Major in Mgmt (Tech) for Non-BBA Students

The Business School offers the Major in Management (Technology) Programme ("Mgt(Tec) Major"), a Double (Second) Major as part of NUS' Special Undergraduate Programmes, for students from all other faculties and schools. This Major is offered in conjunction with the Faculty of Engineering, the Faculty of Science, the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, and the School of Design and Environment.

Students may be admitted to the programme in one of the following ways:

  • Application by invited students just after they had been offered admissions to NUS, OR
  • Application by students during their first or second year of study. 


NUS non-Business students will be invited, through their home faculty, to apply for admissions into the Major in Management (Technology) Programme in March/October periods.

To apply, students must fulfill the following criteria:  

  • completed at least one semester of study;
  • apply no later than the 3rd semester of their study.
  • have a CAP score of at least 3.5;
  • If they apply in the 2nd semester of their study, they must have completed at least two (2) Management Major (Technology) modules*
  • If they apply in the 3rd semester of their study, they must have completed at least four (4) Management Major (Technology) modules*

* The Management Major (Technology) module(s)

  • cannot be S/U module(s)
  • exclude(s) Substituting module(s) or module(s) map back from SEP
  • include(s) the Management Major (Technology) module(s) that they are enrolled in at the time of application

 (* Students who have withdrawn from the Double (Second) Major in Management (Technology) will not be re-admitted.

** The S/U option is not applicable to modules taken to meet the Major program requirements.)

Once admitted to the Mgt(Tec) Major, students do not need to maintain any minimum academic performance threshold in order to remain in the programme. Some Business modules have mathematics requirement as for BBA admissions.

The Minor in Management of Technology (MOT) Programme, which is jointly offered by the NUS Business School and the Faculty of Engineering, is a subset of the Mgt(Tec) Major. Students in the MOT Minor Programme may upgrade to the Mgt(Tec) Major (subject to meeting the admission criteria for the programme). Conversely, Mgt(Tec) Major students may "downgrade" to the MOT Minor. An alternative to the Mgt(Tec) Major would be the Major in Management.

Students in the Mgt(Tec) Major will bid online for all Business modules via CORS. Bidding for non-Business modules are administered by the corresponding faculties or school. Students should attend all classes (including any tutorials) for any Business module they are appealing to get into, else they might not finally get into a class even though the appeal is initially successful. Rules for appealing to get into non-Business modules are administered by the corresponding faculties or school.

It is very necessary for Major students to strategise well in order to be able to complete the Major. It is expected not to be uncommon for Mgt(Tec) 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 (Technology) programme, students are to complete 12 Business modules worth 48 modular credits in total. 

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 (Tec) programme modules to double count towards other programmes.

(Engineering Students reading this Major should take MNO1001 Management & Organization in place of HR2002 Understanding Human Relations in the New Economy).
