Welcome to our Future Academy
Here’s a glimpse into our Future Academy as we continue to groom graduates for our smarter future
“Future Academy” is a reflection of PSB Academy’s mission to groom and equip millennials and working adults for the future economy. As we break new ground into a 100,000+ square foot campus at the heart of the city, we invite aspiring students to join us in our next phase of transformation as a leading education institution for higher learning in Singapore and beyond.
This expansion will offer ‘first-of-its-kind’ experiences for our students. The future of learning needs to blend technology, hands-on experimentation and quality academia. In our Future Academy, higher education will be experienced like an adventure that will inspire students to make connections, collaborate and co-create.
The first phase of construction of the new grounds will be completed soon. On 3 October, 2016, we will welcome our first batch of students from our post-graduate programmes into the new campus. Our schools of Business and Communication, as well as English and Education, will move in after the second phase of construction is completed. We are expecting to complete this expansion by May 2017.
Students from the following programmes will be amongst the first to experience our Marina Square campus:
• University of Newcastle, Australia – Master of Business Administration
• University of Wollongong, Australia – Master of Business Administration
• Edinburgh-Napier University – Master of Science Business Management (Entrepreneurship)
• Edinburgh-Napier University – Master of Science Business Management (Human Resource Management)
• Edinburgh-Napier University – Master of Science International Business Management
• University of Nottingham – Master of Business Administration in Finance
• University of Nottingham – Master of Business Administration
• University of Hull – Executive Master of Business Administration

Our new campus at the heart of Singapore's city centre will occupy a space of more than 100,000 square feet across 2 floors. Designed to be an oasis of learning, the centrally-located campus draws much inspiration from Singapore’s identity as an innovation hub and a garden city, by offering a blend of advanced learning technology, immersed in a refreshingly green environment with natural plants and lighting conditions.
Designs around our new facilities are centred on the theme of making “learning an adventure”, one that would encourage discovery, curiosity and exploration as part of their education journey at PSB Academy. These are expressed through design features inspired by natural landscapes from across the world, reminiscent of trekking trails, cliff faces and caverns, albeit in a city campus.
Much of the new campus environment is also built for simple and intuitive use, with barrier-free concepts aimed at making the new facilities accessible to our diverse and cosmopolitan student community.
Commuters can now enjoy with a direct route to school from City Hall and Promenade MRT, the latter of which is only a 5-minute, completely sheltered walk in air-conditioned comfort.
Wheel-chair friendly features have been built into classrooms, lecture theatres and auditoriums.
For added convenience to school services, there will also be e-payment and ticketing systems—a first for the school—that will help students make appointments with academic staff or student services.
In a bid to make learning online and offline a contemporary, seamless experience, the school will also be launching Moodle across all its classrooms: an integrated system that automatically syncs video recording of lessons and lectures with the school’s scheduling systems which can be downloaded.
For better collaborative learning, there will be acoustically-treated MBA rooms that will not require microphones for voice amplification and auditoriums that can seat more than 300 people.
Students can enjoy new spaces like a glass-housed radio and television studio for course-related work or entertainment for student-led events.
More breakout areas, including a student hub and town hall, will provide students ample spaces for discussions in-between classes, or for self-study.
Dynamic lighting that automatically adjusts to suit the time of day, plus natural greenery around the facilities, will simulate an outdoor campus experience indoors.
