This review is for NTU
Program Full Time MBA
Class of 2021
I’m Prasanna from Chennai, India. I carry an overall work experience of 5 years, Prior to my MBA I was working at Unilever as a Sales Officer. I’m an FMCG Marketing Aspirant. On a lighter note, I’m a Songwriter, few of my songs have released on youtube.
Why Nanyang MBA?
As my career goal is to transition from Sales to Marketing in FMCG Brand management. The foundation on which I plan to take my career ahead must be strong. After interactions with a lot of people and after researching, I felt NBS MBA will be the perfect platform for three reasons;
1.Specialization track for Marketing Management
2.Global experience along with how businesses work in APAC through practical learning and peer discussions from different nationalities and diverse backgrounds.
3.SPAN project, BSM, and LPG modules which add a unique element to the Program.
Once I figured that I want to pursue my MBA at NTU, My Application process started with connecting with alumni in my target industry and the role and to get an insider insight on careers and how NTU helped them.
The Application process was really smooth and the onboarding process was simple and swift too. Based on the interactions with admin team, I applied in R1 and got my offer within a month. The best part of applying in R1 is that you have the next 6-7 months to plan on other things in advance with respect to personal development, going for a vacation, or learning new skills.
Suggestions for Future Applicants:
