Page 1 of 8

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.

@Cheetah_rks Thanks for your query. The school accepts GRE so you needn't worry about preference per se. Regarding your second query, Singapore (generally speaking) is great for Finance. However, if your career goals are in sync with what you have achieved, thus far, (and your test scores are good enough) you should go ahead and apply! 

All the best!

1. NUS does not differentiate between GRE or GMAT. Either is fine as long as your score is good. 2. Post MBA job market in Singapore is vibrant as it's the hub for Fortune 500 companies in Asia. Consulting and Product Management being the most sought after roles.

Hello @Hrusheekesh262 , The last we heard was that the school has received a large number of applications and is taking some time to release their decision. If you do not hear from them by the end of this month, we suggest that you send them a short email politely enquiring about the same. All the best!

 For NUS MBA Program.


Hey everyone. I need some help.

One of my recommenders link expired just before he was about to copy the answers. So I've mailed NUS at mba@nus.edu.sg on Jan 20th 2019 asking them to reactivate the link. I had earlier sent them a query about the double degree programs on Jan 11th 2019. While they did say that they take a minimum of 3 days to revert, I did not get any reply for either of my emails. I even tried calling up them up on +65 65162068 but I got no response.

Has anyone tried contacting NUS or received any mail from them in the month of January? I heard they had a holiday period till Jan 19th or something. Not sure about his though. I want to apply by Jan 31st and I've got like 8 days effectively. Can anyone help with this? Would you happen to have another means of contacting the admissions office?

Hello @chaitu2492 Calling and emailing are the only two ways you could use to get things fixed. We suggest you keep trying :-) All the best!

Yeah, looks like it. I tried going through an IVR call only to end up at the same number! Thank you.
