2030 FUTURE LEADERS PROGRAM

 

BACKGROUND

In his Singapore Budget 2020 speech, Singapore’s Deputy Prime Minister Mr Heng Swee Keat said that the Singapore Government targets for at least 70 percent of students from the country’s Institutes of Higher Learning (IHLs) to gain overseas exposure to the ASEAN region, China or India.

 

DPM Heng envisions a new initiative where our local students will be well-prepared to thrive in other countries and cultures, including in Asia, to be asia-ready and future-ready.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The 2030 Future Leaders Program is a career development program designed to help YOUths prepare for their career through future skills recommended by the World Economic Forum – global citizenship and innovation skills.

The program aims to enable YOUths to gain a holistic understanding of the political, socioeconomic and cultural context of the ASEAN region, China and India to take full advantage of economic opportunities in the future. YOUths can expect to learn about innovation and entrepreneurship within organizations and apply what has been learnt.

INNOVATION & ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Anticipated to be one of the global problems by 2030 is rapid technological innovation. Therefore enabling the workforce to be as innovative and adaptive to technological changes will help our YOUths to stay relevant economically, which may be a potential solution to combat rapid technological innovation. 

Also, according to a report from CNBC, a YPO Global Pulse Survey gathered from Global CXOs revealed that companies want innovative employees and according to the MITSloan Management Review, innovation teams will need to become more enterprising to succeed.

ASEAN+ KNOWLEDGE AND EXPOSURE

According to a PwC research, the global economic power is shifting and competition for jobs will become increasingly global. Also, the World Economic Forum (WEF) predicts that by 2030, Asia is expected to contribute approximately 60% of global growth.

With the reasons stated above, understanding Southeast Asia, China and India will become crucial for our youths who will be competing in a job market that is transforming due to economic shifts and digital transformations occurring across markets displacing existing jobs and creating new ones.

This is a 2-week program (held online in the evening and some weekends) consisting of forums and workshops spearheaded by industry experts who will be contributing their valuable expertise and guidance across a range of topics with a particular focus on innovation and entrepreneurship in an ASEAN+ context. 

The program will culminate in a live case challenge where YOUths will get to apply what they have learnt by collaborating with leading high-potential tech startups to develop and pitch an international expansion plan.
