Singapore Management University

Singapore Management University (SMU) is created to be a premier university internationally recognised for research and education centred on management, social science and computing.


School of Information Systems

The SMU School of Information Systems (SIS) was created within this context to be similarly recognised internationally for its innovative research and education focused on Information Systems Technology, Information Systems Management, as well as problems and issues at the intersection of IS related technology and management.

SIS is distinct from the other five schools at SMU in that we are the only academic unit within the university classified as under Singapore’s Science & Technology cluster of academic units as defined by the Ministry of Education. SIS is eligible for Singapore government funding schemes targeted for Science & Technology based university programmes and research institutes.

We possess deep technology-based research and creation capability in strategically selected areas of information technology, systems and applications. We also actively investigate a range of issues related to the managerial and business impacts of IT within firms, across collaboration networks and value chains, as well as across markets and industries.
