 Diploma in Business Studies (N45) 

  • One diploma, eight specialisation options:
  • Learn from the best through local and overseas internships

Whether you want to start your own business or be part of the marketing and financial workings of a major company, this course will equip you with a broad range of business knowledge required in management, with an emphasis on the development of problem-solving and decision-making skills. The Diploma in Business Studies (BS) offers varied specialisation areas in Marketing Communication, Psychology, Entrepreneurship, Service Management, Finance, Marketing, International Business and Human Capital Management.
Start With A Firm Foundation
You will be grounded in the core fundamentals of business management. The sound business knowledge and skills you pick up will come in handy in a variety of careers. What’s more, many local and overseas universities recognise our curriculum and offer our graduates module exemptions.

Learn From The Best
One of the trademarks of an NP education is industry training which offers you an insight into real business environments and challenges. You will get to learn from the best in the industry through local and overseas internships as well as project collaborations. Our partners include DBS, SingTel, Resorts World Sentosa, IBM, Robert Bosch, ODM Asia, Pivot Marketing and Mary Kay.

Get Real!
Looking for hands-on experience? Our array of flagship programmes will give you the chance to market actual products and services.
Under the Realistic, Experiential & Applied Learning (REAL) programme,  BS students will plan and implement marketing strategies. Students can also work with organisations in human resource projects such as planning and conducting training activities through the Thumbs UP! (Training Human Resources for Better Skills – a Unique Programme) or set up businesses and carry out projects under the Experiential Training for Entrepreneurship Development (EXTEND) programme.


With a constant demand for business graduates in various industries in Singapore and the region, BS graduates are highly sought after by employers in finance, banking, marketing, retailing, marketing communication and human resource management. What’s more, your specialisation will give you the added advantage when it comes to jobs in business development, corporate ventures, corporate investments, finance, marketing research, advertising as well as human capital management and development.

The BS diploma is recognised by all local universities and many overseas universities, with many of them granting module exemptions. In fact, our graduates enjoy at least one year’s exemption at many universities in Australia and the United Kingdom.
Professional bodies such as the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators (ICSA), the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) also grant BS graduates exemptions in professional examinations.

To be eligible for our diplomas, candidates must have the following GCE ‘O’ Level examination (or equivalent) results:

'O' Level Grade
English Language 1–6
Mathematics (Elementary/Additional) 1–6
Any three other subjects 1–6
