What are your career goals? For a global career in consulting study at the schools where global consulting firms recruit the most for their global roles: that means in the USA.

Right now studying in the US is not an option,so that's why this question, as I would like to go towards consulting which of these two positions me better, to be an attractive candidate for the big four operating in the Asia-Pacific region as well as globally over all.

You mean the big four accounting firms? They recruit on a very national basis; you'll find it hard to find a firm that recuits on a pan-APac basis from anywhere other than INSEAD. Which countries are your focus? What kind of consulting do you want to do?

Singapore as you know is the country where many MNCs choose to locate their Asia Pacific HQ. The dynamic of a young city and its success as well as English accepted as a main language, openness, strong workforce and effective government make it the place to be.

They have no problem like China. NUS has no problem competing with any programs and MNCs in Singapore goes to NUS to recruit. The only program that rival NUS is INSEAD which I believe is in a different league altogether.

CEIBS is more fore executive education and is not the place where MNCs look for new hires.

I take that you are a young and able man with ambition and ability but little experience and pretty clueless. Then Singapore and NUS without any second thought

I guess it ultimately depends on where you'd want to find yourself. NUS would be good if you did want to be in Singapore. For mainland China, CEIBS.

For the rest of the world, CEIBS carries more weight globally, and I can guarantee that this weight will grow in the next few years. But if you want to work in the US, a degree from a top-tier American school like Columbia or Haas would be much more valuable.

In terms of your focus, consulting - your choice between NUS and CEIBS probably won't make much of a difference. Grads from the two schools are heavily recruited into finance - with other disciplines like marketing, consulting, healthcare, etc. playing secondary roles.

You are lucky to have 2 good choices.

I lived in Singapore before being transfer to Shenzhen.

NUS has a very strong alumni network and is a well fund university with lots of long history. If someone plan stay in Singapore or English speaking Asia then it is a great choice.

CEIBS is growing a lot like "ezra" says. If you plan work in China there would be lots alumni network for your career and especially if your plan to consult in China. It can open the doors.

My feeling for your case (if want to be in consulting) is that the alumni network location is the most important part about the decision.

Hope you can make the decision and good luck.

Indeed - but one thing that I would caution OP about is that unless he has fluency in Mandarin, it might be difficult to land a job in one of the large consulting firms or a top position in a large company in general.

Yes, an I'd add that the career services departments should be an important aspect as well. I'd ask career services at each of the schools for examples of the successes of grads in a similar situation - and even ask to talk to the grads directly.
