I was shocked to read in the Straits Times today that Singapore's Nanyang Technological University was found below average in teaching in the Times Higher Education world university rankings. NTU dropped a hundred places to 174th spot this year while the National University of Singapore fell only four places to 34th. You can see the rankings here.
The Economist magazine, however, rates the Nanyang Business School higher than the NUS Business School.
The Nanyang Business School is 69th and the NUS Business School 84th in this year's Economist rankings of MBA programmes. The Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad, is 85th. INSEAD, which has campuses in both France and Singapore, is 23rd.
The University of Chicago's Booth School of Business is first and Dartmouth College's Tuck School of Business is second. The University of California Berkeley's Haas School of Business is third and Harvard Business School fourth. "America rules the roost," says the Economist. See the full rankings here.
