The third edition of the Africa Singapore Business Forum which took place from 27th to 28th August, 2014 in Singapore, bore much fruit as Nanyang Business School signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Strathmore Business School(SBS) and the Lagos Business School (SBS’s partner institution). Singapore’s business ties with a range of African economies were boosted at the 2014 Africa Singapore Business Forum with a series of deals to expand relations in areas ranging from aviation to education. Education was addressed with these two agreements signed.
The MoU will pave the way for partnerships in research, executive and leadership training, and student exchange programmes between Nanyang Technical University(NTU) and the two African business schools. The first collaboration takes place next month with Nanyang Business School and SBS running the Senior Leadership Managers Programme, a five-day leadership course, in Singapore for 35 senior managers from Kenya and Tanzania.
NTU is ranked as one of the top research intensive universities in the world, and the signing of the MoU will enable SBS penetrate the South East Asia region so as to idealize it’s goal of transforming African leaders.
