Yue-Wen Lim is the Director of International Relations at the School and is appointed as the Asia and Asia-Pacific Chair for PIM. Chairs are in charge of implementing the strategies suggested by the members during PIM’s Annual Meeting, as well as managing the budget, deciding on the structure and contents of the Annual Conference, and addressing the major issues of the association.

“It is my pleasure and honour to be elected as the new Chair of Asia-Pacific region for the PIM network. NUS Business School has been a long and active member of the network, and our participation has allowed our students to exchange with some of the top business school members. As the new Chair, I hope to encourage schools in the region to take full advantage of this network and be key players in this organisation’s evolution in coming years,” says Yue-Wen.  Continue reading

NUS Business School Town Hall 2014

It’s not every day that staff and faculty members of the School are able to come together for a shared purpose – but this is exactly what took place at the Town Hall on Monday, 21 April. An enthusiastic crowd of over 200 people turned out to learn about new initiatives and share ideas on how to support the School in its journey towards embracing more fully its vision, mission and values.

Getting to Know: Christopher Chong

In our ‘Getting To Know’ Series, we regularly feature staff, students, and other community members of NUS Business School, who make us who we are – you know, the ordinary people who make an extraordinary difference to our culture. 

It is no secret that communication between the media and organisations has assumed much greater importance in today’s day and age, due to the evolving media landscape. This is why Christopher Chong tries to keep his mobile phone close at all times, even after dinner and on weekends.

As a senior manager of media relations in the School’s Corporate Communications office, Christopher serves as the main point of contact between the School and journalists, playing one of the key PR roles in the Corporate Communications team. This lesser-known employee (well, not anymore) is responsible for making many at the School famous by getting them media coverage.

We could go on and on, but at the risk of sounding biased (he is, after all, one of our team mates), let us hear directly from Christopher. And, ‘no comment’ was not an option in our interview.

Getting to Know: Candy J Tan

In our ‘Getting To Know’ Series, we regularly feature staff, students, and other community members of NUS Business School, who make us who we are – you know, the ordinary people who make an extraordinary difference to our culture. 

Don’t let her quiet demeanour and soft voice fool you. Candy Tan, the Assistant Manager in the Development office at NUS Business School, and two of her colleagues, are passionate about raising funds to support students, faculty research, professorships, and research centres. In short, they handle a key strategic area for the School: donor relations.

So, if your study expenses at the School are covered through a scholarship or you’ve made a highly subsidised  international exchange trip that you could’nt have afforded otherwise, Candy is one of the people you need to thank. We sat down with this mum-to-be to get to know her better:

Branding and Development Council: A Modest but Major Force

“A brand is not a product or a promise or a feeling. It’s the sum of all the experiences you have with a company.”
– Amir Kassaei, Chief Creative Officer, DDB Global

This was the initial idea that the Branding and Development Council, a small group of members from NUS Business School community, came together with. The BDC was formed to create and build strong differentiation for the School and focus on the development and growth of key stakeholders.

While this sounds like a tall order, the BDC has made significant strides.
