Singapore's fast-growing economy and modern lifestyle has contributed to a high cost of living. Cost of education is also among the highest in Asia. However, it is still an inexpensive option when compared to UK or Australia. Currently, annual tuition fees average around approximately US $11, 800.

The tuition fee for a full-time MBA program (as of year 2016) from NUS Business School (National University of Singapore) is SGD 62,000 (approximately Rs. 30 lakhs.)

Accommodation expenses in Singapore varies depending on whether you rent a room (SGD 500 - 1,000 per month i.e. Rs 25,000 - Rs. 50,000 p.m.) or an entire apartment (SGD 2,200 - 3,000 per month i.e. Rs. 1 - 1.5 lakh p.m.) These prices are for public facilities; private rooms and apartments cost almost double this amount. More about student accommodation in Singapore.
