Study MBA in Singapore

Updated on June 9, 2012

Study MBA

Here in Singapore, postgraduate studies are slowly popping up amongst the business schools. As more and more programs are being set up for postgraduate students, local students will no longer need to travel far and wide all over the globe to get the best postgraduate education. Instead postgraduate programs here in Singapore offer such quality; they are attracting the postgraduate students from across the region.

Originating in the United States, the Master of Business Administration (or MBA) is a master’s degree in business administration that attracts graduates from many different academic specializations. With more and more MBA programs being offered in Singapore, let us take a look at the some available ones with better accreditation.

Perhaps the best MBA program being offered here in Singapore is the INSEAD – Asia campus based In Singapore. In 1957, INSEAD became the first European business school to offer an MBA program. With its long and trusted pedigree, INSEAD is one of the leading business schools in the world today and many of its students are being headhunted for jobs worldwide. Some of them eventually land managerial positions at financial giants like Barclays Group, Deutsche Bank and Lehman Brothers. Currently, INSEAD – Asia offers a one year full time MBA program where individuals will be exposed to several methodologies of studies that will provide them the extra edge when compared against other MBA graduates in other programs. With a campus in Singapore since 2000, INSEAD definitely offers a top notch and quality MBA program.

Having won plenty of accolades and keeping its momentum strong with yearly improvements, the NUS MBA program is definitely a viable alternative. Having won awards and being rated highly like being rated the Number One Singapore School in Asia by an International Recruiter Survey, being awarded one of the top ten Business Schools in Asia by Times of India and jumping to 35th spot in Financial Times’ Global MBA Rankings Survey (3rd in Asia after INSEAD and Melbourne Business), NUS MBA definitely offers potential students the quality and standard of a postgraduate MBA program. NUS MBA offers a one year full time or a part time MBA with the full time promising a completion period within a 12 month accelerated program or a 17 month extended program with internships and overseas exchange.

The Nanyang MBA held by the Nanyang Business School at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) offers an equally attractive program with a long string of alumni that has taken the business world by storm. With its own impressive accolades to boot such as being ranked the Top 25 MBA Program in the world by Financial Times in 2009 and The World Top 100 MBA programs by the Economist Intelligence Unit, the Nanyang MBA can indeed hold its high ground and compete for the top students against the likes of INSEAD and NUS MBA. Offering a global perspective with as Asian focus, Nanyang MBA promises to mould individuals and turn them into leaders that can take on leadership positions anywhere in the world. Nanyang MBA offers both full-time and part time MBA programs that promise to focus on deeper issues and supply its student with an impressive breadth of knowledge.

With Singapore quickly becoming a global economic hub, it is probably better for local students to stay within Singapore and complete their studies here instead of completing it somewhere else in the world. The three MBA programs offered above and indeed the definite best being offered in this country and it is shown that their global rankings and definitely better than most MBA programs being offered elsewhere worldwide. For somebody who wants to work in Singapore, being in a local MBA program provides the best recruitment prospects once they complete their Singapore-based MBA.
