As for the rest like NUS/NTU, I wouldn't bother no matter how cheap their courses are.
Rubbish. Insead has a full fledged campus in Singapore. Chicago in Singapore is half baked no one actually goes there to do a real MBA

Insead is for jobless white collars to switch into banking and finance. Chicago is for the elites to hobnob with one another. Different objectives.

Default Technopreneurship diploma

You may also want to consider getting Lithan's Hall diploma in technopreneurship instead of an MBA : Wanted: Entrepreneurial Talents

It couples 12 months work experience at a startup with Entrepreneurship courses

For entry to better B-schools in Singapore, be sure to stand out and sell yourself well. Remember that these schools are also graded on social diversity. If your profile is very common, then you'll need exceptional GMAT score.

e.g., Indian national, IT degree, IT working experience (regardless how long). This profile is a dime and dozen. Then be prepared with GMAT scores in the high 700s.

Alternatively if you're Singaporean, have decent intelligence (i.e., know the difference between MBA and MBS), can converse interestingly, then you can still pull through with lower GMAT (perhaps in the 600s or even high 500s).

BUT.... you still must have key differentiator. e.g., you write well, you run an interesting business, you are a community leader, you are a defender of human rights, etc. all these help. A glowing referee letter will also be very useful.
This is funny...the third paragraph implies that Singaporeans with decent intelligence are rare

thunderbird? really? I know i heard a few good people come out from there, but NUS, NTU or SMU does sound better university names after an acrobatic air squadron

GMAT isn't an intelligence test, and Singaporeans don't really game the GMAT like Indians and Chinese. I thought mine was pretty good (taken 20 yrs ago) until I interviewed some Chinese who couldn't speak half decent english ace the GMAT. (at least that is what they say on their CVs - a 800 score.)

Many felt that having MBA or PHD is competitive edge but in actual fact, it is just another paper to impress other which can be pretty redundant to HR and the companies. In today's context, it is your circles of friends and network that can bridge you to career heights which is also the main agenda for EMBA such as those offered by NTU & NUS. It's about network, network and network. Cheers
