National University of Singapore Ranking 2017

The National University of Singapore ranking in the GPA system is Top 50 / Tier 2.

NUS is a highly regarding institution located in a highly regarded international business nexus, which means that it is highly globalized and does deliver global career options to its graduates. It does not have full Tier 1 name perception or brand recognition (in spite of its partnership with Yale), and has been affected by occasional negative reporting.

Its web presence and impact are excellent and set the standard. It is being consider for Tier 1 update in the next update cycle of the GPA ranking.

Additional information: Institutional History

  • The National University of Singapore was formed with the merger of the University of Singapore and Nanyang University in 1980. This was done in part due to the government’s desire to pool the two institutions’ resources into a single, stronger entity, and promote English as Singapore’s only main language. The original crest of Nanyang University with three intertwined rings was incorporated into the new coat-of-arms of NUS.

    NUS began its entrepreneurial education endeavours in the 1980s, with the setting up of the Centre for Management of Innovation and Technopreneurship in 1988. In 2001, this was renamed the NUS Entrepreneurship Centre (NEC), and became a division of NUS Enterprise. NEC is currently headed by Professor Wong Poh Kam and its activities are organised into 4 areas, including a business incubator, experiential education, entrepreneurship development, and entrepreneurship research.

    Today, the National University of Singapore has 16 faculties and schools across three campus locations in Singapore – Kent Ridge, Bukit Timah and Outram – and provides a broad-based curriculum underscored by multi-disciplinary courses and cross-faculty enrichment.
