Wheww pretty interesting I must say, just a week or 2 back NTU was on the top 25 business school list isnt it. I must say BBAs seemed to be way less documented on as compared to MBAs. Something that may explain the crazy surge and hence tough cut-off scores in NTU business school from Pre-U students.

BBAs are overrated. They have been traditionally the source of labour supply for the financial sector. With banking on the decline, all the newly minted BBA grads will face humongous difficulties looking for the jobs they are trained to do, more so than their counterparts in arts, science, engineering and of course accountancy, law and medicine. That said, I believe talented executives with good MBAs and years of relevant experience in their fields will always be in demand.

US business schools are overrated. You just need to take a look at the source of the current worldwide economic crisis to see that the US education system has not delivered the ethical and social responsibility that it should have.

Separately, studying MBA outside of the US seems to become more popular. Most of the foreign schools, eg NUS, NTU, also partner with US schools to provide what I think may be the best compromise of two worlds -- an Asian focus and a US curriculum. It's about time that some other country takes the lead in new MBA curriculum. What about China? Or India?

Both these countries have good schools that seem to accept only the top of the top of their undergraduates applicants. Names such as Peking, Tsinghua, IIM will be famous one day if they are not already.

I do agree perhaps they are. But BBAs definitely general compared to other degrees, too general to be of little employment value.

anybody willing to venture a guess on how long ntu mba will last at or even better the 24th position? I think it's a fluke and next year things will revert back to the norm.

Can we please move on with an article on the loss made by Temasek? I can't wait for the flaming and bashing that awaits her.

Who would dare to write something like that? We all know what happened to FEER and WSJ

Don't really understand why some people are so fascinated with studying MBA?

Have they calculated the Return on Investment?

And if one has no people skills, MBA is utterly useless.
