MDIS Heritage


A New Identity is Born - Forging Strong Global Partnerships


In conjunction with the Lancastrian School of Management (LSM), UK, SAMTAS launched the Certificate in Management Studies awarded by both SAMTAS and LSM.

From 1986 to 1989, MDIS collaborated with prestigious universities from UK, USA and Australia to offer certified courses. In line with adult learners’ training needs, business management courses were launched in 1987.

On 8 February 1984, SAMTAS was officially renamed the Management Development Institute of Singapore (MDIS). The new MDIS logo was launched at the inaugural ceremony held in 1985.

In 1989, the MBA and postgraduate Diploma in Management Studies with the University of East London, UK, was launched. For the first time, the British Technician Council (BTEC) gave approval for the Certificate in Management Studies course to be conducted in Asia.
