NUS Business School’s Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) programme has been ranked top in Asia Pacific in the first QS Global 100 EMBA Rankings by Region conducted by global higher education analysts Quacquarelli Symonds (QS).

A total of 100 programmes worldwide, including 14 from the region, were ranked according to the following indicators:

  • Reputation for thought leadership research, based on a global survey of academics in business and management
  • Reputation for employability, based on a global survey of employers who support or recruit EMBA candidates
  • Career outcomes of the EMBA, in terms of salary growth and promotions
  • Executive profile and experience of the class, in terms of years of work, management experience and proportion of C-suite executives
  • Class diversity, in terms of gender and nationalities of students

In addition, the UCLA-NUS EMBA programme was ranked second in the QS Global Joint EMBA Rankings, which ranked the top 20 programmes jointly delivered by two or more business schools across multiple locations or platforms.

“Our flagship NUS EMBA and the UCLA-NUS EMBA programmes are truly accelerating careers and opening opportunities,” said Professor Jochen Wirtz, Vice-Dean (Graduate Studies) at NUS Business School. “These rankings validate our vision to lead from Asia and develop future-ready leaders.”
