A double degree may require much more academic effort but to these two NTU students, developing oneself, meeting new people, and spending time in school fruitfully are just as important.

One would be surprised to learn that Jin Wei Krishnan, a Nanyang Scholarship recipient at NTU once envisioned a different educational path.
The 21-year-old initially wanted to study in an overseas university but on the advice of his family, Jin Wei decided that studying in a local institute would be more beneficial instead.
“When I was deciding on a university course after receiving my ‘A’ level results, it seemed natural for me to choose business and accountancy because both my parents are working in the industry,” says the ex-Innova Junior College student.
With all three universities in Singapore offering business degrees it was a tough decision to make, but after doing some research Jin Wei was ultimately won over by the Nanyang Business School (NBS) of NTU.
