DBA graduate now an NTU ASEAN Scholar - The 3 Years That Changed My Life

Lee Qi Ni, a Diploma in Business Administration (DBA) graduate (Class of 2012) recounted her memorable journey with SP Business School…

The 1st day I stepped into SP’s Business School, I was just a girl fresh out of secondary school and pretty much clueless about business when I embarked on my Diploma in Business Administration (DBA).

Yet, in what seems to a blink of the eye, I have graduated! The three years just whizzed by! You know what they say about time passing quickly when you are having fun? Well, I now know that it is so true!

Looking back, I am very grateful for the lectures, tutorials and projects – they were quite hectic at times but I have learned enormously from them. On top of business knowledge, I have acquired invaluable interpersonal and presentation skills.

It was an honour to learn from the lecturers who generously shared their knowledge and work experiences. I was very blessed to have made two very good friends amongst my classmates whom I enjoyed working on projects with.

I also had the privilege to work with peers from different courses on business competitions such as the Fedex International Trade Competition 2011.  My team won the Singapore poly and junior college category and we entered the world finals held in Bangkok.  We came in second and took home US$3,000!  In addition, I also had ample opportunities to take part in fundraising and charitable events in my CCA with the Welfare Services Club.  

Overall, my 3 years in SP pursing the Diploma in Business Administrative (DBA) course was an enriching and life-changing time for me.  It transformed me.  SP has given me a firm foundation and a clear direction in life.  I will surely miss SP which gave me a safe haven to learn and grow. I am proud to say I am a SPian and DBAian for life! 

In May 2012, QiNi was awarded the prestigious ASEAN Scholarships by the National Technological University (NTU) of Singapore.  The Scholarships aim to provide opportunities to the young people of ASEAN to develop their potential and equip them with skills that will enable them to confidently step into the new millennium.  QiNi is currently pursuing her Bachelor in Business specialising in Human Resource Management (HRM) with NTU’s Nanyang Business School.  We wish her all the best as she further her studies and blazes new trail of success!
