Hi I am confused about when to give GMAT so that I have a good enough work ex at the the time of applying. 1) Is work ex of 2 years at the time of applying not as good as 3-4 years work ex? 2) How recent should be the GMAT score for it to be considered effectively? Please help! TIA

Hi, I have 2 big questions that is really bothering me before applyting to MBA programme at NUS. It would be really great if anyone can shed his or her lights on the same.

1) I have given GRE. MBA@NUS accepts both GRE and GMAT. Does MBA@NUS give preference to GMAT?

2) I am eying Product Management roles after MBA. How is the job market in SGP for PM roles in technical companies. And do companies hire graduates from NUS without rich expriences in PM roles.

Product Management role may not require rich experience but yes they generally ask for 2 year experience in the specific role.

NUS prefers GRE. But for this year you need to reconfirm.

Hey , first of all a big thanks for being open to help, it means a lot. Could you share your thoughts on my chances of making it to NUS MBA given my profile is as - CSE graduate from NIT, academics >90 throughout, working in an IT firm as a developer for 1.5 years. Don't have extracurriculars worth mentioning. What all is expected for an admit and how can I work for it, in what time frame ?

Hi Devya, Your academics are great for NUS MBA, however NUS MBA requires minimum 2 years of work-ex. If you have that by now (since the post is from April) we can work together on your application. Also, what's your GMAT? Best, Abhijeet

Hello friends, I had received a preliminary interview invite in the first week of March, the interview went well but I have not heard back from admissions committee since then. How much time does the adcom normally take for calling for next round of interview?
