Bringing together academia and industry
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about great disruption to individuals, businesses and society at all levels. Beyond that, it has provided a new set of acute shocks to seemingly sturdy businesses and principles that have guided our thinking for decades, even laying bare the unviability of many business models. Besides causing landscape shifts and fundamental industry changes, COVID-19 is also causing a recession of indeterminate length and severity.
Set against this backdrop, the need for strategic thinking and advanced leadership among business leaders and owners is immense. As we speak about upskilling our workforce, we also need to pivot senior management and leaders to think about combating industry disruptors, driving operational transformation to increase revenue and reduce costs, and also managing risk and compliance against an increasingly digital world.
In answer to this need, PwC’s Academy is partnering with three top-in-class universities - University of Oxford (Said Business School), INSEAD, and Singapore Management University - to curate a series of Masterclasses tackling topics such as advanced management, leadership, business strategy, finance, corporate governance, and risk management. These Masterclasses qualify for SkillsFuture funding.
PwC's Academy is the specialised external training arm of PwC Singapore, where powerful, practical, and relevant experiential learning solutions are developed leveraging on PwC's core competencies and deep industry knowledge.
