NYU Stern Executive Education, part of the New York University Stern School of Business, is set to hold a weeklong programme for Asean corporate and public-sector executives on four main themes – globalisation, innovation, entrepreneurship and leadership.
With the Asean region seen as playing a critical role in driving global economic growth, NYU Stern will host the Asean Global Leadership Programme (AGLP) for regional management consulting firm SRW&Co in New York City of the United States from April 16-20.
It will be the first time NYU Stern has hosted the custom programme in the city after eight years of it being held annually at several top business schools in the United Kingdom, China and other cities in the US.
SRW&Co chairman and partner Daniel Wong said the collaboration with NYU Stern would offer its clients a programme designed for business leaders faced with exciting opportunities as well as challenges related to conducting business in Asean.
New York City was chosen because it was an epicentre of global business and a thriving hub of innovation that multinational and technology firms as well as startups called home, said NYU Stern’s dean Peter Henry.
Given its proximity, NYU Stern’s faculty was in constant conversation with the business community and would bring the latest insights on global business leadership and innovation for the participants, he added.
The campus’ hands-on classroom sessions included conversations with local entrepreneurs and company visits to startup technology firms and financial institutions, said Luke Williams, programme co-director and executive director of NYU Stern’s WR Innovation Labs.
