Our Student Testimonials

I have always been interested in the world of business and choosing TP CBP has provided me with an overall academic knowledge and skills which helps me to develop a broad understanding of the different business structures such as accounting, management and analytics. This exposure allows me to decide the course I would like to further pursue in the future.

I chose Common Business Programme in TP as I felt that the course options were much wider in variety compared to other schools. I feel like I made the right decision in coming to CBP at TP as the lecturers were amazing and the opportunity to explore the courses while getting a grasp of business subjects would help everyone in their journey through the school and beyond. If I could, I would do it all over again!

When I visited Temasek Poly's Open House, I really liked the atmosphere of the school, with the students and lecturers being really friendly. The workshops and talks conducted gave me a better sense of what each diploma offers. It eased the decision-making process and allowed me to find the diploma I think would suit me the best, something I could not have done without joining CBP at TP.
