Visa Opens University Campus in Singapore

Global financial services firm Visa has announced the opening of the first international campus of Visa University at its Asia Pacific headquarters in Singapore.

The purpose-built facility in Singapore features flexible classroom space, breakout rooms for small-group learning and lounge space for informal networking. It also boasts cutting edge video conferencing technology, which extends the reach of Visa University Singapore across the Asia Pacific region, according to a statement sent on Thursday.

Singapore serves as Visa’s Asia Pacific headquarters and hub for its business in the region. The company selected Singapore as the home for its first international campus as its digital focus is well-aligned with Singapore’s modern and forward-thinking business environment.

Second Major Announcement

The selection of Singapore for the Visa University campus is the second major Visa centre announced in the country this year.

In April, Visa announced the launch of the Singapore Innovation Centre, a 7,000 square foot facility in Singapore that has been established as a destination for clients, partners and developers across the region to work alongside Visa experts and jointly create the next generation of commerce applications.
