Alibaba Group’s cloud computing arm Alibaba Cloud inked a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the National University of Singapore (NUS) to collaborate on supporting talent in the industry. This was announced at the Alibaba Cloud Summit-Infinity 2018 conference in Singapore today.
Under the MOU, the firm will offer NUS business analytics students internship opportunities at Alibaba Cloud.

In March, Alibaba Cloud also inked a MOU with Nanyang Technological University, another government university, to launch its first joint research institute outside of China.
