Being away from home is never an easy move. Especially if you’re flying almost halfway around the world, and having to attend classes with practically strangers. However, you’re never a stranger for too long when you’re Singapore, and everyone bonds over food.
With final exams looming and the semester coming to an end, Outside-in caught up with Amber Deltgen of Wisconsin School of Business and Ashley Herr of The University of Texas at Austin, as they share their experiences in and around NUS Business School and Singapore.
Recently, Mr Yu Minhong, Founder and Chairman of New Oriental Education & Technology Group, a private educational services provider in China, led his team of senior executives to Singapore on a learning journey. Through a custom executive programme, the week long knowledge exchange addressed the current marketplace realities, trends affecting competitive advantage as well as effective management practices.
Outside-in speaks to Mr Yu in between his classes as he shares the importance of continuous learning and training, even when you become a boss.
