Leadership, Management & Organisation

Part of Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, the Leadership, Management, and Organization Division is a community of more than thirty international scholars from fifteen different countries, with PhDs from research-intensive universities on four continents. We work in four major fields viz., culture and cultural intelligence, leadership, human resource management, and communication management.

In what is the world’s first undergraduate programme in human resource (HR) consulting, our students acquire distinctive competencies in HR consulting, including HR research; talent sourcing, acquisition, and assessment; talent motivation, rewards, and performance management; people analytics; employment legislation; and cultural intelligence. 

Our communication management curriculum leverages on the latest technology for online collaborative learning and extensive 360°-style feedback on students’ presentations and writing. 

At the graduate level, our leadership courses deliver strategic leadership insights, linking the design of talent management system, executive coaching, and communication strategies to the achievement of the strategic visions of organisations.
