Message from the Dean

NBS Dean Prof Christina Soh

In this fast-evolving business environment, we need leaders who are able think strategically, adapt to change, and deliver impact.

At Nanyang Business School (NBS), developing leaders for today and tomorrow is at the heart of who we are and what we do. We embrace the connection between business, technological innovation, and entrepreneurship while maintaining a strong focus on sustainability. This is evident in our inter-disciplinary and industry-relevant education and research.

Our faculty, known for excellence in both teaching and research, are among the most highly regarded in the world. Their global perspectives and Asian insights are instrumental in preparing students to lead successful businesses in Asia and beyond.

Both our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes allow students to customise their learning journey, and gain real-world experiences through industry collaborations and internships. In addition to a strong emphasis on leadership development, our curriculum gives students a broad perspective on issues facing business, society, and the environment. In fact, we are well-recognised by organisations that employ our students for their progressive outlook, sense of purpose, and cultural intelligence. We also offer a wide range of continuing education programmes for middle and senior level professionals to stay relevant in the workforce and sharpen their leadership skills.

In recognition of the quality of our programmes, NBS is accredited by the European Quality Improvement System (EQUIS) and the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) – the world’s most widely recognised quality assurance standards for accounting and business education.

Many of our alumni, both in the public and private sectors, are making a strong impact on business and society. We are immensely proud of them. They form part of our growing alumni network of 56,000 that continue to engage with us on their own professional development. We provide career guidance, courses for continuous learning, and a platform for networking for our alumni, while they pay it forward through mentorships, and by creating career and business opportunities for our students.

We are privileged to have strategic partnerships with both industry and government. These collaborations greatly enhance our students’ employability in the highly competitive business world, and we will continue to pursue them.

With decades of experience and our forward-looking approach, we are well-placed to empower the next generation of business leaders to innovate for the future, lead with impact, and transform with cultural dexterity.

We warmly welcome you to join the NBS community.
