uk/courses/postgraduatetaught/mba-singapore/

What is the programme format?

The programme is designed for busy executives who need to combine their commitments with the demands of MBA studies. The flexibility of the part-time approach enables most participants to graduate within two years. However, study may be spread over a longer period if necessary, to a maximum of six years.

Typically, your MBA studies will be made up of:
- monthly intensive seminars delivered by Strathclyde academics at our centre in Singapore
- regular tutorials with our locally based counsellors
- off-campus learning and support facilitated by our virtual learning environment

You’ll work in an international environment alongside like-minded classmates and be part of our long established network of students and alumni from our international postgraduate centres.

A highlight of the Strathclyde calendar is the annual MBA Summer School which takes place in Glasgow, over May and June. The summer school is open to all study routes of the MBA who have reached the elective stage of the programme. It's a great way to accelerate your studies, and network with a large group of international colleagues.

There are two intakes per year for the Strathclyde MBA in Singapore in October and April.

Accreditation

Strathclyde Business School is triple accredited by the three international accreditation bodies – AMBA, EQUIS and AACSB. To gain accreditation by one of these bodies is an achievement in itself. To gain accreditation by all three bodies is a truly outstanding accomplishment and one of which we're proud.

Entry requirements

Our selection process is designed to identify talented professionals from a wide range of academic, business and cultural backgrounds.

While there are formal requirements for entry listed below, we take into consideration:
- your potential
- your interpersonal and team working qualities
- the range and nature of your managerial experience

In order to assess these skills we ask you to complete a number of essays outlining your experience and aspirations alongside references supporting your work experience and academic record.

We may ask you to undertake a formal interview to discuss your achievements and aspirations. We also encourage you to visit the school or centre you’re applying to and to ask as many questions as you need.

Qualifications & experience

For entry to the MBA programme you must:
- hold a degree from a UK university, or equivalent academic qualification from a comparable non-UK institution. If you studied for your undergraduate degree at a non-UK institution we will need a copy of your degree transcript. Professional qualifications will also be considered.
- be at least 24 years of age.
- have a minimum of three years' full-time postgraduate experience where the management of people and resources has played a significant role.

Entry at Diploma level may be offered to applicants who do not hold sufficient recognised degree level qualifications, but who do:
- hold non-degree/professional qualifications plus at least five years' varied management experience.
- have no formal qualifications but extensive and varied management experience (10 or more years).
- are exceptional candidates over the age of 24 with a minimum of two years' managerial experience. This is available only to candidates applying to routes other than full-time.

Admissions testing

Although the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) is not a standard requirement of our admissions process, strong verbal reasoning and numerical abilities are critical for the MBA and we may ask you to undertake such a test.

Competence in English

The MBA programme is highly interactive and requires a high level of competence in English speaking, writing, reading and understanding. A minimum score of 6.5 in IELTS is required if your first language is not English. We may consider applicants who fall slightly below these standards if they're willing to undertake pre-sessional study.

Learning & teaching

Learning methods include:
- face-to-face teaching by Strathclyde University staff
- regular local counselling support
- home/private study with specially prepared core learning materials
- assignments and examinations set, marked or validated by Strathclyde University staff

Careers

We recognise that career development is one of the main reasons why people invest in an MBA. The MBA job market offers plenty of global opportunity but can be complex and challenging.

That's why we offer a dedicated careers service for MBA students. This consists of career planning and skills development as well as unlimited access to personal advice and coaching. Our careers service is delivered in-house and by a team of top consultants.

We work with you to complement your proactive job search efforts. We help you use your own particular career background and strengths to help with your next career move too.

You’ll gain the understanding and tools to develop your personal, strategic career plan, as well as the self-marketing and communication skills to make effective applications and impress at interview.

You’ll have the knowledge of the global job market and a range of contacts to make it work for you.

The Business School has been delivering business education in Singapore since 1994, when its MBA programme was originally launched. The MSc International Business further extends these activities in Singapore and is delivered in conjunction with our partners, the Singapore Institute of Management (SIM).

We use fundamentally the same syllabus as taught on the International Business MSc programme in the UK and the same team of Business School academic staff travels to Singapore in order to deliver all of the modules.

For graduates wishing to develop a career in international business, a wide range of opportunities exists. The programme draws on the talents of internationally respected scholars and highly respected teachers whose expertise covers globalisation, the international aspects of strategic management, accounting and finance, corporate governance, e-commerce, global talent management, marketing, organisation of multinational corporations, operations and procurement and cross cultural communication.

