Saving dollars and cents with business analytics

After graduating from NUS in 2014, the Electrical Engineering graduate began working in Hewlett Packard Enterprise where he witnessed an experienced data scientist help the company save “millions of dollars” every year by using predictive and prescriptive analytics.

In solidarity with Mexico

On 19 September, a 7.1 magnitude earthquake ripped through Mexico City, devastating the area.

Sadly a number of students from Tecnológico de Monterrey, the home university of EGADE Business School, one of our partner business schools in the Global Network for Advanced Management (GNAM), were among the casualties.

GNAM is about more than just academic collaboration, we are a community that supports one another.

In this moment of crisis for our friends in Mexico, we have the opportunity to stand together and help. At NUS Business School we express our support for our GNAM friends at EGADE and at the Tecnológico de Monterrey and stand in solidarity with them.

If you wish to help, you can make a donation directly to the Mexican Red Cross, through the Cruz Roja Mexicana Amazon wishlist, or through another charity helping those in the area.
