It's a proper university, and it looks like they take the MBA seriously. However, I wasn't able to find any evidence of accreditation by any of the relevant boards. Accreditation is perhaps the single most important thing an MBA needs to be taken seriously, and the first thing to look for when trying to work out whether an individual programme is any good. Without it, the degree probably won't be recognised in the UK and Europe, where there are a huge number of graduates from well recognised and respected MBA programmes. There will always be jobs for MBA graduates in the UK, but with an MBA from JCU most likely not the kind you are thinking of.

This is a case in point of "you pay for what you get." With a few exceptions, doing an MBA from a business that's not internationally accredited will not be a good investment, and you won't get the same kind of career and visa support as you would from a well-known, accredited school.

And with all the great accredited MBA programs in Singapore - Nanyang, SMU, NUS, and even INSEAD - there's no reason to do an unaccredited program.
