The curriculum at Amity Global Business School is highly industry-oriented with emphasis on all-round personality enhancement.
It is geared towards making students ready for the corporate world even before they step into it.
On offer is a wide selection of degree programmes, including a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Northampton, United Kingdom, that equips students with the skills to make their mark in global businesses.
Ms Marta Ciach, 34, a senior lecturer who has been teaching at Amity since October 2015, says: “Our MBA programme combines the study of critical business areas and leadership skills with the extra value of additional recognition, qualifications and activities.
“The knowledge that you gain during your studies will help you in your current role and future career.”
The programme includes core modules such as management and organisational behaviour, strategic marketing, financial decision-making, international business negotiation and competitive strategy, and innovation. Work attachments will be arranged by Amity’s Corporate Resource Centre.
A good balance
Students can take advantage of the networking opportunities that the school provides.
Ms Ciach says: “Not only will you be working closely with other ambitious professionals and graduates, but you will also join a community of influential tutors, business professionals and MBA alumni.
“Current staff and past MBA students from this university span the globe and offer extensive, diverse, cross-cultural business experiences.”
Graduates of the programme will come away with more than just an added qualification to their names. They will be able to think laterally, challenge convention and offer knowledge-based solutions to business issues.
The MBA can be completed in one year by full-time or part-time study.
Amity also offers scholarships amounting up to 35 per cent of all fees, in the form of a reduction in tuition fees.
However, it is not all work and no play.
While students at Amity are made to work really hard at learning the nuances of the corporate world, there are opportunities for having fun too.
For example, there are presentations and guest lectures on a wide range of topics ranging from personal branding to negotiation skills to crowd engagement.
Then, there are tours to places such as the NEWater plant, to help students understand the innovative water management techniques adopted by Singapore.
The school also regularly organises dinners and forums for students to interact with corporate professionals so that they can develop skill sets outside normal classroom settings, and also to build greater confidence.
Amity has opened a second campus at Kay Siang Road this year. The 1.3ha campus is conveniently located close to Tanglin and Orchard roads.
Within the four-storey building is space for both learning and recreation — with roomy classrooms, studios, laboratories and business incubators alongside a library and student lounge.
