“The programme equips us with the required skills, judgment, and know-how of being an effective and responsible manager. These skills were developed from the training workshops that we attended, as well as in our rotated department where we were put to the test to execute projects that we were in charge in. “

“Through the AMP, I was given the opportunity to spearhead several projects and initiatives, even at the junior level. The projects were intellectually stimulating, challenging but very meaningful. Also, I managed to hone both my soft and hard skills, through the mentorship program as well as undertaking formal classroom training such as the Certified Associate in Project Management. The job rotations within AMP will provide you good exposure into the university’s strategy and operations. I strongly recommend recent graduates who are interested and passionate about the education industry to apply.”
