S’pore students set for workforce & world: global quiz host

SINGAPORE: Singapore students have a hunger for knowledge and are ready to face the workforce and the world, observed a key partner of the Tata Crucible Campus Quiz.

Mr Giri Balasubramaniam, more popularly known as "Pickbrain", is the host of the global business quiz.

He said the world looks up to Singapore in many ways, and one of them is quality education.

The Tata Crucible Campus Quiz has been held in India, Singapore and the UK.

The defending team from Singapore Management University (SMU) won the challenge in Singapore this year.

This is SMU’s fourth win, and its third consecutive one since it was held in Singapore five years ago.

The team from the National University of Singapore took second place, and the Nanyang Technological University took third spot.

The quiz tests students’ knowledge on business—related topics as well as their lateral—thinking abilities.

The SMU team is set to represent Singapore in April next year at the International Finals in India.

The quiz covers a wide range of subjects from the world of business and economy, including business houses, personalities, brands, and markets.

Organiser Tata group aims to encourage lateral association, speed of thought and out—of—the—box thinking, among youth.

Tata group is made up of more than 100 firms in various sectors, and has operations in over 80 countries globally.
