Excellence in Higher Education: Lessons from Leading Universities in Asia

In an increasingly knowledge-intensive world, higher education will play an ever more important role in powering a country or a city’s development. The executive programme on Excellence in Higher Education: Lessons from Leading Universities in Asia provides the ideal platform for university leaders and senior administrators to study the experiences of two of Asia’s top universities – the National University of Singapore (NUS) and The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST).

NUS is ranked 12th on the 2015/16 Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) World University Rankings – the highest among Asian universities.

HKUST is ranked 2nd among the world’s top 50 universities under 50 years old in the QS World University Rankings. Its MBA Program has been ranked among 15 MBA programs in the world since 2010, and Kellogg-HKUST EMBA Program has been ranked No. 1 in the world 6 times in the past 8 years in Financial Times Global EMBA