Business today is global and no company can be confident of surviving unless it appreciates this fact and understands its implications.

Multinational corporations are very short of managers from countries other than their domestic base, who have the understanding to operate comfortably in different countries.

Small and medium-sized firms with strong niche positions are also increasingly looking for talented and well-trained staff to help them undertake international expansion. In major emerging economies such as Brazil, China and India, successful domestic firms are poised to become multinational through expanding overseas. They too welcome graduates with the appropriate knowledge about doing business internationally.

The MSc International Business has been accredited by the Association of MBAs (AMBA). The accreditation, aimed at Pre-Experience Masters in General Management (PEMM), takes into account criteria such as the breadth of the syllabus, the quality of teaching staff, careers support available and the inclusion of a research dissertation. This accreditation aims to safeguard standards of excellence and ensure clarity about the purpose of various general management qualifications in an increasing market.

Global Innovation Design (GID) is a joint Master's programme between the Royal College of Art and Imperial College London. It is a unique, transnational Master’s design initiative that brings together three major centres of design, culture, enterprise and industry. Read more

Global Innovation Design (GID) is a joint Master's programme between the Royal College of Art and Imperial College London. It is a unique, transnational Master’s design initiative that brings together three major centres of design, culture, enterprise and industry: Europe, North America and Asia. 

GID is a multidisciplinary, multicultural and multinational design programme awarding both an MA from the Royal College of Art and an MSc from Imperial College London to graduates. GID offers an engaging global curriculum and provides powerful cultural experiences crafted to nurture innovators and designers who are prepared to take on the changing needs of enterprise in the twenty-first century. 

GID international partners include Pratt Institute (New York), Keio University (Tokyo), Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) and Tsinghua University (Beijing). Each of these distinctive institutions brings unique expertise and complementary approaches to design, engineering, business and cultural sensitivity, within the context of internationally oriented design innovation. 

The GID vision is to foster a transformative postgraduate experience that is unparalleled in the world, one that cultivates internationally oriented innovation and design leaders who can tackle complex problems and deliver positive social, environmental, economic and cultural change.

The GID ethos is to cultivate activated people, designers and leaders who are capable of making change in the world. Designers on the Global Innovation Design Master's programme will be expected to generate creative directions that other designers and innovators will follow.

The programme is full time and runs over a period of two calendar years. GID Master's candidates on the joint RCA/Imperial College programme begin their course in London for two terms developing their visions and a body of work which will be thematically and regionally developed throughout the next year and a half.

They have the opportunity to study on the New York/Tokyo route or the Beijing/Singapore route during their first and second years. They then return to London for the final two terms of their graduation year. Graduates from the programme are expected to be central to innovation leadership in the twenty-first century. 

Philosophically, GID challenges designers to ask who they are and what is most important to them; as authors of material culture they are asked what kind of world do they wish to create, and what contributions will they make. Global Innovation Designers create transformational culture. At the centre of the programme is the knowledge that transformational culture is engendered by objects and experiences that are the embodiment of the robustly beautiful and the exquisitely functional combined.

The GID Master's programme offers:

  • a double Master's: MA Royal College of Art and MSc Imperial College London – students are fully enrolled at both institutions
  • programme includes study at world renowned institutions: route one, Keio University in Tokyo and the Pratt Institute in New York, and route 2, Tsinghua University in Beijing and Nanyang Technical University in Singapore
  • the first two terms of the first year are in London, where designers participate in the GID London Core
  • a diverse and international mix of students
  • teaching staff who are highly experienced practitioners and work professionally in their field
  • potential enterprise and commercialisation support through the InnovationRCA incubator
  • leadership skills for design-related enterprises operating in international environments
  • high-level graduate destinations: RCA and Imperial alumni work in international corporations, global consultancies as well as new self-started commercial enterprises

London – Tokyo – New York

Study on the Tokyo/New York route route gives access to Keio University, well known for physical computing and social design interventions, as well as Pratt Institute, renowned for a tradition of excellence in industrial design. 

London – Beijing – Singapore

Study on the Beijing/Singapore route gives access to Tsinghua University, China's number one institution with world class design labs and studios, as well as Nanyang Technical University's School of Art, Design, and Media whose cutting edge programmes in new media and cultural and social design innovation situate it as a leader in emerging Asian and Global design.

At Tsinghua University, London-based students will benefit from studying at the top University in China, gaining first-hand experience of the culture of China and designing with both new and traditional materials in the context of emerging Asian design.

