Nanyang vs. NUS vs. Insead -- which is the best MBA in Singapore?

I know that Insead is ranked the highest in the Financial Times. It's a great school, but from what I understand it's really only for people who want to go into the financial or consulting firms.

I'm more interested in a career in either operations and supply chain, preferably in the manufacturing industry. So would Naynang be better, considering it's listed here?

There's also NUS, which seems like a well rounded school.

I'm torn and can't decide!

Insead has much better post-MBA salaries then the other two, but that may be due to so many grads going into financial services and management consulting.

Don't forget about SMU! It could work, depending on your career goals. It offers a lot of electives in operations/supply chain.

Thanks!

I looked at Linkedin and it looks like Nanyang and NUS have more alumni working in sectors like supply chain and logistics than Insead. Although I can't see operations professionals because searching by function is a paid feature... SMU has fewer people working in supply chain/logistics. I think I'll put my efforts into Nanyang and NUS, and see what pans out. Thanks for the suggestions.

In terms of the most recent placement data from SMU, Nanyang, and NUS, they all placed close to the same percentage into operations roles. It's 10 percent at Nanyang and NUS and 13 percent at SMU.

That's good to know. I've decided to apply for all three schools and see what happens. I'd like to get into NUS and Nanyang, since those are ranked, but SMU will be my back up plan.

Even I am interested in knowing which is the best MBA program in Singapore. I do not think I can afford INSEAD but NUS/Nanyang/SMU are all options... Please advise me...

Well, considering NUS is listed here:

and here

INSEAD is clearly the best school. Look:

INSEAD: ranked 4
NUS: ranked 31
Nanyang: ranked 40

Businessweek Full-Time MBA Ranking 2014:
INSEAD: ranked 5
NUS: ranked 22
Nanyang: NOT RANKED

Economist Full-Time MBA 2014:
INSEAD: ranked 18

Insead is a great school but I see it as a school with one main post-career focus area: consulting. It's great if that's the track you're on but for others it isn't always the best choice.

NUS and NTU have more well-rounded placement reports, with grads going into financial services + tech (NUS), or retail + manufacturing (NTU).
