EDHEC Risk Institute–Asia awarded maximum registration period in Singapore

The Singapore Council for Private Education (CPE), the country’s regulator for the private education sector, has awarded a six-year registration period to EDHEC Risk Institute—Asia.

Mr Olivier Oger, Dean of EDHEC Business School commented: “In 2010, Singapore’s Economic Development Board invited EDHEC-Risk Institute to join its Global Schoolhouse initiative and contribute to build-up the Singapore Education brand-name in finance. The award of a registration by the CPE for the longest duration provided by its rules demonstrates a high degree of compliance with the quality assurance requirements the regulator has set forth for academic institutions operating in and from Singapore.”

Private education institutions with significant impact on the Singapore Education brand must be registered with the CPE under the Enhanced Registration Framework; to do so, they need to prove that they adhere to precisely defined standards of corporate and academic governance, student protection, and disclosure. The CPE awards registration for a period of 1 year, 4 years or 6 years, depending on the degree of compliance with requirements relating to managers, instructors, courses, academic and examination boards, premises, and advertisements. According to CPE figures, less than three per cent of registered private education institutions had secured a six-year license as of 20 June 2011.

Mr Frédéric Ducoulombier, Director of EDHEC Risk Institute–Asia said: “EDHEC Risk Institute—Asia is a platform for generating and disseminating academic insights into investment management issues of global importance and particular relevance for investors and institutions in Asia. One way we transfer research insights to finance professionals and promote innovation in the industry is through our short courses and degree programmes. Alongside the recent renewal of EDHEC Business School’s accreditations with the three leading international bodies and for the maximum periods provided, this is excellent news to those practitioners from Asia, Australasia, Europe, and North America who participate in the Asian chapter of our PhD in Finance programme in Singapore.”
