Career Talk

Up-close and personal with MPP Alumni: Insights into Asian Development Bank

This lunchtime talk will provide a multifaceted perspective on what working in ADB may be like. The session will kick-start with a panel of two industry professionals who are currently working in the Asian Development Bank (ADB), one of whom is our MPP alumni who graduated in 2009. They will share on their career journeys and how the opportunity to work in ADB came about, each having gained a foothold into ADB through different routes. Tina will share on her entry into ADB through the Young Professional Programme (YPP) and what public policy students should know about the vigorous YPP process. Ian will speak on his switch as a mid-careerist from GIC Private Limited into ADB and the learning curve he experienced during his first 90 days assimilating into the ADB culture. The panel will be joined by two MPP students, Liu Man and Bes, who recently did their internship at ADB during the summer vacation in 2017. They will share about their ADB experience from their interview preparation process to the eventual onboarding and completion of their internship.
