Student Review

Ashok Kumar Malik

My study experience here at IMSC was fascinating! It allowed me to develop in-depth knowledge and have a new perspective on Singapore's business and retail management which I can apply back to India. I also enjoyed the open-minded and rich interaction with my classmates and the lecturers during my time here. The knowledge acquired can also be readily used in my job.

Diploma in Business & Retail Management

Sachin Sharma

The Business & Retail Management Diploma taught me the sound fundamentals of running a business with its balanced modules. The real-life encounters shared by the lecturers, as well as the study visits, allowed us to witness first-hand, new retail concepts and trends that made teaching very insightful. Most of all, I would like to thank the college for fulfillling my passion for soccer that is combined with retail business! I couldn't be happier when I was selected for an Industrial Attachment at a top local sports chain.
