I'll pass it on, although i doubt they will pay expat rates.. My wife took less less than 1/3rd of what your asking and she's been vice president of a Asia Pacific in Taiwan, and was also assistant vp of Sembcorp Taiwan logistics, she's also an MBA in maketing & sales from Oregon, although her income is based on results, which means you got to bring in the cash, if you want paying, no free riders in Singapore, just work you to death for every penny.

So I don't hold much hope at all, for your chances, unless you fall lucky with a company, that want's to send you here. MBA's are two a penny in Singapore has you must well know. I'll see what they say and get back to you.

We arrived here on a local package several years ago, and the wife basically had to turn the company around from a loss making company. which meant two years of hard work for peanuts, although she did manage to win in the end.
