Each year, the Nanyang MBA attracts people from around the world to study in Singapore, the gateway to Asia. Since 1991, students from over 56 countries across 5 continents have joined the programme. Of these, around 80 – 85% are international participants that comprise the MBA cohort – typically coming from over 20 countries.

There are three opportunities to apply to the Nanyang MBA and the admissions team adheres to a stringent selection process to continually improve the quality of MBA participants admitted into the programme. The Admissions Committee (ADCom) is committed to forming a cohort of diverse group of motivated, talented and high caliber participants, coming from a wide variety of academic, professional backgrounds and life experiences. Diversity is the cornerstone of the Nanyang MBA learning experience; the multiple perspectives offered by each individual coming from various industry sectors, and functions, will contribute to globally relevant perspectives while enriching the overall experience.
