NUS MBA VS Nanyang MBA [#permalink] New post 30 Jan 2013, 01:16
Hi guys,

I see that there is no info on the subject and thus the reason for creating a thread to discuss on this. I am a potential student in either of these schools and is planning to start a Part Time MBA program with them in this year's intake.
What do you think of these 2 MBAs? Which do you feel have an edge over the other? Why?

Appreciate your input. Cheers!

You should take this with a pinch of salt.. But IMHO NUS is leaps and bounds ahead of NTU in terms of prestige.. Asked to select one of the two NUS would be a very easy choice....

hi and thanks for your input. may i understand your perspective towards NUS being more prestigious than NTU? is it based on your experience in India or elsewhere? :)

I am speaking solely on the basis of reputation in India. More people know of NUS than NTU. Moreover NUS is almost always ranked much higher than NTU... However, from what I have seen, unless you are a singapore citizen, the job placement opportunities at both the schools are not very bright.

Thanks for your input. You are right, NUS is usually ranked above NTU, with exception of the recent FT ranking. I am a Singaporean and I am looking at staying in Singapore for the next 6 years before considering elsewhere, with Australia in mind. :)

Based on what I've heard from people I used to work with in Singapore, NUS is only slightly better than Nanyang in the traditional MBA/business community but NUS seems to be revered in the Singapore non-MBA world to the extent that there are even some (delusional folk) who believe NUS is equal to or better than INSEAD. Internationally within Asia, (and I loosely include Australia here) NUS is definitely more well-known and probably has a better network than Nanyang. But if the Nanyang P/T programme works better for you and you're not going to be working with laymen, it's probably worth considering.
