The NUSRI overseas programme seeks to provide our students an insight into entrepreneurship and enterprise. The fast changing economic environment requires our students to be innovative, flexible and adaptive. This entrepreneurship programme which includes numerous sharing sessions by successful entrepreneurs, thus gives our students critical knowledge and qualities needed to thrive in a highlight globalised world and serves as a motivation for students to always pursue their dreams and aspirations. In the work shadowing segment of the trip, Sirius Scholars are able to gain invaluable industry experience in the area of their interest and discover what it is like to work in the industry. In the overseas programme, they are exposed to the different working cultures globally, giving them the global awareness and cross-cultural skills to function as adaptable leaders who are assets to multi-national companies and are ready for the world.
