FTIn the Financial Times Global MBA Rankings for 2014 released today, the NUS MBA has climbed four places to 32nd rank, becoming the highest-ranked MBA programme by a Singaporean business school. It has ranked 10th for International Mobility, and moved up 12 places to 19th in the world for International Experience, reflecting the diversity of the programme and global exposure for our students.

The most encouraging news for our students however, was the increase in post-MBA salaries – 147% on average – over the pre-MBA salaries. It is a validation of the significant impact of the NUS MBA brand and reputation.

The business education world is full of rankings, but not all rankings are equal. The FT MBA rankings rank the world’s best full-time MBA programmes using 20 different metrics, including several measurements that attempt to rate campus diversity and the earning potential of the graduates, through a survey of global business schools and its alumni who graduated three years ago.

We are honoured to be in the company of the best business schools in the world. The FT rankings are added motivation for us to continue enhancing our curriculum”, says the Dean of the School, Professor Bernard Yeung.  “For instance, we recently introduced the compulsory Management Communication module and the Management Practicum in the NUS MBA. These courses are similar to training given to top executives in companies globally, in which participants are trained to manage difficult conversations and make sound judgement. With good management communication skills being a key foundation of influential business leaders, the aim is to develop our students into effective leaders guided by strong values”, he adds.
