A one-year full-time programme for senior executives from both public and private sectors, the Nanyang Fellows MBA offers an academically rigorous curriculum that addresses the most relevant global economic and management trends and leadership precepts that embrace the best of the East and the West.​​

The programme combines a variety of academic methods to ensure an interactive and in-depth learning experience. Nanyang Fellows learn through dynamic lectures, keynote sessions with industry and government leaders, individual and team projects, peer-based learning, overseas study trips and the case study method.

Developed by Harvard Business School, the case study methodology is widely used in executive education. Using this methodology, Nanyang Fellows sharpen their decision-making and analytical skills by examining authentic business scenarios and defending their recommendations to the group.​
