Nanyang Technopreneurship Center (NTC)
NTC was established in 2001 with the vision to become a leading center of excellence for technopreneurship education.
Technopreneurship encompasses not only technology organizations but also organizations that embrace technology significantly and it seeks to promote creativity and innovations within organizations and organizations as entities.
NTC takes much pride in being an important part of NTU. NTC shares the philosophy of the highly respectable Kauffman Foundation and has achieved the rare accolade of being the first and only Kauffman campus outside the United States.
In its quest to achieve its goals, NTC is much aided by the university's strategic plan, the NTU 2015 plan which spells out the university's 5 peaks of excellence in Sustainable Earth; Future Healthcare; New Media; New Silk Road and Innovation Asia. Under Innovation Asia, NTC will contribute to further building a technopreneurial culture.
NTC offers its Master of Science in Technopreneurship and Innovation Program (MSc TIP) as a global entrepreneurship and innovation program based in Asia.
Offered by NTU since 2002, this revolutionary curriculum equips candidates with the skills and experiences to take full advantage of advanced technology and global business practices. The unique teaching pedagogy combines institutionalized learning with global immersion trip to the U.S. (New York, Boston, San Francisco) and an optional trip to China.
MSc TIP aims to develop promising entrepreneurs and leaders with the skills and stamina to build global businesses through an international learning arena beyond the classroom.
