NUS BUSINESS SCHOOL: It has the highest ranking MBA and Executive MBA programmes in Singapore

The NUS Business School’s Master of Business Administration (MBA) programme has been ranked 23rd in the world in the Financial Times (FT) Global MBA Rankings 2011. This is the highest FT ranking ever achieved by any Singapore MBA programme.

In terms of employability, the School saw 93% of its graduates employed within three months of graduation, whereas the average of the 22 higher-ranked schools was only 88%.

The post-MBA salary increase of its graduates registered 140%, compared to the average of 125% for the 22 higher-ranked schools, which is an indication of the value-add of the NUS MBA.

NUS MBA graduates also ranked ninth in the world for international mobility and 12th for international experience.

Dean and Stephen Riady Distinguished Professor of NUS Business School Prof Bernard Yeung said: “While rankings are just indicators, we are greatly encouraged by this recognition of being 23rd in the world. We are devoted to providing top quality teaching and memorable educational experience for our students, and undertaking rigorous research that benefits both practitioners and academics. We are very glad that the quality of our programme is acknowledged. We are also very happy that the other Singapore-based business schools are highly ranked too, which signals that Singapore is indeed a hub for higher education in business and management. I am sure that we will all work together to level up further.”
