Ezmon META will be able to measure your heart rate, body temperature, and activity rates (e.g. calorie burn) like many other products currently do. What we are seeking to do differently is to develop a killer app: a new technology which enables the user to measure their blood glucose using infrared light rather than having to prick themselves multiple times a day.
It’s been just over two months since I came to Yale from NUS to complete the NUS Masters Double-degree programme with Yale School of Management, but it sure feels like a life time when I think about the experiences and memories I’ve gained.

I chose NUS MBA because of the diversity of students, global experiences that are part of the NUS MBA programme, Singapore’s strategic location and the dynamic format of the MBA programme.
