Diploma in Business & Retail Management 

"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."
