Candidates must meet our Admission Req​uirements in order to join the Nanyang MBA. Only completed applications will be assessed. An application is considered complete if we have received all supporting documents, information and application fee.


Get Started In 6 Simple Steps


Apply for the programme via our online application system. You may also login to the system to check your application status after submission.

Your application should demonstrate:

  • Strong intellectual capability
  • Solid career progression
  • Professional achievements
  • Leadership potential
  • Cultural sensitivity

The essay questions are compulsory and you should articulate your thoughts clearly, using good judgement with respect to the word limit.

No separate application for scholarships is required. Simply tick on the box relating to the scholarship you are applying for in the online application form and complete the essay for scholarship consideration.


Fill in the application form and upload the following supporting documents:

CV or Resume
Concise document highlighting your career progression to date, with details on your job responsibilities and professional accomplishments.

Educational Documents
Degree scroll/certificate(s) and academic transcripts of each university attended (official English translation is required for non-English certificates and transcripts)

Passport Photo
Coloured photo (taken within the last 3 months) in hi-resolution jpeg format.

Passport or NRIC
For all applicants, kindly upload a scanned copy of valid passport. For Singapore Citizens and SPR, the scanned copy of NRIC is also accepted.

GMAT/GMAT Focus or GRE Report
You may upload your unofficial or test taker copy, if you do not have your official test scores on hand. Please arrange to have your official test scores sent to Nanyang Business School. Our GMAT institution code is V24-ZV-13 and our GRE ID code is 3802.

Applicants who have yet to take the GMAT/GMAT Focus or GRE and TOEFL/IELTS may still proceed to submit their application and indicate the test dates in the online application form.

TOEFL or IELTS score report
Applicants are required to take the TOEFL or IELTS if English was not the medium of instruction during your undergraduate or bachelor’s degree.

Referee Reports
Applicants are required to nominate two referees in the online application form. Upon nomination, an online referee report form will be sent to them for their completion.

Professional Membership Certificates, if any


Upon submitting your application, you will be required to pay an application fee of S$100 via VISA or Mastercard. If you are unable to pay via VISA or Mastercard, please issue a cheque payable to “Nanyang Technological University” (indicate your full name and address on the reverse).


After assessment of your application is completed, we will shortlist candidates for the interview. The interview is by invitation only and you will be informed via e-mail if you have been shortlisted.

The announcement of shortlisted candidates will be made after the deadline of the application round and is not a one-time exercise – subsequent announcements will also be made as warranted.


Candidates who have completed the interview will move to the final selection stage whereby the Admissions Committee will meet for deliberation and candidates for admission are selected. Accepted candidates will be notified via an e-mail  from the Admissions Office.

Please note that only successful candidates will be notified. Applicants are advised to check the online application system for their application status. We are unable to confirm or release information via phone.


Should you receive an admission offer via email, you are required to complete the acceptance of the offer within the stipulated time or the offer will lapse automatically. The acceptance must be accompanied by a non-refundable enrolment fee of S$21,600 (inclusive of GST) which is deductible from the total tuition fees payable.

We have several MBA scholarships available to help admitted participants finance their MBA studies. You may browse through the list of scholarships below for information about eligibility and application deadlines for each scholarship before applying to them.

Scholarship results are announced at certain periods, typically not together with the admission offer, as scholarship selection involves another step or decision, especially if it involves external parties, as in the case of the APEC and ASEAN.
