Message From The Vice President

Dear colleagues, friends, partners and supporters,

Warm greetings from the Office of Business Development (OBD) at SMU.  It is the time of the year again for us to reflect and look ahead.

In the first year that OBD was set up (2013), the theme of our work was about ‘First Things First’. In 2014, we were committed to ‘Connecting The Dots’ within, with the various SMU Offices, Schools and Institutes and linking them with the regional and global university partners as well as with government and industry supporters locally and overseas.

I continue to be amazed at how hard the teams in the four offices with direct reporting line to me had to work to ‘run’ with me, and am very encouraged at how other colleagues from other offices (you know who you are) are joining us in our endeavours.
