More and more students are engaging in entrepreneurship as early as their undergraduate years. While many have put in the work to launch their own brands despite majoring in a non-business college degree, being equipped with the industry know-how is a huge help in getting ahead.

For students who want to advance their knowledge on entrepreneurship and learn from business-savvy experts, National University of Singapore (NUS) has a summer program dedicated to helping students become well-equipped with the necessary insights on business and entrepreneurship. 

The oldest educational institution in Singapore, NUS aims to bridge eager-to-learn students with esteemed faculty members and industry experts through their two-week Summer Programme in Entrepreneurship. Expected learning outcomes include: understanding fundamental concepts of entrepreneurship, learning about the diverse startup ecosystems of Singapore and Southeast Asia, and acquiring skills in coming up with a good startup pitch.

While the program isn't free (it costs SGD 4,650 or roughly PHP 169,595), students of University of the Philippines have the chance to snag a scholarship for it, through The UP Office of International Linkages and UPSCALE Innovation Hub.
