Diploma in Business Studies (N45) - Psychology Specialisation Option



What will I learn?

Whether you want to be an entrepreneur or a business-savvy professional in our global economy, the Diploma in Business Studies (BS) will equip you with the skills and knowledge covering all aspects of a business operation.

Start With a Firm Foundation

You will be grounded in the core fundamentals of business management. The sound business knowledge and skills you pick up will come in handy in a variety of careers. What’s more, many local and overseas universities recognise our curriculum and offer our graduates module exemptions.

One of the hallmarks of an NP education is industry training which offers you an insight into real business environments and challenges. You will get to learn from the best in the industry through local and overseas internships as well as project collaborations. Our partners include Angsana Hotels & Resorts, DBS, OCBC, Frasers Centre point, CapitaLand Mall Asia, Resorts World Sentosa, Robert Bosch and NTUC FairPrice.


Our array of flagship programmes will give you the chance to market actual products and services. Under the Realistic, Experiential & Applied Learning (REAL) programme, BS students will plan and implement marketing strategies.

Students can also work with organisations in human resource projects such as planning and conducting training activities through Thumbs UP! (Training Human Resources for Better Skills – a Unique Programme) or set up businesses and carry out projects under the Experiential Training for Entrepreneurship Development (EXTEND) programme.

Career prospects

With a constant demand for business graduates in various industries in Singapore and the region, BS graduates are highly sought after by employers in finance, banking, marketing, retailing, marketing communication and human capital management.

What’s more, your specialisation will give you the added advantage when it comes to jobs in business development, corporate ventures, corporate investments, finance, marketing research, advertising as well as reward management, talent acquisition and organisational development.

The BS diploma is recognised by all local universities and many overseas universities, with many of them granting module exemptions. In fact, our graduates enjoy at least one year’s exemption at many universities in Australia and the United Kingdom.

Professional bodies such as the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators (ICSA), the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) also grant BS graduates exemptions in professional examinations
