dc.description.abstractGlobalisation has impacted Singapore’s open economy and trade more fervently than many other nations. While traditional literature has captured how the Singaporean labour force views globalisation and its impact, few empirical studies have been conducted to investigate how Singapore’s undergraduate population view globalisation. A study was thus done in Singapore to examine these views by measuring their attitudes against various proxies of globalisation. Preliminary findings suggest that undergraduates in Singapore express high interest in foreign affairs but display ambivalence towards overseas philanthropic activities. Furthermore, they display considerable levels of ethnocentrism on most sociocultural elements, with a correspondingly lower level of consumer ethnocentrism. For both gender and year of study, the study finds no clear associations with the measured dependent variables. Prior intercultural experience seems to have a significant bearing on lowering levels of ethnocentrism among undergraduates. The findings and policy implications are discussed.en_US
