The Asia Term 2018 kicks off The Asia Term participants for the academic year 2018/2019 have been selected This year, 64 students will come from the University of St.Gallen (HSG) to Singapore and spend from August onwards 4 months as participants of the Asia Term 2018 at the Singapore Management University (SMU). On 30 April 2018, the group met each other for the first time together with the Academic Director of the Asia Term, Prof. Dr. Stefan Morkoetter, and his staff to start preparing for their time in Singapore. After the kick-off session and the first lecture in Business Development in Asia, taught by Prof. Dr. Michael Hilb, the students were joined for an apéro by the Singaporean group of students from SMU who are currently in Switzerland for the Management in Europe programme. The students from SMU and HSG took the chance to share their experiences and secret favourites of their respective hometowns with those going on exchange there. It was a fruitful meeting for both sides!
