Keppel College

Keppel CollegeThe Keppel College serves as a central platform to Educate, Empower and Energise, offering leadership and people development programmes for Keppelites group-wide.

Initiatives driven by the College include the Global General Management Programme (GGMP) for Keppelites across the Group. This programme seeks to hone the business acumen, as well as strategic thinking and management skills of our employees.

We also continue to run the Project Management Programme (PMP) targeted at our young project managers, superintendents and engineers. The PMP introduces the best practices and principles of negotiations, drafting and handling commercial contracts and claims management, among others.

Jointly designed with the Nanyang Business School and the National University of Singapore respectively, our GGMP and PMP courses have been fine-tuned over time to better suit job requirements and employee profiles.
