USP has invited Yash Vardhan Kanoi (Industrial and Systems Engineering + USP, Class of 2015), who is joining McKinsey and Company, to share with USP students on how to prepare oneself for a career in management consulting.
Student-led and in its third year, the Asian Undergraduate Summit (AUS) 2017 themed “Leadership in a Complex World: Disruptive Change in Everyday Life” started a month ago with the foreign legs in China, India, Thailand and Indonesia. The Singapore Leg will continue the discussion on disruptive change and innovation. The programme incorporates content building through lectures, site-visits and panel discussions, and skills building through Design Thinking workshops conducted by student facilitators. Through AUS2017, it is hoped that participants (close to 200), being future leaders of the world, will gain a nuanced understanding of disruptions, and propose ideas that can inspire and bring positive impact to societies in and around Asia.

Two USP students will spend a month in Ecuador on a programme that combines global collaboration, new technologies and impact-oriented learning activities. During the fieldwork phase of this program, students will be placed with Social Entrepreneur Corps, a social enterprise that effectively utilises social entrepreneurship as an international development approach in Latin America. Students will work directly with Social Entrepreneur Corps field professionals and social entrepreneurs in Ecuador to help establish new, and grow existing, micro-consignment supported businesses.
