iACADEMY recently signed a memorandum of understanding with Singapore-based Temasek Polytechnic for cross-institution projects and exchanges of students and faculty.

The collaboration aims to keep students and faculty engaged and updated with the direction of various industries like business, technology, humanities, and design through exchange programs and other opportunities that will elevate learning.

“We are happy and honored to be part of this international cooperation with Temasek Polytechnic in the areas of staff and student exchanges and the sharing of interdisciplinary expertise, knowledge, and project collaborations. We look forward to further exposing our students and faculty to the global aspect of various industries, different cultures and traditions, international best practices, joint research programs, workshops, training programs, and more,” iACADEMY President and CEO Vanessa Tanco said.

Tanco and Temasek Polytechnic Principal and CEO Peter Lam led the ceremonial signing of the MOU last September 9. Also present during the signing were Lim Chong Jin, director of the Temasek’s School of Design and Philippine Ambassador to Singapore Joseph Del Mar Yap.

Lam expressed delight in the new partnership.

“iACADEMY itself is a highly regarded institution with a broad range of disciplines. We look forward to learning from iACADEMY new ways we can collaborate and innovate together with the industry. I encourage everyone to continue this conversation and look for new ways to add value to education as well as strengthen the relationship between the people of the Philippines and Singapore,” Lam said.

The partnership also strengthens the ties between the Philippines and Singapore.

“Your shared goal of education and providing students with the relevant technical knowledge and appropriate skills needed to become productive and effective individuals in the new digital age has led you to this path of cooperation. I wish you all the best and every success in the implementation of your programs under this MOU,” Yap said.
