Melanie Oschlies, on MBA exchange from the University of St Gallen, tells us about her experience in the NUS MBA programme.
NUS MBA Experience: 7 new friends from 7 nationalities
Staying 4 months in Singapore was a great experience for me. I got to know lot of interesting people from around the world in the NUS MBA Program – and we had great fun partying, travelling and working together. When I first arrived in Singapore I was warmly welcomed by my fellow flatmates and peers. Their open attitude allowed me to find good friends soon and there was always someone willing to help with any kind of problems… ya any kind.. right from which restaurant to go to, in all price ranges, to how to make the cheapest call back home to Germany 🙂
The classes taught in the MBA program had a high academic level. The interactive teaching methods were new to me at the beginning, but in the end I took a lot out of the various discussions and group works.
My exchange semester offered an ideal mixture of working, studying, partying and travelling and I can really recommend it to everybody looking for an opportunity to spend some time studying in South-East-Asia.
