In addition to the academic aspect, the students also embarked on crucial industry visits to prominent organizations such as Amazon Web Services, Dentsu, Burger King Neo Aeronautics, Triple A and Natixis Corporate & Investment Banking. These visits aimed to enhance their perspective on real-world business operations and improve their communication skills within the context of a diverse global business environment.
The students also had the opportunity to explore notable cultural landmarks in Singapore, including the Garden by the Bay, the Art and Science Museum, the Jurong Bird Park, Universal Studios, and more.
