Any NUS academic department outside the Business School (MBA Programmes) wishing to recommend its graduate students to take a MBA module is expected to pay the standard external-student rate, which is one-seventeenth of the prevailing MBA tuition fee.
The MBA Office must finally approve the application, while taking into account the backgrounds of the proposed students as well as the availability of any vacancy in the MBA module.
All such students taking a MBA module are expected to complete all module requirements, and will be assigned official NUS letter grades based on their performance in the module.
IMPORTANT: Please note that students who wish to enroll in the MBA modules MUST satisfy programme and module pre-requisites, to maintain the MBA standard.
