Participants' Experience

The full-time (one-year) and part-time (two-year) Nanyang Fellows MBA programme serves as a welcomed sabbatical for busy executives from the public sector who take one year off work to reflect, rejuvenate, and embark on an intense yet enriching learning journey.

Full-Time And Part-Time Learning

The full-time, one-year programme​ format provides an unparalleled opportunity for the Nanyang Fellows to fully concentrate on their personal and professional growth, while learning alongside other highly accomplished peers who come ​from a variety of sectors. 

The Nanyang Fellows MBA programme is also available as a part-time, two-year programme for busy executives who are unable to take a gap year from work to pursue a postgraduate degree.

Lifelong Bond

One of the key strengths of the Nanyang Fellows MBA programme is the small class-size. 

Only a select group of 30 students are in each cohort.  It allows the Nanyang Fellows to get to know everyone in the class, forming close-knit friendships as they receive opportunities to interact with EMBA candidates in the year-long programme. 

This lifelong bond and supportive peer network are built on the Nanyang Fellows’ shared experiences, diversity and varied background that will extend beyond graduation and last a lifetime.​​​
