Hi there, Singapore is really the place to study and work right now. It has one of the highest employments rates and strongest economies in the world at the moment. It's also quite reputable in the finance sector.

NUS Business School and Nanyang Business School are also quite popular for the MBA.

This site also has an interesting article about the rising industry in Singapore:

Also, don't forget about INSEAD's Singapore campus - I'd rank that school up there with NUS, in terms of academics and overall repuation.

Hello !!

First of all thanks to both of you for your replies.
Can you tell me after looking at my profile if do have any chance in the top Business schools in Singapore viz NUS, NTU, SMU and Insead also ?

My profile somewhat looks like this.

1)2 years of work experience as of now in Doha,Qatar in a construction company
2) Bachelor in Technology from India with 7.04 out 10
3) lots of part time activities during undergrads such as working as Sales Executive,few certification courses from NSE India in Finance modelling, Risk Management etc doing lot of social works, participated in charity drives, online teaching (am not sure if this will actually help or not), loads of academic projects during undergrad.

My main concern is my low GPA in undergrad. Now can you tell me what are my chances in those schools and what sort of GMAT score is required by this schools. I will be appearing for GMAT sometime on September.

hi Pritam,

I have done a lot of research on b-schools in singapore. Let me telll you that although NUS and INSEAD are undoubtedly the best programmes, SMU is the most under-rated programme. You'll be amazed by the kind of involvement SMU has with the local business community. If you wish to pursue a career in sg, my advice will be to go either with NUS or SMU.

Great school, but he only has three years of work experience - he would need more like five to be competitive at NUS. (or maybe a great GMAT score, like 700+ to offset this.)
