The Nanyang Business School MBA: What You Need To Know

Nanyang Technological University’s MBA program is applauded for its sustainable campus and also known for its many cat cafes. The MBA is housed in a 40,000 square meter building holding the title of Asia’s largest wood building, made of mass-engineered timber from renewable forests.

Nanyang Business School was the very first MBA school in Singapore – an incredibly clean city known for global finance, its world-class airport, and the Singapore Botanic Gardens – also named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. If you’re looking for a school that promotes culture and business in an incredibly welcoming city and wish to become a culturally adapted leader, Nanyang is the place to be.

The NTU full-time MBA program is flexible and can be completed in a 12-month or 18-month format, designed to fuel MBAs into future leaders equipped with the skills needed to excel in a global, digital environment. On average, the cohort’s age is 28, with 40% women with an average of 6 years working experience from over 15 nationalities.

The program hosts a total of nine core business courses, and electives from any of the tracks. Besides General Management, tracks include the new Sustainability and Innovation, Strategy and Innovation, Banking and Finance, Business Analytics, Marketing Management.

“What’s unique about being in Singapore is that we are open to students from all over the world. We are open to businesses from all over the world. We are open to trade. Doing an MBA in an environment like this is important because this is going to be a constant theme. With COVID-19, with globalization, and the pressures of social concerns, I think that is something that gives students the ability to survive, thrive, and most importantly be successful in this particular environment,” says MBA program director Goh Kim Huat.

Life at Nanyang Business School is intense yet inspiring. Student life is packed with classes, group projects, assignments, case competitions, and business club opportunities to take part in. Students often compete in various international business case competitions which adds to the overall Nanyang MBA experience.

Students have a say in their experience at Nanyang. Every year, the student cohort elects the Student Executive Committee, or Student ExCo, where the elected are responsible for ensuring a holistic experience in the MBA.

Students are encouraged to work with the dedicated graduate studies career development office that curates a suite of career workshops, covering important topics such as professional etiquette, networking, resume writing, and interview preparation.

“Our participants have proceeded to join top companies such as Amazon, Apple, BCG, Deloitte Consulting, GE, GIC, Goldman Sachs, Hilti, McKinsey & Company, Microsoft, P&G, PWC, and Shopee, to name a few,” says Associate Professor and Assistant Dean of Career Services Ivy Kwan.
