Dean’s message

“ Policies and regulations set by public leaders have a great impact on business, investments, economic growth and the society. The Master in Public Policy & Master in Public Administration programs are specially designed to prepare these leaders who require expertise in both policy making and business management. I believe our graduates will be visionary, enlightened and enterprising leaders who could serve in a wide range of positions in the public, private and non–profit sectors.” Professor Bernard Yeung Dean & Stephen Riady Distinguished Professor NUS Business School National University of Singapore

“One of the major trends of our time has been the convergence between the public and private sectors. We are seeing a greater involvement by the private sector in public services. The public sector is also promoting business as nations promote themselves as desirable destinations for investment and to ensure a level playing field for their companies. A two-way flow of talent between the two sectors has also been beneficial. This may well be the area where our new joint programs could add value. Graduates of the double degree programs will be well versed in the languages of both business and government. Being effectively bilingual, they will have a unique competitive advantage in the marketplace.”
