When Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University decided to establish a presence in Asia, Singapore was a logical choice. With close American ties and a pro-education environment, Singapore was an attractive location for our first campus in Asia. Singapore is home to a diverse community of hard-working talented individuals which is exactly what the university needs maintain its commitment to education excellence. Administrative Offices support the University's mission by providing comprehensive services to the University's stakeholders and to the wider community.
