Hi friends,

I am considering SMU full time MBA for January intake. My main apprehension is related to the post mba placements for international students that too in oil & gas sector. I have approx. 8 years of experience in an oil PSU.

Kindly share the information u have pertaining to school reputation and placements scenario.

thanks and regards,

I have a question regarding post-MBA employment in Singapore,I believe many people on this thread can advise me on this.
I am thinking to apply to one of these universities in Singapore, but my concern is that I don't speak Chinese at all and as I understand it greatly limits the number of positions I ll be able to apply after graduation.
Can somebody provide any additional information on employment opportunities for foreigners in Singapore?

Hi,

No one has answered the question regarding placements post MBA at SMU.
Can someone throw some light on the placement records of SMU.

Is it worth spending 60kSGD for the program?

Have been hearing some positive feedback about SMU, but again other than what they talk on the website, no information about placements as such. I would also be interested to know if its worth the 60K.

Hey hi every1,

As I got delayed with my gmat I will be applying in the last round for SMU(R3 - Deadline 15-oct). Does anyone think there are any positive chances of being selected in the last round or will it be a application with no hopes.

Will be waiting for your reply.

Thanks a lot for sharing useful knowledge with us.

Expert's post
This is for the information of all those who are applying to Part time programs of NUS, NTU, and SMU.

We have created a Joint application thread for all the part time students applying to these schools. We would like to welcome every applicant to there for the discussion.

If you are a part time applicant for any of these schools, please add that program and school to your profile.

Good luck to everyone applying and have a nice weekend. :)

Thank You!
