The visit was the result of an agreement signed last year between the MCI and the National University of Singapore, one of the world’s leading universities.

This is considered one of the most innovative study programs and boasts such project partners as Nestlé and Cadbury.
In addition to benefits in academic and personal development, the agreement also enables students to discover the multicultural atmosphere of the “Switzerland of Asia”.
