PSB Academy celebrates MBA graduates from University of Nottingham, ranked amongst the world's top 1%

SINGAPORE -- (Marketwired) -- 01/13/17 -- The University of Nottingham, founding member of the UK's Russell Group (the equivalent of the Ivy League schools in the US), will celebrate its latest class of 27 graduates from its Master of Business Administration degree programme at a commencement dinner in Singapore this evening.

Offered in partnership with PSB Academy, Singapore's best private education institution*, the postgraduate degree programme will see 27 students graduate from the University of Nottingham. Amongst whom, 19 students will receive a Master in Business Administration and eight of them will receive a Master in Business Administration in Finance.

These graduates from the Nottingham School of Business will receive a globally-recognised Top 12 MBA for Responsible Business Education (Corporate Knights Better World MBA Ranking 2016), before Harvard Business School (13), and Stanford Graduate School of Business (18). The assessment ranks graduate business programs according to their effectiveness in integrating sustainability into the education of future business leaders. This ability to assimilate sustainable practices into core business strategies has become increasingly pertinent among corporate brands, in line with the Singapore government's advocacy for smarter and greener businesses as part of the $1.5 billion, 15-year Sustainable Singapore Blueprint launched by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in 2014.

Graduates from the programme feel confident about their future prospects as they start the year with a sense of newfound vigour upon completing their MBAs. Chan Fang Yih, who majored in finance, topped his MBA cohort this year, and looks forward to exploring a new role and opportunities in the finance industry. "Investment in education has equipped us with the right tools and knowledge and more importantly, holistic perspectives in business management, which will help one become a more nimble team leader and adaptable problem-solver to face future challenges," says Fang Yih, who has accumulated years of experience in the engineering industry.

"Today marks a most significant point in a major chapter of our graduates' lives, and we are all very proud of their achievements. The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide rated us last year as The University of the Year for Graduate Employment -- and that is testament to the reputation and calibre of our graduates from across the world. We hope that through their achievements, and as their careers further develop, that they will become effective business leaders that make a positive difference to the global community," says Professor Graham Kendall, Provost and CEO of The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus.

As part of their expansion with a new 100,000+ square foot "Academy of the future" in the heart of the city this year, PSB Academy welcomed its postgraduate students to the new campus in September last year. In anticipation of greater demand for its brand of industry-ready courses, PSB Academy is planning to nurture more future leaders in its new facility that boasts MBA seminar rooms equipped with advanced video conferencing and other teaching technology to facilitate learning and interaction when it fully opens in May 2017.

"PSB Academy remains a proud partner of The University of Nottingham and we look forward to deepening our partnership, to revolutionize the way management education is conducted, together, and take the Nottingham experience into the future in our Future Academy at Marina Square," says Dr Tan Boon Leing, Head, School of Postgraduate Studies, PSB Academy.
