The International Trading Institute@SMU (ITI@SMU) was formed as the result of a collaborative effort between leading industry players in the trading sector, the Singapore Management University (SMU) and International Enterprise (IE) Singapore in 2007. The first trading institute in the world to be set up within a university, ITI@SMU boasts a specialist focus on international trading and is supported by a unique public-private partnership. ITI@SMU is Singapore’s premier industry platform for thought leadership and talent development in the arena of international trading.

ITI@SMU’s key objectives are:

  • To create value for partners by growing a pipeline of talent across the trading value chain.
  • Strengthen Singapore’s position as a trading and maritime hub.
  • Ensure the long-term sustainability of the institute

The strategic development and direction of ITI@SMU are steered by our stakeholders through three sub-committees which draw on the talent, expertise and guidance of senior representatives from key companies operating in the commodities trading value chain, as well as from SMU and IE Singapore.
