The NUS PhD-MBA programme is jointly hosted by the NUS Graduate School for Integrative Sciences and Engineering (NGS) and the NUS Business School. The programme has 3 pillars. Students develop their research skills by doing a PhD in a science or technology discipline. Concurrently students develop business acumen by working on an MBA degree. Internships in technology companies provide practical technology business training, and form the third pillar.

The NUS PhD-MBA programme

Students in the NUS programme work on a PhD in science, engineering or medicine and an MBA concurrently. Successful applicants will be offered a scholarship covering the tuition fees for both the PhD and the MBA. They will also be offered a stipend to cover living expenses, as well as allowances for books, a computer and for conferences. In the 1st year students typically do course work related to their PhD, completing 6-8 courses for 24 to 32 modular credits (MCs).

  • Concurrent PhD and MBA, taking much less time than completing both separately
  • Choice of any subject for the PhD, from the life and physical sciences to engineering and IT
  • Monthly (12 months per year) tax-free stipend of S$2,600 to S$3,200 (depending on whether or not scholar chooses to work in Singapore upon graduation)
  • PhD tuition waiver, full MBA tuition fee waiver
