The Master in Public Administration and Management (MPAM) Programme, administered jointly by the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy and NUS Business School of the National University of Singapore (NUS), is a strategic initiative deepening academic and cultural exchanges between Singapore and China. MPAM supports Singapore’s significant role in nurturing a global perspective among tomorrow’s decision makers. This high-level 10-month academic programme, conducted in Chinese, has nurtured over 600 senior government officials and state-owned enterprise (SOE) executives from Singapore, China and Asia over the past 10 years. The MPAM facilitates participants’ understanding of business, policy and governance challenges and broadening their outlook on global issues. More importantly, MPAM connects future leaders of the region, while deepening their appreciation of Singapore’s developmental philosophy and unique experiences. For an academic programme that plays a substantive role in talent development, building networks and fostering mutual understanding across Singapore, China and rest of the world, the MPAM programme’s commitment is indeed commendable.
