Overseas Business Study Mission

The objectives of the Business Study Mission (BSM) are to enrich the Nanyang Fellows’ broad knowledge of global developments, through learning from a focused classroom study and an overseas field trip while working on their MBA dissertations. The rationale for the overseas trip is to expose the Nanyang Fellows to the cultural, social, political and business dynamics that form part of the larger regional or international platform for competitive players in the marketplace.

The BSM is intended to provide the Nanyang Fellows with an opportunity to study a specific topic or issue and to conduct a case study in the selected country. Through this they will study particular segments of business and industry, and corporate and government entities, to gain insights and learn relevant best practices. The learning benefits include the development of critical thinking, understanding and appreciation of new cultural and social environments and integration of the learning experiences within the larger Nanyang Fellows MBA Programme.

Previous Business Study Missions have been in Silicon Valley, New York, London, San Francisco, Athens, Bangalore, Dublin, Brussels, Cambridge, Helsinki, Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Tokyo, Sydney, Berlin, Munich, Toronto and Copenhagen. Topics for the case studies often involve the study and reporting on a potential new business or geographical area. These are often with an Asian element. The work usually requires some independent research, possibly discussion with selected customers or suppliers, an element of ongoing discussion with the company and a final written report presented to the company.
