What Students/Alumni Say

Ian Ang

The BS diploma lays out the foundation you need as an entrepreneur. I honestly did not appreciate how useful the modules were until I started running Secretlab. I was able to apply the accounting, marketing, business IT and communications skills that I learned in school in a real-world business setting.

Grace Low

My 6-month internship with PwC Singapore was the highlight of my time in BA. I could apply content learnt in the classroom and interact with experienced accounting professionals. These gave me valuable insights into the profession. NP also offered numerous opportunities for global exposure. I worked on a community service project in Vietnam, attended a course trip to Batam and took part in a study mission trip to the Philippines.

Andralynn Tan

Studying BF has equipped me with strong business fundamentals to be confident in the workforce. The core modules have prepared me to think critically and solve problems during my internship at the Monetary Authority of Singapore. Thanks to prior knowledge in bank functions, I was able to adapt quickly and thrive in my role.

Russell Phua

The modules I took such as Tourism Law and Accounting & Finance gave me a strong foundation when I entered SMU. Through presentations and active participation in class, I have become a more effective communicator – this helped me to perform well for scholarship interviews and in the professional world.

Hsieh Jo Wei

NP’s strong industry connections provided me with industry exposure. I saw how there is a strong link between theory and real-world practice. Through the Industry Mentors’ Network programme, I was attached to an industry mentor who allowed me to sit in her meetings with suppliers. I was able to experience first-hand how business negotiations took place in real life, and gained a more in-depth understanding of the industry.
