Concurrent Degree Programme


The MSc in Management programme is available to all eligible NUS undergraduate students through the Concurrent Degree Programme (CDP). NUS undergraduates may gain this master’s degree with one additional year of coursework study.

For non-business students, this programme prepares you for an additional career option in management. You will also enjoy all the rights and privileges of being an NUS Business School student, such as access to our NUS Business School Career Services.

Admitted students must then stay above the academic thresholds, and may be permitted to take the graduate modules only after passing an interview.
  • After matriculating into NUS.
