Singapore - Kaplan's Asia Pacific Base
Kaplan established its footprint in Singapore, its base for the Asia Pacific region, with the acquisitions of The Financial Training Company (now known as Kaplan Financial) in February 2003 and the Asia Pacific Management Institute (APMI Kaplan) in May 2005 to capitalise on the growing demand for professional and postgraduate education in Asia.
Today, some 13,000 students are enrolled in Kaplan Singapore courses, pursuing both full-time and part-time programs. These courses range from diplomas and degrees to professional Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) qualifications and post-graduate degrees including MBAs, DBAs and PhDs, and are so successful that fifty percent of enrolments are based on word-of-mouth recommendations. Disciplines offered include Business and Management, Engineering, Information Technology, Communications, Education and Social Sciences. Last year, Kaplan Singapore launched new programmes in the emerging fields of Games Technology, Digital Media, Hospitality and Tourism Management, and Psychological Sciences.
Benchmarked against global best practices and standards, Kaplan Singapore works closely with University and training partners to provide a range of high-quality, internationally recognised qualifications with a rigorous set of standard operating procedures to ensure quality service.
Kaplan Singapore, through APMI Kaplan and Kaplan Financial, are recipients of the Singapore Quality Class Award for Private Education Organisations. In addition, APMI Kaplan was one of the first private education institutions to be awarded the ISO 9001 certification and Kaplan Financial has also been recognised as Singapore's first Platinum accredited Approved Learning Partner - Student Tuition in recognition of the quality of tuition provision for ACCA students.
