With support from Enterprise Singapore and collaboration with the commodity trading community, the Professional MBA in International Trading Specialisation was developed to grow the talent pool for the trading sector. The programme brings current issues in international trading into the classroom. These range from adapting to changes in global trading rules and regulation, to sustainability and disruptions in the industry caused by technological advances. 

Our Supporting Programme Partner, Enterprise Singapore will offer a 50% tuition grant for a limited number of qualified applicants. The grant is only applicable for the tuition fees, excluding GST, and any additional costs for the one-week segment in Geneva.​

Held on alternate weekends over 18 months at an accessible central location, the programme is delivered across 20 high-impact modules. In addition to the 14 core modules of the PMBA programme, candidates in the International Trading track will complete six specialisation electives that focus in depth on key roles, responsibilities and challenges that are unique to the international trading sector.
