SINGAPORE - Nanyang Technological University's (NTU's) Nanyang Business School has been ranked as Singapore's top business school again, based on the ranking of full-time MBA programmes by The Economist.
This is the 11th year that Nanyang Business School has grabbed the honours.
The school's dean, Professor Ravi Kumar, said in a press statement today: "The Economist's ranking shows that despite the intensifying competition among the world's leading business schools, NTU continues to offer one of the best MBA programmes internationally."
NTU's full-time Master in Business Administration programme was ranked 66th in the global ranking. It is fourth in Asia, behind University of Hong Kong, the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad, and Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.
The National University of Singapore (NUS) Business School was ranked 95th globally, and two places behind NTU in Asia.
NTU and NUS were the only Singapore institutions to make it into the list of 100 institutions.
The Economist's ranking is one of the most robust MBA rankings in the world, as its methodology takes in data over a three-year period, which helps to provide a more rounded picture of the school, said NTU in the statement.
NTU said that the Nanyang MBA programme typically admits 70 full-time students and 30 part-time students each year. About 15 per cent of the full-time students come from Singapore.
