About Campaign

From 30th Apr to 3rd May 2020, more than 20 potential participants from the 2019 intake of NUS MBA students will be participating in a 70 kilometer desert race in Tengger Desert of Inner Mongolia.

The Asia-Pacific Business School Desert Challenge (also known as Yasha) is an experiential cultural athletic outdoor competition for MBA students from top business schools in the Asia-Pacific region.

Yasha embraces the spirit of philanthropy alongside developing important business leadership qualities in MBA students. More than just pushing the participants to breakthrough limits and challenge their way through hiking under harsh terrains and extreme weather in desert condition as a team, Yasha inspired many MBA students to develop passion for life with spirit of giving through this journey of self-discovery.

This year the NUS MBA team will be raising funds and awareness for the needs of palliative care in the Asia Pacific region by donating their proceeds to APHN.

Donations of any amount will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your generosity.
