NTU leads MBA programme in Asia

NTU Singapore now ranks 38th in The Economist’s latest ranking of Master of Business Administration (MBA) programmes worldwide.

Climbing 35 spots from the year before, the Nanyang MBA offered by NTU’s Nanyang Business School (NBS) is now the top MBA programme in Asia.

Published annually, The Economist’s Full-time MBA Rankings rank MBA programmes according to four key indicators – opening new career opportunities; personal development and educational experience; salary; and the potential to network.

The Nanyang MBA's improved ranking comes on the back of strong performance in career placement, personal development and educational experience, and its graduates' salary, which jumped 16, 44 and 37 places respectively from the previous year.

Most notably, NBS is now ranked 16th worldwide in the “opening new career opportunities” indicator.

Professor Ling San, Deputy President and Provost at NTU Singapore, said: “The latest ranking is another testament to the strong global reputation of NTU’s Nanyang Business School. A key reason why we have consistently done well and attracted the best business students globally is that we offer highly relevant programmes that allow our students to have better insights into the disruptions brought about by technological advances and developments such as pandemics."

Professor Christina Soh, Dean of NTU's Nanyang Business School, said: “We are proud to deliver a transformational programme that empowers business leaders with the ability to innovate for the future, lead with impact, and transform with cultural dexterity in a rapidly evolving world.
