"Policies and regulations set by public leaders have a great impact on business, investments, economic growth and the society. The NUS MBA-MPP and The NUS MBA-MPA Double Degree programmes are specially designed to prepare these leaders who require expertise in both policy making and business management. I believe our graduates will be visionary, enlightened and enterprising leaders who could serve in a wide range of positions in the public, private and nonprofit sectors."
PROFESSOR BERNARD YEUNG, DEAN OF NUS BUSINESS SCHOOL
"One major recent trend is the convergence between the public and private sectors. We are seeing a greater involvement by the private sector in public services. The public sector is also promoting business as nations promote themselves as desirable destinations for investment and to ensure a level playing field for their companies. A two-way flow of talent between the two sectors has also been beneficial. This may well be the area where our new joint programmes could add value. Graduates of the double degree programmes will be well-versed in the languages of both business and government. Being effectively bilingual, they have a unique competitive advantage in the market place."
