SINGAPORE: Nanyang Technological University's MBA programme has been ranked the top three among Asian universities and the best offered by a Singapore university.

The rankings come from the Economist Intelligence Unit's list of top business schools worldwide, which was just released.

Nanyang Business School made the overall list for the third year running; moving up in worldwide rankings from 83rd to 77th position.

The university says it finds it especially gratifying as significant weight is given to salaries earned by full-time MBA graduates, and European and American universities tend to do better in this respect, as Western economies have higher income levels.

Nanyang Business School also scored well when it came to student and faculty quality, student diversity and educational experience.

Frankly speaking, to someone who's aiming for a top-10 MBA program in the US, who cares?

IMHO, a MBA program is only worth its salt if it sends droves of its people into IB, MC ,VC & PE.

Sorry.

I don't really get your point. Are you saying that if someone can't go to a top-10 MBA program, they shouldn't bother to get an MBA? If that's your opinion, I wouldn't mind hearing your reasoning.

Anyhow, there must be many people who don't share your opinion because the Economist has spent the time and resources to create the rankings.

How about a feature on the externalities of an MBA education?

Also, I think what is of value in MBA or any masters programme is the curriculum and the industry connection the programme can offer to the candidate. That's the real value-add to going back to school.

Going back to school for a masters is a massive sacrifice and drain on personal finance. How well did NTU masters graduate fare in comparison to others?

mr. hardy,

My new post is on a study that measures the value added of American MBA programmes. Unfortunately, I can't say anything about Singapore programmes because I don't have the proper data.

MBA schools in Asia can compete with their counterparts in Europe if only they have more budget for facilities and more enrollees. Sadly most people in Asian countries cannot afford to go to college much more take up an MBA program.
