Admissions Process

best MBA program in Asia 

Candidates must meet our Admissions Requirements in order to join the Nanyang MBA. Only completed applications will be assessed. An application is only considered complete if we have received all necessary details, supporting documents and the application fee.​​​

  1. Create a profile on our Online Application System
    Apply for the programme via our online application system. You may also login to the system to check your application status after you have submitted your application. Your application should demonstrate strong intellectual capability, solid career progression, professional achievements and leadership qualities/potential. Essays and Letters of Recommendation are a mandatory component of the applicant. The essays articulate your thoughts clearly, provide relevant examples and adhere to the word limit. Letters of Recommendation should be preferably a person who is in a position to provide an honest critique of your work performance.

    No separate application for scholarships is required – simply tick on the box relating to the scholarship you are applying for in the online application form and complete the essay for scholarship consideration
  2. upload supporting documents
    Fill in the application form and upload the following supporting documents:

    CV or Resume
    Concise document no more than 2 pages, briefly describing your responsibilities and accomplishments

    Educational Documents
    Degree scroll/certificate(s) and academic transcripts of each university attended (official English translation is required for non-English certificates and transcripts)

    GMAT or GRE score report
    You may upload your unofficial or test taker copy if you do not have your official test scores on hand. Please arrange to have your official test scores sent to Nanyang Business School. Our GMAT institution code is V24-ZV-13 and our GRE DI code is 3802.

    Applicants who have yet to take the GMAT and TOEFL/IELTS may still proceed to submit their application and indicate the test dates in the online application form.

    TOEFL or IELTS score report
    Applicants are required to take the TOEFL or IELTS if English was not the medium of instruction used at the tertiary level. A good proficiency in English is a must.

    Documentary Proof of Nationality
    NRIC, Passport, Citizenship Certificate. Singapore Permanent Residents are also required to submit your re-entry permit. For foreign applicants working or living in Singapore, please submit documentary evidence of Immigration Pass (e.g. Employment Pass or Dependant’s Pass) issued by the Singapore Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA)

  3. Submit application and application fee
    Upon submitting the online application, please proceed to pay the application fee via Visa/Mastercard or cheque/bank draft payable to “Nanyang Technological University” (indicate your full name and address on the reverse side of the cheque/bank draft). For international applicants, please pay via bank draft with clearing bank in Singapore.
  4. Assessment & Interview Shortlist
    After assessment of your application is completed, we will shortlist candidates for the interview stage. Candidates will be shortlisted for the interview after a complete assessment of their application and supporting documents. Shortlisted candidates will be notified via email.

    The announcement of shortlisted candidates for interview will be made after the deadline of the application round and is not a one-time exercise – subsequent announcement will also be made as warranted. In some instances, your interview may occur even during the round itself.
  5. Interview Evaluation & Final Selection
    Candidates who have completed the interview will move to the final selection stage whereby the Admissions Committee will meet for deliberation and candidates for admission will be selected. Announcement of offered candidates will be made via an e-mail notification from the admissions office.

    Please note that only successful candidates will be notified. Applicants are advised to check the online application system for their application status. We are unable to confirm or release information via phone.
  6. Acceptance of Offer
    Should you receive an admission offer via email, you are required to complete the acceptance of the offer within the stipulated time or the offer will lapse automatically. The acceptance must be accompanied by a non-refundable enrolment fee of S$10,000 (inclusive of GST) which is deductible from the total tuition fees payable.

  7. Application Status
    The status of your application to Nanyang MBA will be updated regularly after the end of each application period.

    You can view your application status anytime via the online application system. Applications will be processed in batches and not on a rolling basis. The duration of the entire application process (from the time you submit your application till the final selection) varies depending on the volume of applications received, which round you applied and whether your application is deemed complete. You will be notified if there are supporting documents missing from your application. Incomplete applications will not be processed.

    Due to the large volume of applications received, e-mail responses may be delayed and we seek your patience to wait for the results and/or check your application status online. For confidentiality purposes, we regret that we will not be able to provide feedback on rejected applications.
  8. Important Notice
    Please note that the University has not arranged for any external private agencies to undertake graduate student recruitment on its behalf. Candidates interested in enrolling into NTU graduate programmes are advised to apply directly to the University; there are no added merits for admission applications submitted by candidates who apply through agents. The University reserves the right to reject such applications without giving reasons.
