Anderson Tan is positively voracious in his search for knowledge and learning. In 2014, while between jobs (and by jobs I mean having sold two companies and being involved in real estate before casting about for a new adventure), he studied continuously computer science, physics, entrepreneurship, philosophy, technology, coding, creative problem solving, space, music among other things through online learning platforms operated by Stanford, MIT, Harvard, Wharton, Yale, Princeton, Babson, Berkeley, Northwestern, IBM, Linux, University of London, University of Edinburgh, University of Oxford, University of Tokyo and many more.
He is a graduate of the Singularity University Global Solutions Program, an immersive experience where only 80 of 2000 carefully selected individuals merge for 12 weeks of 24/7 exponential technologies learning at NASA Ames Research Park, the global epicentre of innovation. That was in 2016, the same year in which he took part in an Executive Space Program at the International Space University. He holds a regular undergraduate degree from Oxford Brookes, UK, where he studied business and information technology. He is an alumnus of Hive, Landmark, Wharton, Asian Institute of Management, Center for Creative Leadership and Dale Carnegie Training.
