 The Nanyang Fellows MBA is a full-time one-year elite MBA Programme designed for exceptional mid-career executives destined for the pinnacle of leadership. The programme was launched in 1998 by Dr Tony Tan, then Deputy Prime Minister of Singapore. 

About

  • Each year, a small and select group of about 20 participants each year, from both private and public sectors and across the continents, join the programme for a journey of profound and intense learning.
  • The learning begins in Singapore, and continues later on in three universities in the United States: Wharton Business School at Philadelphia, MIT Sloan in Boston, Massachusetts, and UC Berkeley at California. During the first half of the Programme, a key part of the learning takes place in a foreign country for the Overseas Business Study Mission.
  • The Programme includes a series of Business Leadership Seminars where participants gain privileged insights from the experiences of top Asian and international CEOs and business and government leaders through closed-door dialogues.
  • At the end of the challenging journey, the Nanyang Fellow is rewarded with a firm conceptual foundation and practical knowledge of business models which embrace the best of east and west business practices, sensitive to the cultural diversity of business dealings within a global environment. You will also have established lasting friendships with other bright and dynamic leaders, from both the developed and emerging economies.
