The UCLA – NUS Executive MBA program, a partnership between two of the world’s leading graduate management schools, provides that opportunity in a unique way, capitalizing on the strengths of two Pacific Rim business epicenters, Los Angeles, California, and Singapore, exposure to other technology and financial hubs in Asia, and a learning culture centered on a commitment to scholarship, teamwork and collegiality. As a foundation for global leadership, the program is the perfect setting for blending analytics with practice, local with global, corporate with entrepreneurial, and profit with not-for-profit.

Your peer group – senior level executives from many countries around the globe – is a large part of your learning experience.
