Professor S. Viswanathan
Associate Dean, Research
Nanyang Business School


Thank you for considering Nanyang Business School (NBS) for your doctoral education in business. The PhD in Business at NBS prepares you primarily for academic careers as Business School Professors. Depending on the specific research topic that you pursue in your PhD thesis, you may also be well positioned to pursue careers as research scientists and consultants in think tanks, research organizations and corporate research labs.

As a Business School ranked in the Financial Times Top 35, we pursue excellence in research, scholarship, thought leadership and teaching. We have faculty who are well recognized globally for their impactful research contributions in top tier academic journals as well as faculty who are renowned globally for their teaching.

Our goal for the PhD students is two-fold: first, to help each student develop as a first-class researcher; second to encourage each student to develop pedagogical skills and gain teaching experience in their chosen area of specialization. We provide all our PhD students individualised attention and a wealth of resources. Our faculty supervisors actively mentor PhD students to prepare them to achieve their best as researchers and academicians.

Research is a process of discovery and continuous learning. It is an intensive 24/7 activity, but extremely fulfilling. If you have what it takes to succeed, we look forward to receiving your application. ​
