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 so they are better prepared for senior leadership positions in their organisations. The intensive nine-day programme comprises three core pillars – Strategy, Business and People.

  • The Strategy Pillar provide executives with tools and frameworks to better understand key dynamics affecting organisational performance and help them think more strategically to formulate and execute better strategies. Participants will also be encouraged to view their role in the context of corporate strategy and growth goals, so that they can better align their own daily priorities with the strategic goals and mission of the organisation.

  • The Business Pillar will equip executives with essential management skills and concepts of key business functions, while providing an overview of disruptive technology (e.g. AI, blockchain) on today's business models. They will gain a better understanding of the business model canvas and cultivate an innovative mindset to drive sustainable growth and profitability.

  • The People Pillar designed to help executives increase their self and team awareness, so that they can build and inspire high performing team to achieve superior results. As managers advance in their career, they need to complement their functional skills with the ability to coach and integrate the efforts of others. They will also need to develop leadership competencies to motivate team members to embrace and 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."
