A qualification in business administration gives graduates opportunities abound. From start-ups and local companies, to non-profits, to working for global companies. I had a good experience in SP Business Admin as I managed to balance both my academics and student life, and that gave me the best of both worlds - intelligence and being street smart. In addition, I embarked on a community service project to Thailand which really opened my eyes and gave a fresh new perspective, leading to my creation of a non-government organisation which promotes volunteerism in Singapore.
