Singapore: Natl U. of Singapore Business School

The National University of Singapore (NUS) is one of Asia’s leading business schools. Composed of five academic departments—Business Policy, Decision Sciences, Finance and Accounting, Management and Organization and Marketing—NUS has a large international student population and a thriving exchange program. Approximately 19% of BBA undergraduates are from the Asia-Pacific region, Europe and Africa.

Singapore is a large modern city with a diverse population of over 5 million inhabitants. Located in Southeast Asia, Singapore is considered one of the world’s leading financial centers.

Singapore’s history dates back to the 11th century. As a port city, Singapore has a history of being conquered. The Portuguese destroyed the city in the 1600s, and the British took control in the early 1800s. During World War II the island was occupied by the Japanese, then control reverted back to the British, then the Malay, and, in 1965, Singapore gained independence. Singapore has a highly developed free market economy and has been applauded for its visionary development.
