Almost Over...

By: Filda Yusgiantoro

I can’t believe now we are in our 3rd trimester! The time passed so quickly that I remember clearly on the day we had for our school’s orientation which I had my first outbound with full of fun and laughter. I am also very happy to meet new friends and (secretly) I do not regret at all to take my husband’s advice for taking Nanyang MBA in Singapore. It was the best decision in my life!

As we are entering T3, a few of our friends from our batch will leave by the end of this trimester. A part of them will go to another country for exchange, a part of the full timers will actually finish all of their course because they had speed up and overload themselves with extra modules since T1, and yet, they still got good grades. Hence, WIB club for the first batch will also finish in the end of T3. It was the time in WIB club, which I perceived as the most exciting moment during my MBA and will be an unforgettable journey.

Clarie Kwa, my co-partner running this club, is a lady who I admired most because she has full of ideas, an excellent organizer and a great leader. Both of us work really well with each other since the beginning of the initial set up of the club.

For our beautiful and supportive WIB members, you ladies rock! All of you are the ones that make me and Clarie go on to continue to make this new club exists and to fulfill our commitment to provide platform for all of us and to prepare for us to be a great woman leader in the future.

I believe that all of us enjoy our time in the club. Once we have spread our wings after MBA, we know that we have built a one strong community together.

A community called the “Nanyang MBA Women In Business club”.

18 March 2012 - Nanyang MBA Olympics

Nanyang MBA Olympics: London Olympic, MBA Olympics, Special Olympics Sin...:

Forget the Year of the Dragon. This is the year for Olympics. In a couple of weeks, we are going to kick off with our MBA Olympics 2012, so hope you all have formed your teams and are getting ready for the games!

As mentioned earlier, MBA Olympics was started last year by the CSR club of Nanyang MBA. This year it is going to be a joint event between CSR club and Women In Business (WIB) of the Nanyang MBA. The aim of this event is to provide all MBA students in Singapore to get together and have some fun together while raising awareness and funds for a worthy cause. Last year funds were raised for Cambodia Trust but this year we thought we would go for a local organisation and after some searching, came upon Special Olympics Singapore.

This is a non-profit organization that dedicates itself to providing sports training and competitions for persons with intellectual disabilities, giving them opportunities to develop physical fitness, self-esteem and confidence, and become productive and respected members of society.

To add a bit of twist to the event, we have planned a few exhibition matches with teams from Special Olympics Singapore AND they have been training, which is more than I can say for our students (sorry guys, don't kick me from the team).
