“The PhD (by Research) programme offered by the NUS Department of Psychology gave me the opportunity to further my interest in Social Pscyhology, develop my ideas and grow intellectually as a researcher. I was privileged to have had the chance to interact with many other researches both locally and internationally during the course of my study. Apart from the conducive learning environment at NUS, I am especially grateful for the support from my supervisor, other faculty members and the teaching and administrative staff from the Psychology Department. They were integral in making my journey truly enriching and enjoyable.”

Passion for the Asian Market



“While at NUS, my advisors encouraged me to develop interests in Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar and combine them with my passion on Chinese political economy and investment. After completing my MA in NUS, I went into the private sector and am now working with Nielsen, the market research firm, within their consumer neuroscience wing – Nielsen Neuro. I am a consultant and business developer and my area of focus is on the Malaysian market.”

Applying Skills in the Real World


“The Masters in Applied Economics programme has allowed me to expand my knowledge on various economic disciplines and to think critically on how to analyse real world issues using economics. More importantly, I have benefited greatly from the research experiences and guidance of my professors, stimulating discussions with my classmates as we scramble to complete our projects, and illuminating department seminars attended. I am excited to apply the economic tools that I’ve learnt in my future work.”
