Once every two years, we recognize the achievements of alumni who have distinguished themselves as leaders in the private and public sectors. These are men and women who have made a difference in industry and society, whose accomplishments are a reflection of both their leadership acumen and NUS Business School’s vision of excellence.
This year, a total of 10 outstanding individuals from industries and fields such as agriculture, entrepreneurship, logistics, healthcare, real estate and sports were honoured. Their impact as leaders is seen not just in Singapore, but also in major economies like China and Japan. In addition, the School’s eminent alumni serve on boards across industries in Singapore and elsewhere in the region, and exemplify NUS Business School’s vision of leading from Asia. The recipients were presented their Awards by Singapore’s Minister for Trade and Industry, Mr Lim Hng Kiang.
“NUS Business School has been instrumental in nurturing business leaders, not just for Singapore, but also the region and world,” said Peter Seah, Chairman of DBS Group and alumnus of NUS Business School (BBA Honours, 1968). “Today, it has almost 3,000 students and thousands more alumni, after starting out with a pioneer batch of just 22 students, of which I was one. I am heartened by how the School has adapted well to changing business landscapes and practices.”
At the Awards ceremony, Minister Lim also launched the School’s 50th anniversary celebrations with the unveiling of its 50th anniversary logo. Inspired by the School’s Mochtar Riady Building, the logo design features reed-like columns symbolising flexibility and stability.
