This option is ideal for students from the region who wish to avoid the expense of studying in the UK. The BSc International Business/ International Business with Mandarin include a compulsory period of study overseas.
Birmingham Business School is now offering a number of Undergraduate Business programmes in Singapore. Faculty who already teach modules in Birmingham have flown to Singapore to teach the same modules in block format.
The programmes are proving attractive to Singaporean students and the first cohort of 70 students will graduate next summer. The second cohort has 100 students. 8 students on the International Business variant spent March – May 2010 in Birmingham. This was so popular that 6 of them chose to stay in the UK to finish their degree. We are now preparing for the second cohort of students to arrive. They will study a short programme including modules on British culture and team building. In order to complete their degree, last years’ students will take up internship positions in China and in Vietnam.
Morris Lin, one of the first students to enroll on the course said; “I recently completed a Diploma in Business Management from SIM University and all along I wanted to study for a degree course. I am interested in pursuing a career in the business sector and I chose Business Management as my path towards fulfilling my goal. University of Birmingham is a prestigious university with a remarkable reputation in the world and all the while was my ideal choice. I am grateful to both SIM and University of Birmingham for the opportunity given to students and also largely thankful to my parents who sacrificed much to give me the opportunity. It is a great privilege and tremendous learning experience for me, interacting with a group of selfless and dedicated students who care so much about their beneficiaries and believe in what they do. I am enjoying the course especially with the delicateness and the willingness of the helpful professors who have flown half way round the world to share their knowledge with us”.
