Visa 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.
Singapore serves as Visa’s Asia Pacific headquarters and hub for its business in the region, and Visa University 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.
The company expects that the Singapore campus will draw employees who will learn and share their experiences with others, helping identify best practices across the organization. This includes showcasing Singapore’s success in moving toward a cashless society, and allowing employees attending courses to take those cashless experiences and lessons home to their own markets.
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.
One of the driving principles behind Visa University is the need to provide the information and knowledge Visa employees need to deliver the future of electronic payment to Visa customers and cardholders.
The world is experiencing a digital transformation, with new devices and experiences creating a seismic shift in the way people do everything from staying in touch, to how they work, to how they pay. Visa believes investing in its employees’ growth and development essential for the company to maintain its leadership in digital commerce.
