Singapore: Japanese electronics giant Sony has launched a corporate university campus in Singapore, the first outside Japan, a media report said on Thursday.

The campus, in the International Business Park in Jurong, will train middle and senior executives for positions in Asia Pacific and emerging markets such as India, China, Vietnam and the Middle East, Straits Times said.

The company will pump about $3.5 million over the next three years in the campus.

Classes will commence in March, with an expected annual enrollment of 70 to 100 international students.
