NBS Equal Opportunity Fund – Enabling Success
Overseas exchange and internship programmes have a significant impact on the personal and career development of students. These experiences help to boost self-confidence, build independence, and develop soﬅ skills in students such as adaptability and cultural intelligence, which help increase their employability.
An integral part of the NBS journey, overseas exchange and internship programmes oﬀer our students real-world exposure to a wide array of industries and give them the edge to succeed in the new globalised economy.
However, one in five students is unable to take advantage of this life-changing opportunity.
The new NBS Equal Opportunity Fund will now give students from underprivileged backgrounds a valuable platform for overseas opportunities. Launched on 24 April 2019, this initiative from the NBS Alumni Advisory Board was made possible by NBS alumni Mr Danny Yong, CIO & Founding Partner, Dymon Asia Capital, Ms Carolyn Choo, Managing Director, Worldwide Hotels Pte Ltd and Mr Henry Tan, Group CEO & Chief Innovation Officer, Nexia TS.
