Your interests and goals may span more than one area of expertise. That’s why Nanyang has joined together with Waseda Business School (WBS) to allow you to study with a dual focus on both global business and management of technology.

Combining the strength of two of the top business schools in Asia, the Nanyang-Waseda Double MBA is a 14-month programme that’s the only dual-degree MBA programme in the world starting in Singapore and ending in Tokyo. This duality leads to a rich and valuable academic experience.

The full-time programme is taught in English and successful candidates will undergo the core modules offered by Nanyang Business School across the first 2 trimesters. You’ll then join the international class at WBS during the third and final trimester, with the option to pursue additional classes whilst there.
