In their final year, students are provided with an excellent opportunity to explore and master their business knowledge through hands-on experience by analysing a real business problem of the host company and developing an action plan during a diagnostic residential trip.

Global Business Consultancy Project

Final year students provide consultancy services to global businesses in a real business setting and learn from first-hand experience.

Overseas Summer Programmes

Students may participate in English immersion courses, which include components such as volunteer placements, homestays and cultural activities in Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the USA. Service Learning participants also provide voluntary services in less developed areas such as the Philippines, Thailand, Mongolia, Sri Lanka and Laos.

Non-JUPAS FAQ

Q. What is the non-JUPAS admission quota?
A. We expect to admit around three students through the non-JUPAS route in 2017.
Q. The non-JUPAS intake is very small, so what is the size of the programme?
A.

We expect to have around 25 students. The intakes are JUPAS and non-JUPAS, and include local and non-local students.

Q. What IB scores/GCEAL grades have students been admitted with in the past?
A. We interviewed applicants with IB scores >=30 (including bonus) or with grade A in 3 GCEAL subjects last year. We expect students who receive our offers to have IB scores of at least 33 (including bonus) or 3 subjects at grade A in GCEAL.

Another interview will be arranged in June/July for shortlisted candidates who cannot attend the interview in March or are shortlisted after the March interview. We prefer to meet applicants face to face in a group setting rather than through any digital means.

A. We do not have any IB subject requirements; however, preference may be given to students who have studied SL/HL Mathematics.
