Empowering Leaders of Tomorrow

Management Development Programme @ Nanyang is designed to equip high-potential managers with general management capabilities, leadership skills, and increased self and team awareness, better preparing them for senior leadership positions in their organisations. 

Our intensive nine-day programme comprises three core pillars – Strategy, Business, and People.

  • The Strategy Pillar provides you with critical insights and frameworks to better understand how various internal and external factors, including digital disruption and sustainability, are affecting corporate strategy and planning. You will learn to think more strategically and understand how to develop strategies for disruption and sustainability. You will also have hands-on practice in analysing and interpreting business data for decision-making. 
  • The Business Pillar will equip you with essential management concepts and skills of key business functions such as finance and marketing while providing an overview of how disruptive technologies (such as AI and blockchain) are impacting today's business models. You will learn to interpret key financial statements, assess a company’s financial health gain a better understanding of the business model canvas, and cultivate a strategic marketing and innovative mindset to create value and drive growth.
  • The People Pillar designed to help you develop a higher level of self and team awareness and learn the behaviours of effective team leadership. As you advance in your career, you need to complement your functional skills with the ability to motivate and integrate the efforts of others. You will also need to develop leadership competencies to manage change and inspire team members to support organisational change.

"Thank you to all the professors and highly talented peers! This programme has helped me explore and articulate the strategic and analytical aspects of a project and look at problems from both the operational and strategic perspectives.

The subjects discussed are intense at times but the professors just made it so simple to understand and relevant that I can immediately apply some of the concepts learnt at work."

Pinaki Ray
Vice President, Corporate Risk, Wells Fargo Bank


"The 9-day MDP Programme has provided me a very comprehensive overview of the business and people management skills in the organizational context.

I really enjoyed the course and have certainly benefited greatly not only from the executive tools taught in the class, but also the interaction with fellow executives and multidisciplinary faculty by sharing experience and knowledge."

Dr. Fang Xiaoqin
Senior Manager, Technology Development & Commercialization, Singapore Eye Research Institute


"The MDP has exceeded my expectations and I have truly gained much insight from all the professors who had been most willing to share."

Colin Ong
Deputy Director, Energy Market Authority


"The Management Development Programme has given me another avenue for networking outside my industry and these conversations have given me new perspectives that relate both directly and indirectly to my job. The lectures during the modules are also very practical and I could put the ideas into use almost immediately in my teams and projects (I dropped an email to my team immediately during one of the lectures!).

This 9-day course has greatly exceeded what I thought I would have gained and I would recommend it to anyone leading or is looking to lead a team."
