Just received an admit from NUS for their MSBA course........I am thoroughly confused whether to take it up......I was preparing full throttle for the MBA apps....but I am afraid to let this go lest I dont get a similar opportunity again.....

Any insight would be helpful!

Dear Dreaming,

It's great you got a place. I've also interviewed for the program but have yet to hear back.

The MSBA is different from a traditional MBA path in that this program is focused on data analysis and the world of big data, while a MBA is focused on general management skills while allowing you to specialize in certain areas, eg finance, marketing, etc

It really depends on what is your goal. May I ask when did you interview and when did you get an offer?

I see your WE is in Supply Chain management, and your interest is in strategy and operations. I do not think Business Analytic goes well with that. Don't get carried away with brand value alone. Try connecting with the alumni/current students and find out about what the recruiting companies look in a candidate profile. As far as I know, companies look mostly for Statistics, IT Data warehousing and marketing experience for an BA profile.

Unless you get any other better opportunity in which you have genuine interest, you go for this course. I believe masters should be in an area in which your passion lies.

Hi,

I interviewd on 4th July.....and got the admit on 8th.....

When did u interview and whats ur profile?

The reason I applied at all was because I want to work in Analytics and later go into consulting....Working in analytics will give me a wide range view of various business domais(or so I believe)......I think I will take this opportunity up...

Hi Dreaming,
have you finally taken up MSBA at NUS? If you indeed did, I would be very happy to exchange ideas with you in the Business Analytics domain.
Interestingly, I went through a similar dilemma - choosing between MBA and MSc in 2011. I turned down NUS MBA, continued working and been deferring my study plan; by chance I switched to a semi-professional analytic role and really enjoyed it so far (8 months into the job). I'm based in Singapore so it's a no brainer to pick up something like MSBA, however it is a brand new course.

Dear Dreaming,

Greeting to you! Hope you are doing well.

I am also considering applying for Ms in Business Analytics programs. I am at a very initial stage, yet to give GMAT. It would be really great if you could share some insights from the research that you would have done.

Just to give a small background:

I have a 2 year full-time MBA in Capital Market from a Top 10 B-School in India with a CGPA of 3.5/4.0.
Have 2 years of pre-MBA work ex in IBM as a SAP Business Intelligence Consultant.
Have a 4 year full-time BE in Electronics & Communication from Manipal University with CGPA of 9.1/10.0.
National level Rank 2 (out of 351 teams) in Nomura's M&A Investment Banking Case Study Competition (2013-14).
Currently working (since June 2014) in Nomura's IB (M&A) division. If I aim for 2016 admissions, I will have 3-4 years of work ex by then.

Kindly share:
> What all universities I can target
> Location and cost are not a major constraint, reward in terms of job opportunities is a priority
> How good are the job opportunities in terms of brands and the packages
> What do the adcoms look for, for these courses?
> Any other suggestion from your end would be really helpful


Thanks & Regards,
Gaurav Bansal.
