A Collaborative Approach to Education

Curriculum, the core of education, must keep up with the industry trends and simulate the corporate/ industrial experience to prepare students for a successful professional career. The business world is becoming more competitive and demanding, and it is no secret that candidates have to meet higher expectations. This leads us to one of the most debated topics in the world: the gap between industry and academia. This makes constantly updating the curriculum vital to a student’s development. In fact, it also sets apart the best of academic institutions from the good ones.
Education is not a solo effort. It requires a cooperative approach that goes beyond the institutions and borders. Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) is a great example of such a cooperative approach to education. Over 200 eminent people, including top business and government leaders, academics, and alumni, attended a Singapore-India Dialogue session hosted by NTU last year. The event covered important topics of how education, research, and innovation will change in a post-pandemic world and how to boost technopreneurship in Singapore. It was a big step in strengthening and expanding NTU Singapore’s existing partnerships with India’s top universities and research institutes that started during Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to NTU in 2018.

NTU is the second oldest autonomous university in Singapore, founded in 1955 before Singapore became independent from the British. It is one of the most respected universities in the world by various international measures. This special issue is dedicated to the distinguished Indian alumni of NTU Singapore.
