(for students who matriculated in Cohorts 2016 and before)
Second Major in Management
Students are admitted to the programme through application by invitation after they have been offered admissions to NUS (For BOTH major/minor in management).
Students in the Management Major will bid online for Business modules via CORS. Students should attend all classes (including any tutorials) for modules they are appealing to get into, otherwise they might not get into a class even though the appeal is eventually successful.
It is very necessary for Major students to strategise well in order to be able to complete the Major. It is not uncommon for Management Major students to run out of time before they graduate, and thus have to abandon the Major. The Management Major may be converted to a Minor in Management or a Minor in Technopreneurship.
Due to severe capacity constraints, the Business School's Career Services Office would not be able to extend assistance to students in any Minor or Major programmes offered by the School.
To fulfill the requirements of the Major in Management programme, students are to complete 12 Business modules worth 48 modular credits in total. Details are shown in the table below.
