NUS’ EMBA ranked among world’s top three

22 July 2013

The Economist has placed NUS’ double-degree programme with the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in the third spot among other global competitors, for its inaugural Executive Master of Business Administration Rankings published on 18 July 2013. The NUS Asia Pacific Executive MBA, taught in both English and Mandarin, also made the list at 43rd place.

Both EMBAs are offered by the NUS Business School, one of only two Asian institutions and the only Singapore school to be listed on this rankings chart.

Delighted by the results, the School’s Dean and Stephen Riady Distinguished Professor, Professor Bernard Yeung said: “The rankings are another indication of the quality of our programmes. As we strive towards being the leading business school in Asia, we will continue with our efforts to enhance our teaching with innovative programmes while developing our research output and industry relationships, so as to help our students succeed in the business world of today and tomorrow.”

For The Economist’s rankings, the business schools were assessed based on two broad criteria: personal development/education experience and career development. Within these categories were 27 more specific yardsticks such as the quality and diversity of students, quality of the faculty and percentage of students who receive a promotion after they graduate.
