Language of Instruction
The NUS MBA offers students deep Asian insights while giving them a global perspective. Otago Master of Business Administration students can take MBA modules at National University of Singapore on exchange.
Academic Year: August - May
Semester 1: August-December
Semester 2: January - May
Course Load and Minimum Unit Requirements
The undergraduate and graduate curricula are based on a modular system. Under this system, workloads are expressed in terms of Modular Credits (MCs), and academic performance is measured by grade points on a 5-point scale. Students can progress at their own pace and choose from a wide range of modules offered by different Faculties/Schools. The modular system offers students the possibility of accelerating their courses of study by taking more modules per semester (i.e., above the average of 20 MCs per semester), subject to the approval of their home Faculty.

The City of Singapore
Singapore is one of Asia’s most advanced and cosmopolitan cities, with a standard of living comparable to North America and Western Europe. In terms of quality of life, it is tops in Asia and No. 32 in the world, according to the annual Mercer Human Resource Consulting survey in 2008. Survey criteria included political, social, economic and environmental factors, as well as personal safety, health, education, transport and other public services. According to United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) index, Singapore is the 23rd most desirable country to live in worldwide. Crime rates are low, with Singapore ranked the safest city in the Asia-Pacific by Mercer (2008).
Despite its small size, there are many things to see, do and experience in Singapore.
From Singapore, most regional destinations are only a couple hours’ flight away. Travelling to many of the beautiful islands of Malaysia makes the perfect weekend trip!
Many adventurous students travel to the ruins of Angkor Wat, to see the beauty of Ha Long Bay and to party under the full moon at Koh Phangan in Thailand.
