NUS Business School was ranked the top-scoring business school in Far East Asia. This is an improvement of 2 places from last year’s ranking where we were voted third best business school in the Far East Asia region. The second and third placing goes to China Europe International Business School, China and Tsinghua University, China respectively.
The selection for Eduniversal 2009 rankings was made by a scientific committee that established a global mapping system for the criteria of universality and the international reputation of each academic institution.
Of particular importance is that the ranking was done by 308 deans worldwide. Each Dean from the universities and schools on the Eduniversal list of 1,000 best business schools vote to recommend other academic institutions. NUS Business School is one of three business schools that showed major reputation improvements among the Deans who voted. We scored 76 more deans’ references this year than in 2008.
The Eduniversal Palmes indicate the level of an academic institution's international reputation and is awarded using two criteria: the degree of internationalisation and Deans' vote. Internationalisation includes aspects such as accreditation, network of partners and participation in international academic associations
Professor Bernard Yeung, Dean and Stephen Riady Distinguished Professor of NUS Business School said, “We are pleased that NUS Business School has been voted the number one business school in Asia. This is all the more so as the selection is done by deans of business schools. We feel both humbled and honoured. Moreover, we are encouraged to work hard to be Asia’s Global Business School, imparting global knowledge with Asian insights, and providing our students with a truly unique educational experience.”
