Singapore, 30 April 2019 – Opportunity enables success – the mission for Nanyang Business School (NBS) on its recent launch of Equal Opportunity Fund. An initiative made possible by the NBS Alumni Advisory Board that allows students from underprivileged backgrounds a valuable platform for overseas exchange opportunities.
As a socially-responsible firm, we believe in contributing to the society at large, beyond the business domain, particularly in the education space. It all started from the global financial crisis back in 2008. The firm recognised the need to step out, and has since offered its Nexia TS scholarships and internships for the financially needy students to help in their holistic learning journey.
The NBS Equal Opportunity Fund is also open to donation from the public to make a gift to support the next generation of bright minds to achieve their career goals and making a positive impact in Singapore and the world. To find out more about giving, please visit https://bit.ly/2VltOvD.
“Every dollar given is a dollar benefiting someone. As the Chairman of NBS Alumni Advisory Board, I would like to express my gratitude to the board members who share the same vision to actualise one’s dream to success. With the Equal Opportunity Fund, aspiring students can focus on their learning experiences by taking the giant stride across the horizon without the financial strain.”
Henry Tan, Group CEO and Chief Innovation Officer, Nexia TS
