2 Singapore president grad from there back in the day when few venture overseas for edu. Go drink AMDK water auto become AMDK.

Triple accreditation don't mean much, iirc Harvard not triple crown.

If can get into Harvard or the likes, take loan no need deep pockets or family rich. The ROI better than your cheap $30k uni.
A buddy's son go Stanford on loan, 2-4 yrs all paid off plus he making more $$. Spend $30k earn $100k or spend $200k earn $400k which better? At the end of day who in the lead?
Different classes of MBA cater to different social class of people. People who can get admitted to Harvard/Insead elite MBA program are those who have very good head start in their life. Excellent A-level grade, bachelor from top universities, excellent career experience. They are the one who are likely to join the top MNC to earn the 400k remuneration. However for those who doesn't has that, could always join a less reputable uni for MBA, probably not earning 400k but at a level that is still sufficient for a comfortable life . The key is living within your own constraint. Personally, I do not think PEI or even local MBA program can help much in my career pursuit as I lack good working experience and has lackluster qualifications... I still enrolled for one with Uni of Adelaide to make myself stay competitive. I know it wouldn't rake me good money, but I believe it can give me some idea to startup a business.

I am torn between local or PEI because Bain and Co recognise our local MBA degree for employment.

Recommend a Local and PEI?
Saw a few people on linkedin join mck after NUS MBA. But honestly not something I'd bet on...

To be honest, i dont know how strict is the admission procedures. Maybe someone could shed a light?

170k but the ROI is better than most other MBA locally.
Besides being poor can you get in easily?

I wonder if anyone in this thread, especially the prospective MBA students, existing MBA disciples and the MBA holders (be it tier 1 or tier 2 or other tiers) have gotten to read the Personal MBA.

The link is as below: https://personalmba.com/

I chanced upon the link and managed to grab a copy of the book. I haven't progressed much into the book as I find it easier to read novels or literature stuff.

Maybe also provide info on what leads you to choose this course in particular?

Thanks in advance.

If you work in Government/Public sector, they only recognize full time local Master degree. I will recommend NTU-MBA (Accountancy) because it can help you get CA Sg. For PEI, I will chose Strathclyde because it is triple accreditation (AMBA, AACSB and EQUIS)‏ & around the market rate course fee for DL MBA (manchester is only good for ranking but course fee is too much for DL MBA that are not worth for ROI).
would you recommend local uni mba over Strathclyde?

Government / public sector's HR has a list of recognized MBA. Strathclyde attained good ranking in FT but still not as good as NTU/NUS. I would strongly recommend local uni mba over Strathclyde

Pretty mixed experience.

Initial course are quite academic , electives are much better, some profs still work in industry and teach part time, these profs are usually the best

Some fellow students worry too much about grades still, these tend to be the younger ones

Management of the course is a bit messy

Workload is quite heavy, gets even heavier when your internship starts because you study at night. Little time to do non-academic stuff. But I heard now you can extend the course by 3/4 months if you want.

I studied overseas for ugrad but local uni, esp smu gives me better access to employers, better chance of a good job i guess.
