"Diploma in Business (BUS) provided me a multidisciplinary platform where I was able to clearly assess my areas of strength and gain complete certainty of where my passions lie before making my choices. With dual specialisation in electives, BUS students can delve deeper into their selected specialisations and be further equipped in relevant knowledge and skills. My own experience in the pioneering batch of the Entrepreneurship and International Business elective clusters allowed me to hone my critical thinking skills through solving problems and expand my creativity by applying academic theories on real-life scenarios. At the workplace, I was able to acquire essential people skills to broaden my network. As I look back and connect the dots, it is apparent that my journey with BUS has provided me the vital elements to cultivating a spirit of entrepreneurship with an international outlook and mindset - without which I would not be where I am at today."
