Amidst the growing global economic pessimism and a slowdown in Asia’s growth markets, I am particularly proud of what we have achieved with our EMBA programme. With the recent start of our EMBA 3rd intake, we have noted a significant increase in the number of senior women leaders taking up the programme this year as well as having a greater diversity in the number of industries represented in the programme – including healthcare, finance, manufacturing, wholesale and retail, FMCG, shipping and logistics, and public sectors.
Similar to past years’ cohorts, we have maintained equally high admission standards by recruiting the most senior EMBA profile in the world where 68% of the current participants hold top management positions with an average age of 43 years and average corporate experience of 20 years. On the other end, many major organisations have continued to demonstrate their tremendous support behind this highly successful programme by sponsoring their top leaders and high potentials to the course.
Designed with valuable inputs from over 100 business leaders across Asia, we have created a unique curriculum that combines the best of Asian and Western management approaches. This is further complemented with a highly interactive teaching methodology and made complete with 3 overseas study missions to Wharton, Indian School of Business and Peking University. You will also get an opportunity to learn and network with some of the most accomplished business peers and world class faculty members. This goes a long way in equipping and
preparing senior global leaders like you for the next business opportunity across domestic and international markets.
There is a great deal more for me to be proud of. I encourage you to read on, visit our website, attend our information sessions and speak to our Admissions team. In the near future, I hope that you can be part of our growing footprint across Asia and the rest of the world. See you in class soon!

OUR GROWING FOOTPRINT ACROSS
TRAILBLAZERS OF
ASIAN BUSINESSES The SMU EMBA programme was designed back in 2010 with the global senior leader in mind. To rise to the challenge of creating an impactful programme, we invited over 100 senior executives and business leaders throughout Asia to join us in designing and building a programme which would be transformational and of great relevance to Asia. The result is a compelling programme built around delivering a blend of forward-looking advances in business research and industry practice.
Our intensive 12-month programme also provides the unique opportunity for our participants to study at four different locations. Aside from Singapore Management University, participants will study under top professors at The Wharton School in US, Indian School of Business in India, and Guanghua School of Management in China. This approach of delivery in four great cities is designed specifically to expose our participants to different ways of doing business in these strategic locations.
In the SMU EMBA programme, we also provide participants with ample opportunities to add value back to their organisations by exposing them to cutting edge ideas, rigorously tested theories and a curriculum which allows them to engage in application- based projects. The SMU EMBA programme is a true reflection of our strong teaching and research. It will provide the knowledge, inspiration and insights for you to succeed.
As the Dean of the Lee Kong Chian School of Business, I invite you to consider our EMBA programme. I believe you will discover that studying at SMU will be a turning point in your
life. Combined with our passion and ethusiasm, you will have new skills to drive innovative growth. If you are ready to make a difference in your organisation’s development and the future of business in Asia, we invite you to enrol in our EMBA programme.
We look forward to embarking on this journey towards excellence with you.

Chaired by Professor Rajendra K. Srivastava, Provost and Deputy President of SMU, the SMU EMBA Task Force set out to develop a programme that would arm senior business leaders with a global perspective and an Asian focus. Beyond in-depth research and feedback solicitation from various sources, the task force sought feedback from over 100 industry leaders across Asia through a series of round-table discussions held in various cities like Shanghai, Mumbai, Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh, Singapore and others.
