The Nanyang Fellows MBA is an exclusive full-time programme for senior executives from the public sector who want to gain deep global business knowledge and Asian insights.
The programme was launched in 1998 by Dr Tony Tan, then Deputy Prime Minister of Singapore. Each year, a small and select group of about 25 participants from the public sector across the continents, join the programme for a journey of profound and intense learning.
Residential Programme in the U.S.
The learning begins in Singapore, at the Nanyang Technological University, and continues later on at two universities in the United States: UC Berkeley and The Wharton School of University of Pennsylvania.
Overseas Business Study Mission
A key part of the learning takes place in a foreign country for the overseas Business Study Mission (BSM). The BSM provides the Nanyang Fellows with an opportunity to bridge theory with practice through studying a specific topic or issue and conducting a case study in the selected country.
Business Leadership Seminars
The Nanyang Fellows MBA programme includes a series of Business Leadership Seminars where participants gain privileged insights from the experiences of top Asian and international CEOs and business and government leaders through closed-door dialogues.
Live Consultancy Project (LINC)
As a capstone to the Nanyang Fellows MBA, participants embark on LiNC; a consulting project to apply what they have learnt on a real world business problem. With guidance from experienced professors and applying all they have learned throughout the program, participants would act as consultants or domain experts to address the problems identified in the industry project, cumulating in the delivery of a final report and presentation to the sponsor company. Through such an experiential learning opportunity, participants would be able to reinforce their learning through practical hands-on opportunities.
At the end of the challenging journey, the Nanyang Fellow is rewarded with a firm conceptual foundation and practical knowledge of business models which embrace the best of east and west business practices, sensitive to the cultural diversity of business dealings within a global environment. You will also have established lasting friendships with other bright and dynamic leaders, from both the developed and emerging economies.
