2012 SINGAPORE Scholarships | PhD Scholarships | MBA Scholarships

National University of Singapore (NUS) will provide international scholarships to international students from developed and developing countries to pursue higher education in Singapore. The NUS PhD-MBA aims to attract and train talented science and engineering students who have the potential to create and lead technology companies. The 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 comnpanies provide practical technology business training, and form the third pillar.

Singapore Scholarship (2011-2012 and 2012-2013):

- 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

Singapore, Asia and the NUS PhD-MBA Program

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). They can choose among a wide variety of courses across the NUS campus with very few restrictions. In the 2nd year, students complete a first internship lasting around 3 months, for example in the summer between year 1 and year 2. Students also finish course work and sit their PhD Qualifying Examination, as well as selecting two advisers, one of whom should be from NGS, the other may be in any NUS department or school, or even external to NUS. Students then start their MBA in the 1st semster of the 3rd year of study. They do this as full time students in the NUS Business School, along with all other full-time MBA students. From the 2nd semster of the 3rd year onward, students continue their PhD research full-time and finish course work related to their MBA in part time mode. The course load for the MBA is somewhat reduced for PhD-MBA students, enabling them to finish the degree requirements in good time. A second internship is taken at any time during years 3 to 5. Upon successful defense of a thesis and the fullfillment of the requirements for the MBA, students are conferred a PhD and an MBA degree. Students may graduate with only a PhD, but not with only an MBA.

Who Should Apply

A keen, open and independent mind, common sense, appreciation for the importance of science, technology and business, the ability to act and get things done alone and in a team are hallmarks of students suitable for the NUS PhD-MBA. Valuing the wide range of backgrounds of potential students, factors that the recruitment committee will weigh when making decisions on admissions into the NUS PhD-MBA are: academic records, standardized test scores, research experience, startup and industry experience, completed internships, interest in and involvement in entrepreneurship and business, as well as good English.
