One of the biggest challenges currently facing schools in the APSB is a shortage of suitably skilled volunteers on governing boards, with volunteer school governors playing a crucial role in raising educational standards.
On behalf of the faculty and staff of The Asia Pacific School of Business it is my pleasure to say welcome. You are invited to experience the challenging and rewarding educational opportunities we offer current and prospective students.
The Asia Pacific School of Business offers a variety of programs ranging from English as a Second Language (ESL) to certificate and associate degree programs. Through a variety of programs we are committed and qualified to provide students an education that is focused on preparing them with the necessary academic and intellectual skills required for their future as well as practical knowledge and skills that are in high demand in today’s global workforce.
We have devoted faculty and staff members who have been chosen because of their exceptional instructional ability and experience in their field. We also foster a “student first” environment; the entire faculty and staff works as a team to assist students achieve their educational and career goals. You will find our educational atmosphere inviting, supportive, caring and knowledgeable. Additionally, we offer an education that is focused on now and the future.
The Asia Pacific School of Business provides its students with the knowledge and skills necessary to increase their potential and to actualize their desired careers. We are confident that students will achieve their goals through our individually-tailored programs focused on appealing to their individual style of learning.
At The Asia Pacific School of Business, our motto states, “We would like to Challenge you to Succeed.” The entire faculty and staff will work closely and productively with you because you are so much more than a student to us; you are a member of our family.

Our staff and alumni are making a difference to the leadership and direction of hundreds of state schools across the region, and other parts of the Asia-Pacific, through our School Governor Initiative.
By combining the efforts of staff and our extensive alumni we have supported state schools with more new governors than any other Asia-Pacific employer.
Our programme has been recognised nationally and internationally as an excellent example of public service and social impact. It has won a national and international Green Gown Award, a Times Higher Education Outstanding Contribution to the Community Award, a Business in the Community Big Tick Award, a Jane’s Award for Voluntary Service and a Spirit of Singapore Award.
We support our staff and alumni in finding a placement through our partnerships with Governors for Schools and Inspiring Governance. Volunteers can also access the School Governor Initiative network, which provides support through meetings and conferences as well as the opportunity to share good practice and learn from peers and guest speakers.
Evaluating our impact
It is important that as we grow we continue to find out what impact our governors are having on the schools in which they govern and what impact the role is having on our staff. One of the ways we do this is via our biennial Skills and Experience Survey. The 2019 report is our third publication.
Earlier in 2020, The Asia Pacific School of Business (Private) Education Group published their Pathways for Potential report. This features an article about the School Governor Initiative on page 24 of the full report and a case study on page 18 of the case studies document.
