Our Mission Statement
We were pleased to have all 9 batches of SMU Emerging Markets gathered back in SMU on 23rd December! Besides meeting the newly minted batch of Analysts, it was an enriching opportunity for SEM members to connect over professional and personal experiences.
SMU Emerging Markets proudly hosted our 3rd Emerging Markets Forum and we explored what it means for a company to do business in Southeast Asia's emerging economies - the prospects, challenges, and rewards - as well as the regional capital raising landscape and up-and-coming industries.
SMU Emerging Markets has recruited our 9th Batch of Analysts! As we continue to be SMU’s premier market research club, we had focused on strengthening the new batch of Analysts with the necessary research and analytical skills to gain insights into a plethora of industries in emerging regions, and identify macro trends emerging economies – from a political, economic and business perspective.
