Why take a 2nd Major in Management?
Firstly, a 2nd Major in Management can be augmented to the double degree programme or Master of Science (Management) Programme, MSc(Mgt). The MSc(Mgt) can be further augmented to the Master in International Management (MIM) in Europe under scholarship. Please note that it is subjected to meeting the admission criteria of these programmes.
It can also be 'downgraded' to a Minor in Management or a Minor in Technopreneurship. An alternative would be the Major in Management (Technology).
Students are admitted to the programme through application by invited students just after they have been offered admissions to NUS (For BOTH major/minor in management).
Students in the Mgt Major will bid online for Business modules via CORS. Students should attend all classes (including any tutorials) for modules they are appealing to get into, otherwise they might not get into a class even though the appeal is eventually successful.
It is very necessary for Major students to strategise well in order to be able to complete the Major. It is not uncommon for Management Major students to run out of time before they graduate, and thus have to abandon the Major.
Due to severe capacity constraints, the Business School's Career Services Office would not be able to extend assistance to students in any Minor or Major programmes offered by the School.
To fulfill the requirements of the Major in Management programme, students are to complete 12 Business modules worth 48 modular credits in total. Details are shown in the table below.
Out of the 48 MCs, up to 16 MCs may be approved substituting modules taken while on student exchange programme (on the condition that the modules taken are graded modules at partner universities). In addition, another 8 MCs may be substituting modules offered by other faculties in NUS (see Substituting modules).
Students may use up to a maximum of 8 MCs of their management major programme modules to double count towards other programmes / requirements.
Other than the above, all other modules read must be graded, unless taken in the 1st semester at the university. (Applicable for BOTH major and minor.)
|LEVEL OF MODULES||NUMBER OF MODULES||NUMBER OF MCs|
|Level 1000||Any 4 of the following Level 1000 modules:
|Level 2000||Any 4 of the following Level 2000 modules:
|Level 3000 or above||Four Level 3000/4000 modules as follows:
(a) At least one from any 2 different areas below:
Minor requirements are two (2) modules each from the said levels above, making it a total of six (6) modules [twenty-four (24) MCs]. For Level-3000 modules, only those from subset (a) in the table above is applicable.
To ensure a systematic acquisition of knowledge as well as to maximize the learning experience, pre-requisites for higher level modules must be adhered to. Please check for the most updated module descriptions at http://www.nus.edu.sg/nusbulletin/search-modules/.
(Students who have withdrawn from the Double (Second) Major in Management (Technology) will not be re-admitted. )
