What is the "recognisation" of this SPJCM's MBA course in Singapore ? What are the placement prospects for the candidates joining them ? How easy/difficult is it to join the INSEAD instead(pun unintended) ?

SMU's First Student Recruitment Drive at ZheJianng
Following right after Singapore's Nanyang Technological University student recruitment drive at ZheJiang, yet another Singapore university followed suit.

Yesterday, Singapore Management University (SMU) announced that it would recruit top students from ZheJiang High School. A first attempt for the SMU.

SMU management Mr Chen explained that successful students shall be awarded with Singapore Ministry of Education bursary which is 65% sponsorship of the elected course fees. In addition, these students could apply for interest-free loans from Singapore's banks. And if any student is faced with tight financial circumstances, they could make further application for subsidies from the school. And should students perform excellently, they could even apply for Lee Kar-Shing scholarship, Lee Guang Qian scholarship and/or the SMU scholarship among the others available.

One special note is that since Singapore government is sponsoring the successful China students with 65% of their course fees, it is therefore a requirement they would serve a working contract with the Singapore government for 3 years upon graduation. However the requirement would be null if the sucessful student has been awarded the Lee Kar-Shing scholarship.

I'm trying to finish college at MSU and wanted to make a couple of extra bucks. I got scammed quite a few times, but found something that actually makes me about $200 bucks a month now. I know it isn't much, but at least it is legit. You can check it out and I hope it helps you out too.
