Business course in NTU

NTU business is better than NUS right?

I'm a student and planning to enter MJC. I can only take 3H2 + 1H1 in JC because I don't qualify for 4H2. If I want to take business in NTU, what subject combination should I take in JC? I plan to take H2 Bio, Chem, Math and H1 Econ. Should I take H1 Bio instead? If I take H1 Econ, will it affect my chances to University?

I will only say NTU accountancy course is more established than NUS. The accounting program at NUS is pretty new. As for business, both uni have their merits. It really depends on what are you looking for.

Your qn on Econs. Econs is not a pre-requisite to get into NTU business. However, NTU allows students who have taken Econs @ A levels to waive Econs in year 1 of the business program. The only pre-requisite to enter NTU business is a pass in H1 Maths or O levels A Maths.

The cut off point for NTU business is quite high. See the link below. It is AAB for 3 H2 and B for 1 H1. Your concern should be whether you could score well with your subject combinations. :-)

Seriously, you are wasting your time doing a business degree. Absolute waste of time.
1. What will distinguish you from an Accountancy grad in the market place?
2. Why not consider doing MBA after 3-4 years of working experience, from faculty who actually do have business experience, not some academician. Go for a hard-core specialised degree, and consider business later.

Just my two cents.

donkey years ago NTU / NTI / Nanta has only B Comm degree, then NUS' accountancy school was moved (transplanted) over to NTU wholesale......and the present accountancy from NUS is part of the business school, "restarted" later due to "demand", not an accountancy school like before
