Participants' Experience

Dynamic Classroom Experience With A Career-Friendly Format   

The Nanyang EMBA is delivered in 6 segments across thirteen months, with each segment lasting 1 – 2 weeks. Classes are conducted from 9am to 6pm daily during each segment. This format allows you to fully immerse yourself in all aspects of the EMBA experience, from learning to networking, with minimal disruption to your career.

Be ready to engage in a robust, experiential, and collaborative classroom experience. We employ various teaching and assessment methods, including group work, assignments, and case studies that ground your learning in the real world, enabling you to apply what you learn immediately and make an impact in your organisation.

The diversity and seniority of your fellow participants will also expose you to a wealth of different industry and cultural perspectives. This is a unique opportunity to step beyond what you know share ideas and best practices and challenge your thinking in journey of leadership transformation.


International Immersions  

To successfully manage business in today’s global digital economy, it is critical to understand the cultural and inherent distinctions between the two largest economies, the United States and China. 

Being situated in the heart of Asia’s growth hub of Singapore, the Nanyang EMBA immerses you in classes at two of the most prestigious universities in these economic powerhouses – the University of California, Berkeley, and Tsinghua University. Both universities are at the forefront of research and education in technology, innovation, and leadership, providing an unrivalled environment to expand your global perspectives in these areas, gain insight into the digital acceleration strategies shaping the future, and hone your cultural dexterity for the hyperconnected world. 


Impactful Networks 

When you join the Nanyang EMBA, you will have access to our EMBA alumni community and the entire Nanyang Business School and NTU Singapore global network, plugging you into a powerful source of connections and opportunities. 

Our cutting-edge programme draws on the expertise of NTU’s network of world-class research centres, which are blazing trails in digital transformation, cultural intelligence, emerging markets, and Asian consumer psychology – areas of interdisciplinary knowledge that successful leaders must possess. You, too, can take full advantage of this rich resource, whether to shape company strategy or advance your professional growth.

Class of 2017 
Associate Partner, Tax

I started the EMBA journey with high expectations and I must say the programme has met my expectations and beyond. The professors were exceptional, pushing us beyond the boundaries of our traditional thought process, guiding us through a variety of challenging and interesting business topics and case studies, opening our minds to multiple perspectives and helping us develop new competencies. The programme has been intense and it did seem almost impossible to combine work, family and studies, but I did it and it was worth every bit of my sacrifice.

It was one of the best decisions I have ever made, to do an EMBA with Nanyang Business School, with modules that were conducted in Wharton Business School as well as Haas School of Business in the US. It boosted my career trajectory. Having a class that was diverse in culture and industry definitely made learning more enriching and inspiring for us.
