Hey there anon,

Current NUS student here! To be honest, i've never heard of this combination before, reallyyyy rare, man... I've heard of 1 degree + USP + NOC before though! I think even if the combination is possible, you might have to graduate later than 4 years (unless you overload). It all boils down to:

  1. What do you prioritize? Getting double degrees, going for NOC, or going for the USP route?

  2. Are you alright with extending your graduation? There're opportunity costs that come with a delayed graduation.

Best if you check with USP and NOC's side directly. But don't worry, you still have time to decide (NOC or maybe SEP?) or drop away (the DDP or USP). All the best with school! :-)

Hey anon, it is really hard unless you are willing to overload. as a usp major, you will probably already overload with a single major. for reference, everyone usually takes 20mcs (5 modules) per sem. usp single majors usually do like 6-7 modules to fulfil their usp requirements for their first 2 years in nus. most usp people do major+minor instead of double majors.

although you can double count 2 modules (8 mcs) as a econs/management double major, your management modules will take up all your UEs. if you add on NOC (be it 6/12 months), you end up overloading past the graduation requirement since NOC is usually meant to replace UEs. if you are interested in it and willing to hustle, by all means go ahead!

however, i will suggest you choose between a second major and noc instead of putting so much pressure on yourself. or perhaps take management as a minor instead? feel free to clarify anything.
