I don't know who is this guy and where he get the info....but it's a good baseline nevertheless
Well the ranking was a subjective one anyway, by asking those professors to rank the universities, so I would say it's not that accurate.
1 more year in NTU after this sem's IA...haha
Edit: The ranking I refer to is the one in the papers

not every NUS business student gets to do honours.

Hi, It is true that NTU students command higher pay but not because of their paper qualification only although it is one of the inducing factor. Those that can perform are the ones that can stay in the 'higher pay' band than those that cannot perform.Originally Posted by Castlesinthesky
This is a real and cruel world. If you cannot perform, out you go. A degree can earn you the place but you cant stay for long if you s***. I believe NTU provide very good exposure and experience and not only the theory. If you are looking for a business course, i suggest you take NTU.
If you are looking at chemical engineering and electrical engineering i suggest you take NUS, they are supposed to be the best.
An institute is just a place that you learn to out-perform others in the market place, the other stuffs... are just window dressing.
The rankings published in our local papers are a joke la...
so what's new??? good things mentioned, bad things keep quiet.Originally Posted by mr_jason
in singapore, the course being good or not does not matter that much. What is more important is the Institution.
I will chose NUS anytime over NTU. why?? NTU keeps changing name, so in no time, the name of the institutio in yr degree certificate will no longer be in existence, eg Nanyang University, NTI.... and i heard they will change the name from NTU to donno what, dropping the T (=Technology). fortunately i chose NUS degree when i had a choice back in 1991/2. whew! nowadays u ask people about NTI, who knows, what more from people overseas.
I'm another one of those that graduated from NTU.
Ppl always say NUS got the best babes and hunks , SMU creates "thinking" students but to me NTU creates the most "practical" grad that is "plug and play"
(latest that I know of NTU commands the highest salary among local unis, correct me if wrong).
NTU class of 2000.

i um just was addressing the issue of what mervlam pointed out on the basis of comparison. In fact who cares, a chicken rice seller with no educational qualifications is raking in big bucks, who ever told him to choose nus or ntu for a course? he has his greatest course. Life.
c'mon guys... for gov sch, there's only NTU or NUS or even SMU.
just go do what u gotta do and then get out right?
no fuss abt tt. either one will still get u a degree that's recognised.
care to enlighten me???Originally Posted by AReality
No point, not going waste my time.Originally Posted by Yeowww
i think its the same just choose what you like is the most important things.
how many sucessful businessman really got a biz degree?
We are HDD of PC & FT are MB add to storage;
so PC never hangs with enormous storage capacity - LKY
A degree program doesnt guarantee good pay. All i'm saying is that university life teaches you to handle societal stress and pressures better later in your workin life. Your area of discipline doesnt really play a part in your workin life.
A sociology grad becoming a good banker, an engineering grad a top bond sales person, a biz grad doing well in backoffice or top pharma sales, etc.
Soon, society will be flooded with masters holders anyway which shows that the basic degree is just a steppin stone.
Having said that, i would suggest SMU depite the fact that i'm from BBA (NUS) cos i feel that an americanised system would prepare one to be more outspoken n confident which is impt in tdy's competitive environment.
my 2 cts
Never study those uni but just my personal opinion.
Go for SMU. They seems to have prepare student quite well for the future. I have friend study in SMU and she seems to be flying every year to do exchange program. I think it is a good experience.
Doesn't mean NUS or NTU no good, each have its own strength and weakness.
I think you can get more info frm the HWZ forum where there is a education forum.
