Message from the Dean

Welcome to NTU’s Centre of Excellence International Trading!

The tripartite collaboration between NTU Singapore’s Nanyang Business School and College of Engineering, Enterprise Singapore and Corporate Partners has established a great rapport for its flagship International Trading Programme (ITP) with the students.

Centre of Excellence International Trading (CEIT) plays a primary role in the continuing development of international trading value chain for the students. With the comprehensive ITP curriculum, students can expect to gain requisite soft skills and technical knowledge that covers direct relevance to industry requirements.

We hope this can create opportunities for the students to embark towards a rewarding spectrum of career options available in the international trading sector.
