The Management Development Institute of Singapore (MDIS) is ranked as Singapore’s oldest not-for-profit professional institute for lifelong learning.
In its fifth decade, MDIS has maintained its dedication to professionals through the provision of well-accredited courses, seminars and management services. MDIS provides opportunities for individuals to develop professionally through academic programmes in the areas of Business and Management, Mass Communications, Information Technology, Life Sciences, Psychology, and Travel, Tourism and Hospitality Management offered in collaboration with highly acclaimed universities in Australia, France, the United Kingdom and the United States of America.
The success of MDIS’ graduates is attributed to the institute’s strong commitment to high quality standards of education.

In August 2005, MDIS received the CaseTrust Accreditation for PEOs.
In September 2008, MDIS set up its first overseas campus in Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan in Central Asia, to set up an educational centre in Tashkent to offer world-class tertiary education to students from the Central Asia region.
