NUS EXECUTIVE EDUCATION

Stanford-NUS Executive Programme in International Management

Overview

Real-World Strategies for Global Business General Management

Held annually in Singapore for 34 years, the Stanford–NUS Executive Programme in International Management (36th Intake) presents a unique opportunity for leaders to immerse in the vibrant cultures of two of the world's most respected institutions: one renowned for its iconoclastic approach to critical thinking and challenging assumptions; the other for its uncompromisingly high standards and academic rigour.

In two weeks of highly intensive sessions, you will augment your expertise with current insights and knowledge of global and Asian business. Taught by senior faculty from NUS Business School and the Stanford Graduate School of Business, you will gain a thorough grounding on recent developments in business management, strategy and leadership from both sides of the Pacific Rim.

  • The Stanford–NUS Executive Programme was outstanding and a tremendous value, both personally and professionally. The quality of professors, course materials and instruction were all world class. The mix of international students from all industries and government leadership positions infused great insight from the participants as well as instructors. I would strongly recommend this course to anyone who is currently doing business in the Asia Pacific and those who would compete with industries from that region. The lessons are timely and relevant to the economics of our time. I can't imagine a better course for international managers and leaders.
