Concurrent M.Sc. (Management)

Engineering students who are interested to pursue a higher degree in Business and Management may like to consider doing a Concurrent Master of Science (Management) Programme.

The NUS Master of Science (Management), M.Sc. (Management), consisting of 20 management and leadership modules drawn from the B.B.A., M.B.A. and M.Sc. (Management) curricula, is only available as a concurrent program for eligible current NUS undergraduates.  Students may gain this additional master’s degree generally with about one extra year’s coursework study and no research requirement.

Please refer to Concurrent M.Sc. (Management) Programme website at for information on programme structure and application details.

No M.Sc. (Management) module taken in NUS can be on the satisfactory/unsatisfactory basis.

Degree Classification

The M.Sc. (Mgt) degree will be awarded to students who have

  • Earned at least a Second Class Lower division in the B.Eng.(Hons.) Programme and;
  • Maintained a CAP of 3.0 in the modules counting towards the M.Sc. (Mgt) requirement.

Students who fulfill the DKR requirement of M.Sc. (Mgt) Programme will be awarded a Minor in Business.


Mid-stream engineering students who are already enrolled in the Minor or Major in Management can apply for the Concurrent Master of Science (Management). School of Business will inform these students when the application is open.


Students can choose to leave the Concurrent Programme, or can be required to leave if they fail to meet requirements. For example, students who do not maintain a CAP of 3.5 in modules contributing to the B.Eng. (Hons) degree for any two consecutive semesters will be required to leave the Concurrent Degree Programme.

Students who choose to leave the Concurrent Programme are permitted to work for the B.Eng. (Hons) degree in NUS Engineering.  Common modules completed in the Concurrent Programme may be counted towards the fulfillment of the B.Eng. (Hons) degree requirements.
