Topic: The Value of Postgraduate Degrees
Speaker:
Assistant Professor Hairon Salleh
Assistant Dean, Higher Degrees by Coursework, Office of Graduate Studies & Professional Learning, National Institute of Education

Synopsis:
This talk focuses on the question, “Why pursue postgraduate degrees (e.g., graduate diplomas, master’s degrees, doctoral degrees) which are seemingly more theoretical when micro-credential certifications are made more available to adult learners?” – in the context of the Singapore SkillsFuture (SSG) movement, where the idea of skills has received increasing emphasis.

*Lunch will be from 12:40pm onwards.
Topic 1: Digital Platform Business Models
Speaker:
Dr. Jan Ondrus
Associate Professor, Information Systems

Synopsis:
Google, Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Uber, Airbnb......all have something in common. They successfully operate digital platform business models that scale at an unprecedented pace. These companies conduct business beyond their respective industry boundaries. They became ecosystem orchestrators driven by purpose. In an ecosystem strategy, value sharing is bound to be more inclusive, and therefore more sustainable. As a result, the rules of doing business are radically different from the ones used by traditional companies. Classic business concepts such as industry and value chain became irrelevant. More than ever, business leaders need to understand the fundamentals of platform and ecosystem strategic thinking to thrive in the digital age.

Speaker:
Prof. Aarti Ramaswami
Deputy Dean, ESSEC Asia-Pacific
Academic Director of the ESSEC Global MBA program

Synopsis:
What makes a successful career? What does career success mean to you? What factors could we leverage to enhance our own career success? In this presentation we will talk about four levers, so to speak, that can influence one’s career success. In this talk we will focus on a person’s fit with the job and organization, how one can learn to job-craft should fit seem lacking in some areas, how developmental relationships such as mentoring and our social capital gained through networking can help us advance personally and professionally, and finally what types of international experience can truly make a difference to your career.
