​NTU Singapore ranks 18th globally in Financial Times’ EMBA ranking, climbing 12 places

Published on: 15-Oct-2018

Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) has placed 18th in the Financial Times’ latest ranking of Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) programmes worldwide, vaulting 12 positions.

This latest achievement by NTU’s Nanyang Business School makes the Nanyang EMBA the nation’s top programme wholly offered by a Singapore university. The programme was ranked among the global top 20 by the Financial Times from 2014 to 2016. Earlier in January this year, NBS moved up two spots to 22nd place in Financial Times’ global MBA ranking.

The Nanyang EMBA programme saw an increase in its average alumni salary to US$271,154, up from US$256,201 the previous year. Nanyang EMBA graduates have also reported a 51 per cent increase in average salary, from their pre-EMBA salary to their salary three years after graduation, up from 35 per cent in 2017.

Professor Robert Kennedy, Dean of Nanyang Business School, said, “I am pleased that the FT ranking recognises the value and quality of our EMBA programmes. We have consistently ranked well over the years and the results are a testament to the achievements of our students and staff. To ensure that the Nanyang EMBA remains relevant, we are currently revamping our curriculum to develop executives’ agility to lead in the rapidly changing and complex business environment of Industry 4.0.’’

The Nanyang EMBA programme offers strong thought leadership and its student diversity offers a rich experience for collaboration and the sharing of knowledge, ideas and experiences.

Its career progress rank – defined by changes in seniority and the size of the company EMBA alumni work in now, versus before starting the programme – went up nine places to rank at 16, top among business schools in Singapore.

Nanyang EMBA alumnus, Mr Darryl Tan, Head of Transportation & Logistics, Asia Pacific, ABN-AMRO Bank, said, “The Nanyang EMBA programme created an excellent framework for professional and self-development. The academic programme is rigorous and relevant, and the exceptional quality of the faculty kept our cohort constantly engaged and challenged. I definitely benefitted from the diversity in cultures and experiences of the class, which injected vibrancy and enriched the learning journey.”

The Nanyang Business School admits about 40 participants from 15 nationalities to its Nanyang EMBA programme each year. 

The programme is taught by an international faculty with extensive business experience in management and consulting at major global organisations.
