Why Partner with Yale-NUS College

Yale-NUS College offers a unique learning experience following the liberal arts tradition, which establishes a broad interdisciplinary knowledge base for students. Our educational model encourages students to think critically, to analyse issues from multiple perspectives, and to draw connections between traditionally separate fields of study. Such an approach will help nurture our students to become observant, innovative and progressive thinkers. Complementary to the curriculum is a series of workshops to help students build their leadership potential and become effective communicators. Students’ minds and knowledge will be further broadened by a myriad of experiences outside of the classroom – internships, study abroad opportunities and community service in Singapore and overseas. Four years of immersion in such holistic academic and extracurricular learning will ensure that our students develop the confidence, creativity and cultural sensitivity that will develop them into valuable contributors to any organisation in the increasingly competitive and globalised world.

 

What Employers are Saying about Yale-NUS Students & Interns

“Yale-NUS interns are full of initiative and are always up for a challenge. They are energized by new ideas and their enthusiasm enlivens the team. They are independent workers and creative problem solvers, who can identify new ways of doing things. They are also good team members who play well in a team, whether in leadership or supporting roles. They demonstrate a good awareness of team dynamics, work well with others and exercise empathy in their thoughts and actions.”
Centre for Strategic Futures, Prime Minister’s Office  

Peter (Yale-NUS, Class of 2018) shares about his summer 2017 internship experience at CSF: “I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the Centre for Strategic Futures (CSF). The public service officers at CSF are experienced policy makers from diverse backgrounds who are incredibly enthusiastic about what they do. They were also genuinely invested in my internship experience. Under their mentorship, I learnt to grapple with the complexities of foresight work and witnessed firsthand the kind of creativity that it demands. Overall, working in an open environment where colleagues were unafraid to challenge each other’s’ points of view enabled me to develop my own critical thinking skills and grow professionally.”

“Our Yale-NUS intern, Will’s key responsibilities were delivered with utmost competence. He was not treated as an “intern” but just like any normal colleague,  he was given important tasks that are valuable to the marketing team. His mastery of oral and written Chinese Mandarin was critical in making sure we launch our campaigns on time.”

“Koon Min (Yale-NUS, Class of 2018) impressed us by preparing for his internship before joining, while on his exchange semester. What I appreciated most about him was his team-player attitude – the willingness to help others even without being asked. We found Koon Min to be a strong learner who reacted to feedback quickly and positively. By the end of his internship, he was able to articulate his investment theses independently.”

Koon Min (Yale-NUS, Class of 2018) shares his summer 2017 internship experience in the GIC Infrastructure team: “Over the course of my internship, I was fortunate to have worked on a transaction in the renewable energy space and see it through to closing. The learning curve was steep, but I enjoyed being challenged and found meaning in the work I was doing. Importantly, I really appreciated that my colleagues were willing to both coach me as well as entrust me with real responsibilities. This convinced me that GIC is the place where I can see myself growing on a daily basis, and cemented my desire to return to the firm upon graduation.”

The GIC Internship is a 10-week programme that offers an immersive, hands-on experience of our company’s culture and work environment – one that embraces learning, collaboration, empowerment, and excellence. Find out more about GIC at http://www.gic.com.sg

“It was a joy hosting Valerie, a Yale-NUS intern for the first time this year.

We would love to continue this partnership with Yale-NUS and play our part in nurturing these students!”

“Our Yale-NUS intern, Silvia, has contributed greatly not only with her insights in research, but also by bringing an infectious enthusiasm to the team. She has definitely left a lasting impression on me and the team here at SAP.”

Mr. Benjamin Yap

“Pareen, our Yale-NUS intern, distinguished herself with her ability to quickly and intelligently digest large amounts complicated information – both about deal structures, as well as technologies – a skill she undoubtedly honed in her Liberal Arts curriculum at Yale-NUS.  She was also a very well-liked team member, whose demeanour exuded warmth and professionalism at the same time.  In fact, her direct supervisors felt comfortable enough with Pareen’s professionalism to take her to meetings with senior investment bankers and startup CEO’s almost from her first week! We look forward to continuing the partnership with Yale-NUS in 2018.”
Telenor Group, Digital Businesses
Ms. Genevieve Godwin

“Our Yale-NUS intern, Min, was an incredible addition to the business development team at Time Inc. over the summer where she was able to contribute from day one and proved herself to be efficient, hardworking and highly intelligent throughout her internship.  It was wonderful to work with an intern of this caliber.”
Time Inc., International Business Development
