DESCRIPTION
 

Nanyang Technological University (NTU) was established in 1981 and has almost 30,000 students. It was recently ranked among the top 50 universities in the world. Nanyang is located approximately 15 miles from the city center of Singapore. The Nanyang exchange was arranged through a special agreement with the Department of Accountancy at the University of Illinois, and is the only program where accountancy students can have accountancy courses transfer. The NTU accounting courses use International Financial Reporting Standards as opposed to the U.S. Business students from other majors cannot take accountancy courses at Nanyang.

Singapore is an island nation with 5 million people located between Malaysia and Indonesia. It has a tropical rainforest climate. Singapore is a very interesting place to study business and has an abundance of multinational firms. It is the 4th leading financial center in the world and has the 4th highest GDP.

Accountancy students who attend Nanyang, will be able to transfer their accountancy classes to UIUC. Other business majors will not be able to take accountancy courses at Nanyang.

Paid internships are available, but not guaranteed, for students who would like to remain in Singapore for the summer. The internships generally last for 3 months.
