The NUS MBA provides an energising forum for growth and discovery that will prepare you for leadership roles in today’s competitive global marketplace. Merging East and West, the MBA curriculum integrates Western business models and leadership tenets from a distinctly Asian perspective.
Still deliberating on whether to take on an MBA, here’s what our students and alumni have to say of their experience.
The NUS MBA programme gives you the chance to spend a semester abroad at one of 62 top universities worldwide. The experience will expose you to new cultures, political systems and economic environments, and widen your perspectives of international business.
NUS partner schools are members of the prestigious Partner in International Management consortium, an international network of the leading business schools. Member schools reflect the highest standards of management education excellence and deliver a high-calibre MBA or equivalent degree in management.
