Xing Yi, a former student of Chung Cheng High School (Yishun), shares her thoughts with us:-
“I have never regretted choosing the DBA course. My scope of learning in DBA is broader than other business courses as DBA is a general and comprehensive course. The DBA course has prepared me professionally for work by equipping me with the necessary critical thinking skills and broadened my personal horizons with its extensive array of modules. “
“Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today.”
Rachel, a former student of Swiss Cottage Secondary School, also shares her thoughts with us:-
“My classmates have also been great friends to hang out with during breaks and even after school. They have taught me what true friendship is and given me valuable advice and support to me too.”
My experience in SP Business School:
“Firstly, it has helped me to fulfil my dreams of studying business. Being a DBA student, I was able to study a wide variety of business modules and have ample knowledge of it.
Secondly, I am also grateful to the lecturers who walked the extra mile to teach me as much as they could, not only about the modules, but also about life. Their sincerity and passion for teaching has touched me and strengthened my passion for business.
Thirdly, I am also thankful to my classmates and friends who have been through thick and thin with me throughout this journey. They have brought laughter, tears and joy to my life.”

We are proud of their achievement and wish them all the best in their careers!
