L&C Club will be a place to offer MBA students and their family a casual, cozy, relaxing and interesting environment in which fellows from all around our planet in MBA programme can have chance to meet the beauty of exotic culture and get familiar with the manners and social customs from different countries.
Language Basic Course: We will provide entry level language courses weekly to fulfil the demand not only from students but also their family members. The sort of language we teach will be basically based on the survey result. The course will begin after the recess week and temporarily pause at the final exam week. And from the beginning of next semester, the course will be launched again. The club will facilitate the logistics, teaching materials and teacher arrangement. By now we already have 6 volunteers to contribute time and energy to this interaction.
Culture Appreciation: The culture appreciation will focus on the introduction of exotic custom on clothing, diet, drinking, local art and entertainment. For example, if you know how to drink and appreciate the Chinese tea, maybe just in very basic level, you can easily have the common language with most Chinese local person and it will be a helpful bridge to shorten the difference between cultures. Another, Saree is a very beautiful Indian traditional dress for girls, how about we use this chance to teach girls from other countries to know how they could use Saree to show their gorgeous and sexy aspects. Do you want to blabla something about wine with your potential French boss? How about catching the attention from your new Chinese colleagues by announcing you are a big fan of “Erguotou”? (A very famous Chinese strong alcohol, do you want to guess what this name means?)
Social manner and custom: Knowledge of good manner and taboo in different countries is another useful content we want to introduce to everyone. We will collect every highlight points from our course and then summarize them into a handbook classified by nation or race. This handbook will be sent to all of you guys in electronic format at the end of our journey in NUS and passed to next batch as a heritage of student council.

A community can do funny things. 2 can have an opinion, 5 might take a stance, 50 may trigger trends and a 100 can drive a revolution.
At the NUS Marketing Club, we recognize this power of ‘us’, and are motivated towards creating a potent platform for like minds to connect, share and communicate their thoughts and ideas.
Our approach is energetic, hands-on and fearless. You’ll often find our members ready to question, challenge the obvious and passionately voicing their point of view.
As such, the club represents a bunch of average Joes (and Janes) who love to roll up their sleeves and follow a simple 3 step philosophy:
– to be curious
– to be critical
– to be creative
Curiosity helps us explore new opportunities, Criticality ensures our approach is evaluated against the odds, and Creativity fuses our ideas into unique solutions. Our Marketing hang-over terms this as the ‘3C’s that define all our activities, actions and alliances.
Through our verticals of Knowledge, Externals and Membership, we look to empower our members with the tools and cross-faculty skills to become responsible marketers in this shrinking economic environment. Be it consumer products, business to business or even the media, we strongly believe that here at the NUS Marketing Club, there’s room for everyone. All beliefs, voices and talents waiting to be unleashed.
