Guaning Su led Nanyang Technological University, one of Singapore’s leading institutions, for eight years. He was also head of the Defence Science Organisation where he was instrumental in laying the foundations for the country’s research agenda and served as the deputy secretary (technology) in the ministry of defence.

He sat down with Times Higher Education at the recent THE Asia Universities Summit at Khalifa University to share his advice on leading a university for present and future leaders. 


University leaders from North America, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia are taking part in Times Higher Education’s first Leadership and Management Summit at City University Hong Kong, on 17-19 July 2019, which will focus on management models adopted by universities to meet the challenges of the next few decades.
