Press Releases

Singapore, 23 January 2017 – Singapore’s oldest not-for-profit professional institute for lifelong learning, the Management Development Institute of Singapore (MDIS) has been ranked 15th position by the Webometrics ranking of World Universities, making it one of the top private education institutions in Singapore.

Introduced in 2004, the Webometrics ranking is an initiative by the Cybermetrics Lab, a research group belonging to the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cientificas (CSIC), the largest public research body in Spain. The Webometrics ranking system is featured on the website of the Committee for Private Education (CPE) as an example of Global Ranking systems available to students deciding between educational institutions for their Higher Education. This ranking is updated biannually in January and July.

In addition to the institute’s main Singapore campus on Stirling Road, MDIS boasts three overseas campuses – Tashkent in Uzbekistan, Johor in Malaysia and Chennai in India. The Tashkent campus is in the process of expanding to accommodate 5,000 students while the institute will also be launching its new campus at EduCity@Iskandar in Johor Bahru, Malaysia in the third quarter of 2017.”

Secretary- General, Dr R Theyvendran says, “We are honoured to be ranked as one of the top private education institutions in Singapore.  Over the past 60 years, MDIS has grown from strength to strength, having more than 13, 000 students currently. Our students have come from over 80 countries and we have even welcomed children of many dignitaries, including late former President of Singapore, Mr Yusof Ishak’s daughter, President of Zimbabwe, Mr Robert Gabriel Mugabe’s daughter and Indonesian President, Mr Jokowidodo’s second son. We will continue to collaborate with renowned universities to offer globally-accredited programmes for our students. We look forward to expanding our campus in Tashkent and opening a brand new campus at EduCity@Iskandar in Malaysia. There are also plans to explore opportunities in Sri Lanka and the Philippines.”
