Real-World Strategies for Global Business

Held annually in Singapore, the Stanford–NUS Executive Programme in International Management 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.

This programme is one of the recommended programmes on the NUS structured leadership development pathway.
