Studying Business in an International Environment

Out of 10 aspiring youths we speak to about their future career, 9 would answer, “Be my own boss.” Indeed, the BYOB (Be Your Own Boss) era is still blazing strong, as evidently seen in the Facebook profiles of youths where they list their occupations as CEOs of fantasy companies, with the hopes of transforming it to reality. With numerous inspirational stories on self-made billionaires like Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook and Jack Ma’s Alibaba, what does it truly take to be a successful entrepreneur?

Although you do not necessarily need a degree to start your own business, it is certainly an advantage to build a strong foundation in your knowledge of business before you head out to experience the industry and apply knowledge to real-life situations.

This course helped me develop my interpersonal and communication skills and I feel more confident dealing with people in the workplace. Through an internship as management trainee at TMC Academy, I’ve learnt what are my strengths and weaknesses. I’ve also learned to manage my time effectively, while juggling studies, work and student activities. The staff and lecturers are very friendly. They have a pleasant smile every day and I’m pleased to see them every morning.
