I was replying to a PM regarding some MBA programs offered in Singapore. Since I already have a type up, I thought I might as well post it here too.
Singapore has only two universities right now offering MBA programs, National University of Singapore (NUS) and Nanyang Business School (NSB) @ Nanyang Technological University (NTU). The other local university, Singapore Management University (SMU), does not offer a MBA program as yet (SMU offers MPA, M.SC in Finance, Economics, Wealth Mgt etc)
There're programs offered in Singapore as well, but mostly foreign programs, for intsance MBA from Chicago GSB, INSEAD, LBS, Buffalo etc.
NUS (ranked 92 recently) alone has a number of MBA programs.
1) General MBA
2) MBA with Specialization in Real Estate
3) MBA with Specialization in Health Care Management
- For the three programs above, the GMAT cutoff is above 674.
4) International MBA -
- Joint MBA program with Peking Universit
- Cut-off GMAT Score: 620 (AWA 3.5, V28, Q37)
- 3 years work experience
5) APEX-MBA (English) -- Also offered in Chinese
- PT program
- GMAT may be reqiured (case-by-case basis)
- 8-9 years work experience
6) UCLA-NUS EMBA
- Joint EMBA program with UCLA
- Minimum 10 years work experience
- GMAT program not required, unless prior academic work does not show distinction or clear evidence of strong quantitative and logical reasoning skills
NBS (unranked) also has a number of programs:
1) EMBA (English)
- Minimum 8 years FT work experience
- High level of English proficiency
- Company sponsorship is encouraged
- No mention of the GMAT though
- General MBA, or with specialization in Accountancy, Banking and Finance, International Business, Marketing, Technology
- 2 years work experience
- GMAT is required, but the cut-off is not mentioned. I figure 660 and above should be safe
Also included in the Nanyang MBA is a double masters program.
- Tie up with St. Gallen in Swtzerland and ESSEC Business School in France
3) MBA (Nanyang Fellow)
- FT program
- Collaboration with MIT
- At least 8 years of management or senior professional experience
- Recommendation from organisation's CEO or equivalent
- No mention of the GMAT
Of these three rankings (BW Intl, EIU, FT) I find EIU and FT more useful and a better representation of the "true" reputation of the school. BW Intl. includes so few schools and has some rankings that do not seem consistent with reality (e.g. Queens above all of Top Cluster Europe and all of Top Cluster Canada, ESADE ahead of IESE and LBS)
Another cluster that students ask about is Top Cluster Canada:
As usual the schools in the cluster are in alphabetical order.
I agree about Queens - its an abnormality i guess but then again Babson in top 25 in BW rankings??
Other than this, am not sure how much EIU rankings are followed especially bcos from what I read and know quite a number of schools don't participate in their rankings..the same goes for WSJ & Forbes rankings as well, the former is a joke by the way.
