Giáo sư NUS, 27 tuổi trẻ & giỏi nhất trên thế giới
If you walk into one of Sam Yam's classes at the National University of Singapore (NUS) Business School for the first time, you may think he is a student rather than the teacher.
Not only is he just 27, but he also often shows up for lectures dressed more casually than his students, at times even wearing shorts.

Despite his youth, Assistant Professor Yam, who specialises in business ethics, has authored and co- authored dozens of research papers and delivered presentations at universities all over the world.
Since becoming a professor last year, he has already had six papers published in the best journals of his field, including the Academy of Management Review and Journal of Applied Psychology, said Professor Michael Frese, head of the Management and Organisation department at NUS Business School.
"Sam's research has won two Best Paper Awards in the Academy of Management, a pre-eminent association for management scholars."
Just last month, Prof Yam was named in a list of the 40 best business professors under the age of 40 by Poets and Quants, a website that covers business school news. He was the only one under 30 in the list which included scholars from Harvard, Yale and Oxford.
