Senior officials from three Singapore-based tertiary institutions share their views on postgraduate education in the age of disruption

Professor Kevyn Yong of ESSEC Business School shared:” We plan to focus on three areas to continuously evolve our executive education programmes. First, we are exploring how to better enhance learning with new digital and smart technologies (for example, 3D and virtual reality technologies). Second, we will continue to invest in the expertise base that supports our programme with new faculty. For instance, we recently transferred four professors to the Singapore campus and hired four new professors. In the coming years, we plan to grow this number and expand our faculty with leading-edge expertise that supports our programmes. Third, we are also building on our partnerships with industry experts. So far, we already have partnerships with the Action Community for Entrepreneurship @ Launchpad, the Ascott Group, the CIO Academy Asia, and PricewaterhouseCoopers.”
