Overview

The Master of Management programme (MMGT) aims to prepare business executives with the skills and knowledge to contribute to the effective management of organisations. The programme equips learners with 21st century skills and knowledge such as problem-solving, critical thinking, digital literacy, communication skills, as well as leadership capabilities, while ensuring that the need for sustainability, social responsibility and ethical practices are met.

The curriculum builds on the core foundation of business management. By embracing complementarities and knowledge exchange with other emerging disciplines and fields, students can gain a deeper perspective of the best practices in a specialisation of their choice, depending on their career lifecycle and evolution.

Unique Features of the Programme

  • The programme offers an immersive learning experience where students can explore global best practices and apply practical solutions to business and management challenges at their workplace.
  • The variety of specialisations afford maximum flexibility in course selection according to the student's individual preferences and interests.
  • The programme is stackable and thus in line with the national emphasis on stackable credentials that facilitate lifelong learning. Students may graduate with a graduate certificate, graduate diploma or master's degree in management.
  • The teaching and learning strategy of using real-world case studies and guest speakers help to inject more relevant and updated business and management knowledge in classes.

Possible Career Pathway

The programme supplements students' undergraduate area of expertise with business management knowledge and skills. The pursuit of a specialisation in an emerging discipline will dramatically increase students' employment prospects in their chosen field and help them position themselves in an increasingly ambiguous and uncertain business environment.

Programme Structure

To graduate with the Graduate Diploma in Management, students are required to complete 30 credit units (cu) consisting of twelve management courses (2.5 cu each), with the option to replace up to 10 cu with Graduate Unrestricted Electives and/or MOOC Electives.

To graduate with the Master of Management, students are required to complete 60 cu of courses. There are two tracks in the Master of Management, namely the Management and Specialisation tracks. The curriculum of the Management track comprises of management courses (30 cu), a management consulting project (10 cu) and specialisation track courses (20 cu), which can be replaced by up to 10 cu of Graduate Unrestricted Electives and/or MOOC Electives.

Students who wish to pursue the Specialisation track will need to complete the Graduate Diploma in Management (30 cu) and another 30 cu of courses from a related specialisation.

Students have to maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of 3.0 in their coursework as part of the fulfilment of the MMGT programme. Classes are conducted in the evenings during the weekdays or during the weekends. International students will also need to attend daytime sessions and meetings on weekdays to fulfill their programme requirements.

Tuition Fees 

The full programme fee (as at September 2022) for international students is $33,897.60 (including GST).

The amount of course fees you pay in each semester depends on the number of courses you take in that semester. The course fees cover all study materials, classes, tutor supervision, assignments and examinations. They do not include fees for textbooks and other additional items specified by SUSS from time to time.

In addition. all international students are required to hold a valid Student's Pass issued by the Singapore Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) for their studies at SUSS, and will pay an annual miscellaneous fee of $380.00 (excluding GST). The miscellaneous fee consists of items such as copyright licensing fees, computer fees, student insurance, etc.

All fees are reviewed annually and may be revised. SUSS reserves the right to adjust the fees without prior notice.


Student's Pass 

All international students are required to hold a valid Student's Pass issued by the Singapore Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA). Your offer of admission to SUSS is conditional upon your successful application of your Student's Pass. Please refer to the requirements on ICA's website.

You need to apply for your Student's Pass via ICA's SOLAR system. Upon approval, you will be issued the In-Principle Approval (IPA) letter, which you can download and print from the SOLAR system.

For international students who do not require an entry visa to Singapore, you will only need to show your passport and disembarkation card to get through Singapore immigration.

For international students who require an entry visa to Singapore, the IPA letter will serve as a single-trip entry visa upon arrival in Singapore. Please show your passport, disembarkation card and the IPA letter to the Duty Officer at the Immigration Checkpoint when arriving Singapore. You will be issued a short term Social Visit Pass.

Overstaying is a punishable offence under the Immigration Act. You are to take note of the expiry dates of the IPA letter/Social Visit Pass and complete the formalities in getting the Student's Pass before the period of stay expires. It is also your responsibility to apply for an extension of the Student's Pass at least one (1) month before it expires. An international student is deemed to be residing illegally in Singapore if he/she does not have a valid Student's Pass.

According to the conditions stated by ICA, an international student must surrender the Student's Pass within 7 days of the date of cessation or termination of studies. Those who surrender at ICA (Visitor Services Centre, ICA Building Level 4) will be granted a short term visit pass to allow them to exit the country. If you intend to leave Singapore upon completion of your studies, you may surrender it with a cancellation form to the Immigration Officer at the checkpoint. For students who are overseas, you may return the Student's Pass and cancellation form to ICA by registered post to the following address:

Officer-In-Charge
Visitor Services Centre
Immigration & Checkpoints Authority
ICA Building
10 Kallang Road
#04-00

Additional Measures due to the COVID-19 Situation

Singapore has launched a COVID-19 Vaccinated Travel Framework to facilitate the re-opening of its borders. This new travel framework replaces previous SafeTravel Lanes such as the Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL).

You are advised to refer to the latest travel requirements and advisories found here, when planning your entry into Singapore.

TraceTogether

The TraceTogether programme and mobile app are developed to support Singapore's efforts to combat COVID-19 by enabling community-driven contact tracing. The app works by using Bluetooth signals to record other nearby TraceTogether devices.

Although the government is stepping down the use of TraceTogether as a COVID-19 contact tracing tool, you are still encouraged to download the app, as some venues may still require you to check-in using TraceTogether. More information on TraceTogether can be found here.

 

Accommodation

SUSS do not offer on campus residential places or hostels. Refer to the accommodation options here.
