Of course there is still plenty of room for improvement. Among other things - in the way they select and admit their EMBA program applicants.

NUS makes FT's top 30 EMBA list again
NUS Business School has made the Financial Times top 30 ranking of executive MBA programs for a second straight year.
NUS's Asia-Pacific Executive MBA in English and Chinese came 29th in the newspaper's 2006 ranking of the Top 85 EMBA programs, rising one place from 30th last year. The school's APEX program is also the only Asian program to make the FT's Top 85 list, NUS said.
The school performed extremely well in two of the sub-categories, emerging in the top five for 'International Attendees' and 'Top Salaries in IT/Telecommunications'.
Its 2003 EMBA cohort of 73 students, made up of nine nationalities, visited China, India, Taiwan and Vietnam in six intensive two-week segments to complete the 17-month course, and enjoyed a 47 per cent increase in post-graduation salary, NUS said.
There are 16 criteria in FT's survey, which considers 104 business schools around the world. These include: salary today, percentage of salary increase, career progress, work experience, aims achieved, female faculty, students and board, international faculty, students and board, international course experience, languages, and education and research rankings of faculty.
The ranking is based on data collected from two sets of questionnaires - one completed by the business schools and the other by alumni who graduated in 2003 and have been in the work force for three years.
NUS was the only business school from Singapore ranked by FT.
