The National University of Singapore Business School has updated and shortened its MBA programme.
The MBA can now be taken in 12 months, although students can also take the programme over 17 months.
Core components of the programme have also been revamped, with the introduction of modules in communications, negotiation, leadership and Asia Pacific Business among others.
“The revised NUS MBA curriculum is much more intense, experiential, industry-orientated, group-based, flexible and accelerated,” says Kulwant Singh, vice-dean for graduate studies at the school.
The curriculum has also been broadened to include an additional three specialisations - finance, marketing and strategy and organisation - to run alongside the current specialisations of real estate and healthcare management.
The changes to the programme have been made following a review of other MBA programmes as well as studying employer and graduate surveys, as well as a survey of past and present MBA students.
