NUS's double-degree EMBA programme with UCLA ranks 3rd globally: The Economist

THE National University of Singapore (NUS) Business School's double-degree programme with the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) has been ranked third globally in The Economist's inaugural Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) rankings.

The school's Asia Pacific Executive MBA, taught in both English and Mandarin, was placed at 43rd.

NUS Business School is one of only two Asian institutions, and the only Singapore university to make it into the EMBA rankings.

"We are delighted that both our Executive MBA programmes have been ranked among the best in the world. The rankings are another indication of the quality of our programmes," said Professor Bernard Yeung, Dean and Stephen Riady Distinguished Professor, NUS Business School.

The Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University near Chicago has four programmes in the top ten.

At number one is its joint programme with Schulich School of Business at York University, in Ontario, Canada.
