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.
Here are reasons why an education in Business at TMC Academy ticks all the boxes
Be Industry-ready with Industry-relevant Curriculum
Our business course curriculum is formulated with the advice of our Industry Advisory Board, formed by external industry players with vast field experience, who provided valuable update based on the current industry trends.

Be Engaged in Networking Opportunities
TMC Academy’s strong links with industry associations and business organisations provide for expansive access to external industry events and networking opportunities with industry players. As we all know, networking is key in the world of business! Read about our students experience here and here.
Be Prepared for the International Business Stage
Be set for the international business stage with our popular courses, Higher Diploma in Business (International Business Specialisation) and Bachelor of Arts (Honours) Marketing Management (Top-Up). The best part is having classmates from all around the world, which provides students an international environment to study in and to gain an international perspective while interacting with a global pool of classmates.
Be Effective in Securing that Degree!
TMC Academy’s Higher Diploma is equivalent to the first two years of a UK Bachelor’s Degree with Honours, or to claim advanced standing when entering Australian or other degrees. Our international university partners include University of Northampton, UK and Griffith University, Australia.
Don’t take our word for it, hear it from our Business students
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.
I like the warm environment in campus and the part time class schedule complements my commitments as a working mom. I also enjoy the multi-culture environment. I hope to realize my dream of being a boss one day, and meanwhile, the course prepares me for the real world, to find a good job and have the relevant knowledge in the industry. I can say that the lecturers and course modules are one of the best I’ve ever encountered. Everything is up to my expectations from start to finish.
