About NBS Equal Opportunity Fund Campaign

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.
