How to apply:

  1. Minor in Management / Minor Entrepreneurship: No application is needed for non-business undergraduates who have not been admitted to the Minor programme at the point of admission to NUS. Interested students may still read the required business modules under Unrestricted Electives. Once the requirements for the Minor are fulfilled, students can then write in to the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for verification and permission to declare the Minor in their programme plan.
  2. 2nd Major in Management: Students who are not offered direct admission to the 2nd Major in Management may apply for it no later than the end of their 5th semester of study, but they need to first complete at least 4 business-coded modules (16 MCs) of the Minor in Management requirements. An e-invitation to apply will be sent through the home faculties around March/April and October/November. Please note that the programme is highly competitive and meeting the minimum application requirements does not guarantee an offer of admission.
