Interview with Mr.Ravi Krishnan – Assistant Vice President, PSB Academy

Mr. Ravi Krishnan - Assistant Vice President

PSB Academy was once a division of Singapore’s National Productivity Board (NPB), and we are known today as “The Future Academy” with an approach to education that focuses on what really matters: performance in the New Economy. In 2019, the Academy was conferred “Best Educational Institute – Singapore” by APAC Insider and earned 2 consecutive SBR National Business Awards in 2017/18 in the Education category for outstanding work in the region. We are an international network of colleges that works with leading universities and quality education partners, to offer our students transnational education opportunities.

There’s never a dull moment with PSB Academy. Through a wide array of student clubs and activities, our students get to gain a depth of experience and a breadth of perspective and they will be groomed to be well-rounded as they progress into the real world.

What are the various academic programs and courses offered at PSB Academy and tell us the unique pedagogy points. Also, how has this benefitted the students studying various courses at your academy?

  • Singapore has traditional eastern cultural values and western high life standards drawing a whole range of advantages of modern education.
  • One of the valuable aspects of studying in Singapore is also that the classes are only conducted in English. The Singaporean system of education features clear differentiation for classes where students may profoundly learn those disciplines, they deem appropriate for future occupation.
  • Singapore is called the gate to the South-East Asia. It is the area of major global trade, education and tourism.
  • The country state has minimum rate of crime. Law compliance is strictly controlled in Singapore and taking this in view, international students feel safe in the country during their study period here.

Some of our more popular courses for Indian students are IT & Computer Science, Cyber Security, and Business Management, Logistics and Supply Chain Management, Engineering
