In 1990, MIT Sloan and Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore signed a five-year agreement to establish collaborative activities in management education and research. MIT Sloan helped NTU further develop its management program by working with faculty at NTU.  NTU faculty enrolled in MIT Sloan programs, and the two schools held joint conferences and symposia. MIT Sloan assisted NTU to establish its business school and a twelve-month Nanyang Fellows Program that offered immersion in Asian business practices and exposure to the West.

While the formal MIT Sloan-NTU agreement has expired, the relationship endures. In April 2012, NTU sent executives to MIT Sloan for a custom program focused on sustainability.

An exciting outgrowth of the MIT Sloan-NTU collaboration is the Singapore-MIT Alliance, a collaboration among MIT, NTU, and the National University of Singapore that promotes innovative engineering and life science education and research at a global level. 

"Three things impress me the most here at MIT: energy, diversity, and creativity. As an IFF, I am so fortunate to be here and to learn from the "masters" of graduate education. Everyone here is so generous that they share with us their experiences and expertise. It is truly an eye-opening and mind-blowing adventure which I will remember forever."
