HERITAGE AND MILESTONES
PSB aims to upgrade the knowledge and skills of Singapore’s workforce
Our beginnings trace back to 1964 in Singapore, when a small Productivity Unit was set up and later became the National Productivity Centre under the purview of the Economic Development Board. Our mission was to upgrade the knowledge and skills of Singapore’s workforce to meet the needs of the growing economy.

Our Global Presence
PSB Academy’s network spans across Asia. In keeping with our philosophy and commitment to inspire all individuals to discover the value of learning, we take pride that our brand of education has presence in these locations and has benefitted our students.
Raffles College (previously known as INTI College Indonesia and Raffles Academy) is the pioneer of internationalized private learning institution in the country. It is also part of The Raffles Christian Group of Schools (RCGS).
Through a range of practical and innovative courses, Raffles College has carved out a reputation as a respected institution that offers international pathway programs and globally recognised professional qualifications since 2001.
Corporate Social Responsibility
Our past tells us that the future belongs to those who make it – driven by a spirit of resilience, hard work and generosity. Across our campuses in Asia, this spirit burns brightly in our students, alumni, colleagues and partners as they strive to do well for themselves and the communities they serve.
This is the spirit of our Future Makers. We strive to be torchbearers for our collective mission to help people to thrive in the Future Economy – through our mission in bringing quality higher education to students around the region, and by providing a direct positive impact to the community, through social work.
We work hard to consistently improve our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) efforts, to become fully aware of the environmental and social impact and harness the potential that our 12,000-strong student and staff community can bring, to become a sustainable force for good to the public.
We serve four key stakeholder groups as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility efforts: Students, Employees & Associates, Community and Environment.
Talk to us if you have an idea about how you can help contribute to the future, or if you’d like to participate in one of our upcoming projects. At The Future Academy, we welcome all Future Makers to put their best foot forward in building a better future for all.
