MSc (Mgt) Programme

Concurrent Master of Science (Management) Programme for Current NUS Undergraduates

The concurrent Master of Science (Management) programme aims to help students gain a key competitive advantage in the graduate job market, by providing advanced knowledge and skills in key areas of management.  

The MSc (Mgt) programme is available to all eligible NUS undergraduate students.  Generally, business undergraduate students may gain this master's degree with 1 additional year of coursework study.

For non-business students, this programme prepares them for an additional career option in management.  They also enjoy all the rights and privileges of BIZ membership, such as access to BIZ Career Services. 

Double Master Programme: MSc (Mgt) + CEMS MIM

MSc (Mgt) students may apply for admission to the CEMS Master's in International Management (CEMS MIM) programme, thus gaining 2 master's degrees. This double-master degree programme may be completed in 1.5 years by a business undergraduate student; 2 years by a non-business undergraduate student.

CEMS is a global alliance of leading business schools, multinational companies (MNCs), and non-governmental organisations (NGOs). NUS is the only Singapore university and the first Asian university to be selected as an Academic Member of CEMS. The CEMS MIM, emphasizing interpersonal and leadership skills, has been ranked consistently by Financial Times among the top Master's in Management programmes in the world.
