Executive Development Programmes (English)

Nanyang Centre for Public Administration (NCPA) has over 25 years of experiences in providing Executive Development Programmes (EDP) for senior leaders from governments, universities and corporate world. Our executive development programmes focus on practicality and applicability, drawing from the public administration successes of Singapore over the past five decades.


NCPA has been working closely with and offering these programmes to organisations in Asia and beyond. To date, we have conducted programmes for over 1,000 senior government officials from Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, the Philippines, Malaysia, India and Ukraine. Our experienced faculty work closely to design and deliver customised programmes that tailor to specific training objectives and needs.


Our EDPs offer theme-based customised learning in various areas — public administration and public policy, urban planning and management, infrastructure development, social management, public-private partnership, higher education management and internationalisation development. One of NCPA’s niche research area on the impact of Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) and Singapore’s strategic positioning in linking China with the world are also included in our programmes.




Our EDP programme taps on NCPA’s extensive faculty resources with exceptional expertise and diversity that NTU shares with many different colleges. With an emphasis on practical knowledge and cross-sharing of experiences, our programme invites renowned professors, lecturers and high-profile business leaders and industry experts.


The faculty includes current and former politicians, as well as senior government officials in Singapore; such as Adjunct Prof. Mah Bow Tan, Former Minister for National Development; Mr Raymond Lim, Former Minister of Transport; Adjunct Prof. Zainul Abidin Rasheed, former Senior Minister of State for Foreign Affairs; Adjunct Prof. Ang Hak Seng, Deputy Secretary, Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth.



Official visits to relevant well-established Singapore corporations, industrial parks, government organisations and agencies are an integral part of our programme.  These visits help our participants gain practical knowledge and information through these on-site visits with face-to-face meetings and interactive discussions.


Exclusive visits to NTU’s very own leading research centres such as ‘Energy Research Institute @ NTU’ (ERI@N) are organised to learn about NTU’s experiences as a research-intensive public university.


Participants are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunities to interact with government officials and business leaders; exchange views and gain first-hand experiences.

Participants will gain an all-rounded view through interactive lectures, site visits, and active discussions; translate these insights into innovative solutions to solve the ever-complex challenges in their organisations.​​​​
