Singapore's Nanyang Technological University (NTU) has made it into the QS Global Master of Business Administration (MBA) Rankings top 30 list this year.
Moving up 13 places from last year, the Nanyang MBA programme offered by NTU’s Nanyang Business School climbed to 30th place. This makes it one of Asia's top four MBA programmes.
In a press statement, NTU said the Nanyang MBA is ranked highly for thought leadership (24th position) and diversity (29th) internationally. The programme’s biggest improvements are in the Return on Investment and Employability indicators, which jumped 37 places and 10 places respectively from the previous year, to 44th and 39th positions.
The Return on Investment indicator measures the average return on investment and payback period achieved by graduates, while the Employability score is based on employers’ reputation and employment rate.
“The Nanyang MBA programme has been steadily rising in the QS Global MBA rankings, despite intense competition from our international peers," said Professor Christina Soh, Dean of Nanyang Business School.
"This steady upward trajectory is a testament to our growth as a premier business school, and the hard work of all our students, staff, and partners.
Each year, Nanyang Business School admits about 80 participants from 20 nationalities to its Nanyang MBA programme. The programme is taught by a team of local and international faculty with extensive business experience and deep research expertise in innovation and management practices.
Published annually, this year’s QS Global MBA Rankings ranked 258 MBA programmes from 40 countries according to five key indicators – employability, return on investment, entrepreneurship and alumni outcomes, thought leadership, and class and faculty diversity.
