About Nanyang Professional MBA

Immediate results. Lasting impact. No downtime.

The Nanyang Professional MBA (PMBA) is a first-of-its-kind programme in Asia created specifically to address the demanding schedule of full-time working professionals. Its unique part-time format enables you to obtain a world-class MBA from Nanyang Technological University without having to compromise your work and family commitments.

The Nanyang PMBA incorporates a career-friendly 18-month schedule conveniently delivered in an accessible location in Singapore. Co-facilitated by C-Level executives, the programme won’t just advance your business and management knowledge – it provides an enriching experience that will transform your personal and professional life.

Gain deep, practical, real-world insights

The theory is important but so is an application. By emphasising both understanding and use of the latest business tools, the Nanyang PMBA empowers you to boost your professional performance. Lectures are combined with case studies, applied projects and simulations to support you in developing and implementing ideas that challenge business conventions and create more value within your organisation.

In keeping with our commitment to real-world relevance, we invite C-level executives to co-facilitate selected modules, imparting their extensive business expertise across a variety of industries.

Programme Structure

Our PMBA programme adopts a holistic approach that you can apply to your specific business contexts. It comprises an integrated learning and exploration process, organised across three key areas – Business Fundamentals, Strategic Insights and Experiential Learning. This enables you to engage systematically with a range of complex issues.

  • Business Fundamentals - An in-depth focus on key business concepts to bolster your understanding of critical business functions, best practices and management tenets.
  • Strategic Insights - In this segment, learn how to develop and adapt business strategies to meet the ever-changing market conditions.
