Our students are highly sought after by the world’s top employers for their analytical acuity and resourceful creativity. They are particularly valued for their adaptability, leadership qualities and the ability to work effectively in a team. You will develop these capabilities as you undergo our rigorous curriculum that emphasises team-based projects, presentations, business simulations, integrative case studies, company visits, real-world projects and hands-on experience with leading industry partners. These strengths may be further honed through student activities such as participating in industry and international competitions and conferences, and organising professional and social events that benefit other students.


Professional attachment for undergraduate
A Professional Attachment of 10 weeks is a requirement of all our undergraduate degree programmes. Typically completed at the end of the second year of study, these internships are carefully crafted to be relevant and enriching, allowing students to acquire first-hand practical experience and to sharpen their skills in industry. Through the attachments, they will also get to interact and network with professionals in the working environment, setting up valuable contacts that can give them an edge when they start their career. The Professional Attachment experience often serves as an excellent opportunity for employers to assess our students, prior to making a permanent job offer – often even before they graduate.
The agencies which have provided work experience for our undergraduates include non-profit organizations, statutory boards, SMEs and Multinational Companies.
