Background about myself
After 4 years’ working experience as HR for various functions mostly in Tech industry in Shanghai and Singapore, I have been thinking about pursuing my MBA last year to explore other business functions and other industries. My experience of HR operations at GE, recruiting at Uber and people analytics at Grab has challenged me to think bigger and be a bigger person. MBA will be a solid catalyst to equip myself with business acumen, analytics skills, and a strategic thinking mindset. That’s why I am here at Nanyang Business School now. Generally, I prefer a shorter program and push myself to utilize study time to learn as much as possible and then get back to work. I’ve also received NUS MBA offer and after considering many key factors, I’d say I’m really enjoying my decision here at Nanyang MBA. This is also a tip for future applicants that you can consider several key criteria to help with your decisions later if you receive multiple offers, so you won’t be too puzzled which one to choose and be clear what’s most important for you realistically.

Fantastic application process
I have to say the whole super fast and friendly application process is also one of the reasons I decided to join Nanyang MBA as well. I really appreciate how the whole admissions team value each candidate and I felt very warm and welcome to join the big family. I believe you all will have a great experience as well. But the prerequisite of a fantastic application journey is for sure “Be ready” and “Reflect on yourselves”. I believe all of you will try to do as much research as you can from alumni, current students, GMATclub reviews, etc. These are all great channels but I would say the key to knowing yourself better and it’s not very essential to look at what others are doing and compare with others’ backgrounds. Among tons of applicants, only the real “You” will stand out.
Amazing support from our admin and career offices
We are really lucky to have very supportive admin and career offices and they have provided super support to our cohort. As current Student Exco VP of Carer Development, I have to say we have amazing support for our classmates together with our career office’s help. Each of us also has a career coach and sector mentor.

Diverse and comprehensive curriculum and professors
I enjoy all the courses so far and we get to know how business leaders think and it has been a fantastic journey to learn lots of interesting knowledge. All the professors are great and easy to approach. They have been super supportive to clear our confusion and coach us to think as a global leader.

Study hard and have fun
The one-year full-time program is no doubt very intense as you can imagine so be prepared:) Thanks to our lovely cohort and our admins office, we had quite a lot of fun together and many more events are awaiting us.
Welcome to join our big family very soon:)
