UCLA - NUS Executive MBA

Beyond the Classroom

UCLA NUS EMBA Program beyond classroom

The UCLA – NUS Executive MBA program’s curriculum is carefully designed to align and integrate with each specific location and provide a valuable experiential component that adds to the richness of the classroom learning and shows participants firsthand how the concepts and strategies they learn are applied in practice within the local context. This is accomplished through a variety of means, including visiting regional companies, hosting local speakers, holding discussions with company representatives to supplement case discussions, and simply by experiencing the different regions outside of classroom time.
