“Large diversity of people and cultures from 19 different nationalities working around the globe with very different educational backgrounds and vast work experience in different industry segments – that is truly called diversity and makes this program so unique. The sharing of professional experiences with my class peers and a course outline focusing on the Asian market helps me broaden my view and understand businesses in Asia”

This program offers so much more than executive level curriculum. It offers perspective from world class professors and practitioners. Your colleagues are senior business leaders of varied functions and industries, from all over the world. The process of discovery, collaboration, and competitive thinking at these levels are far beyond inspiring, they are infectious.

This experience has been enriching beyond the dollar value, time, or energy invested. I highly recommend it for anyone seeking to expand their horizons and push themselves to new intellectual boundaries.

The format is right with the well-thought approach of two weeks every quarter in 6 different locations. We had assignments and reading in between but it allowed us to effectively balance our work with the learning. I was highly interested in a business and technology intersection to the program, and the schools brought the best of this from Asia and USA together.

The candidates of the program is a well-balanced and diverse group – I have learnt as much from my classmates’ experiences and perspectives, as I have from the excellent and truly top-class Faculty from both schools. The program places significant importance in interaction with C-level industry captains through client-visits and case-study driven learning, and this combines both a practitioner element with the academic focus on the program. All of us really bonded as life-long friends. Proud to be a member of the Alumni of both Universities.

Aside from being two top ranked universities, the UCLA – NUS EMBA offered exactly what an executive like myself was looking for: diverse backgrounds, global experiences, exchanges of lessons learned. In addition, the six segments (two weeks each) allowed me to balance work and family time. What a perfect formula.

The program has a good mix of theory and experiential learning. The class discussions were intellectually stimulating. The diversity of the class was certainly a plus, with no lack of creative thinking and differing perspectives. The friendships formed are invaluable.

MARESUKE NAGATOSHI

Each of the two-weeks segments in four different countries was an enlightening journey with 40 other wonderful business leaders from such diverse backgrounds. This incredible cultural immersion experience made me realize what it really means to think out of the box, leading me to an entirely new perspective on how to do business differently in traditional Japanese corporate settings.

UCLA – NUS EMBA is an exceptional program, providing extensive knowledge and experiences in a number of disciplines critical to business and management success. The members of the class come from a wide range of countries and backgrounds; this makes discussions interesting and lively and enhances my way of thinking.

The East-West class mix provides the diversity of perspectives, opinions and most importantly the global network. Also, the schedule and subjects are optimal for the busy global executive who’s looking to gain new knowledge and navigate in an increasingly complex world.

We had assignments and reading in between but it allowed us to effectively balance our work with the learning. The program places significant importance in interaction with C-level industry captains through client-visits and case-study driven learning. Proud to be a member of the Alumni of both Universities.
