1. I would like to ask u about my chances of getting into nanyang MBA.
2. I had sent my scores to nanyang through gmat. They sent me an acknowledgement mail of recieving the scores and encouragd me to apply. A couple of weeks later i recieved another mail from nanyang saying that i fall in the category of preferred candidate and they strongly encourage me to apply. They also offered me waiver on application fee. How many students get such mails and what are the chances of conversion for preferred candidates? I am asking this question because i would have to give up my admission in another university if i take risk and apply to nanyang (because nanyang results come late and my session in that univ will start in feb)

I am in a big confusion because nanyang is my preferred institute. please help me.

Hi Sameer, How are you ? :)

BE Electronics from Avg colg- 8.02 /10 CGPA, College topper,

Work experience-2 year as a Software Testing Engineer,

Extra Curricular- Working for NGO for 1 year as a Volunteer. I am helping poor children financially for their basic needs and also teaching them the basic education.

I am keen to know about NUS 3 year part time program And i have some doubts regarding that which i have mentioned below :

(1) Can i get a good job in Singapore during my part time MBA at NUS to pay my tution fees ? How can i get a job during my part time MBA ? Do i need to find on my own or NUS will provide me a job ?
Can i work in part time MBA program in Singapore and pay my hefty tution fees which is around 7 lacs per 30 lacs around.

(2) What is the employment statistics salary for Part time MBA people at NUS ? I did not find any information regarding that. So, Is it same as the Full time MBA ?

(3) For me, as a International Indian student, Is it worth to go to NUS for Part time MBA?

Please provide me your suggestions and advise.

Thank you in advance :)

Dushyant, from the questions you've listed, it seems like you got the concept of part-time MBA wrong.

It's meant for professionals who already have a job, in the same country. Which is why the question of how many part-time MBA students got a job after the MBA is irrelevant.

Don't consider a part-time MBA as an easier alternative to a full-time MBA. You'll be disappointed.

I want to discuss about my chances of getting into NUS and also the chances on scholarships.
I understand that scholarship are very limited and for most of them Indian Nationals are not eligible. But I have constraints on financial fronts so I would like to explore all the sources.

I learned from one of friend that there's a bond system I which you can sign a tie up with the Singapore Govt. and some rebate will be provided on the tuition fees. Though, I haven't had any official source to confirm on it. In case, you people have any idea about the same do throw some light.

Thanks in advance for your reponse.