At Nanyang Technical University, London-based students will be exposed to a rich and varied Pan-Asian community. NTU offers world-class communication and video production instruction with cultural understanding at the core. NTU is expert in the practice of “value transmigration”, how to translate a culturally specific artefact into a viable product-service-system in a new cultural context.

Another unique feature is the Leadership Development Programme (LDP) which includes a programme-long schedule of group coaching, 360-degree assessments and team activities, designed to develop a leadership style that is authentic to you, thus accelerating your career progress even further.

THE GEMBA ADVANTAGE:
HIGHLY RANKED & GLOBALLY RECOGNISED
Financial Times (2016) ranked the INSEAD GEMBA as highest single-school Programme while the Tsinghua - INSEAD EMBA (TIEMBA) is ranked in 2nd place.

A UNIQUE FOCUS ON LEADERSHIP
Our Leadership Development Programme runs throughout the programme, evolving along with your own leadership skills.

LEARNING THROUGH DIVERSITY
Unlike other schools, INSEAD doesn’t have a dominant national culture. This enables us to turn diversity into a powerful learning tool.

GLOBAL, INTENSE & EFFICIENT
With only 51 to 60 days needed away from work over a period of 14 to 17 months, depending on your choice of starting campus, the GEMBA is one of the most efficient routes to a top business degree.

OUR GEMBA COMMUNITY:
FACULTY
Several of our faculty were practitioners and entrepreneurs before becoming professors. Many work as consultants and are board members for leading companies. And they all influence business practice through teaching, research, publication and media appearances. Whether your base campus is in Europe, the Middle East or Asia, you can be assured that your faculty will come from the same select group.

PARTICIPANTS
INSEAD brings together people, cultures and ideas from around the world to change lives and transform organisations. Although the GEMBA is a modular programme, each class fuses rapidly into a tight-knit group because of the intensity of the experience, the shared learning and, particularly, the Leadership Development Programme.

This international pathway for the EdD programme is taught through a combination of intensive week-long courses in London and by distance learning.

The programme is designed for an international body of practitioners in education, health and related fields who would like to extend their professional expertise and training and develop skills in research, evaluation and reflection on practice. It offers exciting opportunities for a cross-cultural and global examination of professionalism in education.

The programme is as rigorous as traditional PhD studies and will enable you to focus on research that relates to your own professional practice.

Programme of study and assessment
The programme consists of:
• three assessed taught courses, Foundations of Professionalism and Methods of Enquiry 1 and 2; each is examined by a 5,000-word assignment
• an institution-focused study (IFS) leading to a report of about 20,000 words, providing evidence of how the study has supported
your professional development and extended your understanding of your professional role
• a research-based thesis of approximately 45,000 words, which must make a distinct contribution to the knowledge of the field of study and afford evidence of originality and a capacity for autonomous research.

Your assignments, report and thesis should include an international, intercultural or comparative dimension. There is also an oral examination, which will test both your thesis and your conceptual understanding of the integration of all the elements of
the programme.

You will be attached to an academic department from the start of the programme. You will receive support and guidance from your supervisor in this department, whom you will meet once a term on your visit to London, and who will be in regular email contact with you when you are in your own country. The responsibility for your IFS and thesis may later transfer to a
different supervisor, depending on your particular research interests.

Length of programme and teaching and study arrangements
The programme is designed to be completed in four years of part-time study; the maximum period of registration is seven years. The entry date is October each year. It is taught through a combination of intensive one-week blocks in London with face-to-face tutorial support, and by email and online support when you are in your own country. We build in opportunities for you to keep in close touch with your fellow students.

Residential programme of events
During each of your one-week visits to London, you will take part in a programme that may include:
• sessions on academic writing
• training in qualitative and quantitative research methods
• sessions on using the library and online library resources for research
• research workshops
• opportunities to socialise with other IOE students and to take part in Doctoral School conferences.

While you are preparing for your IFS, you will receive support through a specialist course in international education.

Dual EdD award in partnership with the National Institute of Education (NIE) Singapore
The international EdD degree programme can also form part of a dual award offered by the IOE in partnership with the National Institute of Education, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NIE). Students applying for the dual award programme must meet the entry requirements and be accepted by both institutions. If you are accepted you will undertake the taught components and the IFS report through one of the partner institutions and then transfer to the other institution to complete your thesis. Dual award students will have full access to the facilities and resources of each institution and, on successful completion of all the requirements of the dual EdD, will be eligible for the award of a Doctor in Education degree from both partner institutions.
