Experience during the program


This review is for NTU

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2020

Experience during the program

Background: I have about 4 years experience in Risk Assurance (Internal audits and operational reviews) with PwC, India. I was mostly engaged in a lot of business process audits and was exposed to industries such as manufacturing, retail and IT.

Application process: I mostly applied for schools in Asia, as it was I knew the returns on my investment would be easier to recover. It was also closer to home. I applied for the first round at NTU. The application process was very smooth. The Admissions team was very prompt with responses and also willing to accommodate any specific requests. I decided to be present for a one-on-one interview, but an option for a Skype interview was available for my convenience. The results were out within the deadlines specified on the website.

Typically, post confirmation, a person from the Admissions team will liaise with admitted candidates, and are available on call/ Whatsapp for any questions. Webinars are scheduled with current students at least twice during the applications cycle, for any questions from admitted candidates.

The Program: NTU is very well-reputed and has a diverse program, as well as a diverse cohort. Electives available are very specialised. I have taken the General Management specialisation, where I have the freedom to pick electives across specializations such as Finance, or Strategy and Innovation. Classes involve a lot of case study analysis, and professors make it a point to push you beyond your comfort zone. The curriculum also include a Business Study Mission (I traveled to Tokyo for company visits this year) and a SPAN (real-time consulting project) that goes on for about 6 months. Overall, the program brings about an experiential learning curve, and is value for money.

About professors, classes and curriculum

Faculty and Staff: The professors are very experienced in their fields. They are also very approachable and willing to entertain student's concerns and questions via email/ meetings. The Admin team is also very helpful, and they essentially become your friends. They will go over and above to ensure that all students' interests are catered to, whether schedule-related or other administrative issues. We also have mid-year reviews for every professor/ elective, where the batch gets to voice concerns/ appreciation. There is an online review as well.

About job placement process

The Career Office at NTU is helpful when it comes to networking with alumni and companies. However, you are responsible for your own job applications. The Career Office also allocates a consultant to guide you with your resume and other job application issues. There is also an external career coach who is available for on-on-one coaching sessions.
