Course outline

Business Fundamentals
An in-depth focus on key business concepts to bolster your understanding of critical business functions, best practices and management tenets.

Strategic insights
In this segment, learn how to develop and adapt business strategies to meet the ever-changing market conditions.

Experiential Learning 
Acquire practical knowledge and real-world experience through a series of hands-on modules designed to equip you not only with the core competencies but also the soft skills that are critical to lead effectively in a dynamic, multicultural context.

The Nanyang PMBA’s modular format eliminates the need for out-of-office days and leave. Instead, classes are conducted on Saturdays and Sundays, two weekends a month. This format offers greater control over your schedule and enables full participation, even if you need to travel for work during the week. Other part-time MBA programmes force participants to choose between study, family and work commitments. This often means missing out on one of the most valuable aspects of the MBA experience – peer learning. The Nanyang PMBA is different. By enabling you to deeply immerse yourself in classes, the programme’s unique structure ensures you get maximum value from our faculty and your fellow participants. Drawn from the world’s leading universities, Nanyang Business School’s faculty members are top academics, experienced consultants, ground-breaking researchers and skilled educators in their respective fields. Our teaching staff includes Professor Vijay Sethi, the top business professor in the world, as recognised by The Economist in 2013. We know you have a promising career underway – you have the track record to prove it. That said, our commitment to each participant extends beyond the classroom. In an approach unique to NTU, we offer full access to the NTU Graduate Studies Career Development Office throughout your time on our programme. This dedicated, highly singular support system offers expert advice on the best way to apply your new skills and competencies within your organisation.

The diverse cohort allows for ample opportunities to participate in class and benefit from rich interactions with the faculty and also among students. I obtained a lot of insights from the case studies and which I could apply them at work right away. The Nanyang MBA is the right choice for you if want to continue updating your skills to tackle business challenges in the ever evolving Asian economy.'
