Nanyang Business School

Applications to Nanyang Business School are currently on hold.  GWSB graduate students interested in an exchange at Nanyang Business School should meet with Global & Experiential Education to discuss options.

“They took good care of us, treated us like we were full time students, had a day long orientation with all the students. And when we had questions about anything, the staff were incredibly responsive… there is no other abroad like it - fantastic professors with amazing credentials. And it is like doing multiple abroads in one since travel is so cheap to countries around Singapore.” Matt Hellman, Global MBA ’13.  Studied at Nanyang during the 2nd trimester 2013.
