Dean Bernard Yeung, Vice-Dean Susanna Leong and Associate Dean Tay Kuan Ming, along with several other speakers, updated the community about new initiatives, including the 50th anniversary celebrations planned for the year.

“Since 1965, NUS Business School has grown in parallel with Singapore’s own development. This anniversary is an opportune time to cement the theme: Past, present and future – Leading from Asia,” said the Dean. The celebrations will focus on recognising the School’s contributions, connecting with the community and highlighting our impact for the future.
