What will I learn?

Travel every year and even plan your own overseas study trip to a destination of your choice

Be mentored by business practitioners

Doing business across borders and cultures can be a complex affair. The Diploma in International Business (IBZ) provides you with an understanding of global affairs and equips you with key business competencies in areas such as human capital management, marketing communication and entrepreneurship. You will also get the opportunity to travel every year for learning trips or even propose an overseas study trip to a destination of your choice.

With our programme strongly endorsed by the Singapore Business Federation and through our partnership with the Singapore Shippers’ Academy, you will be able to build an international network of contacts and gain strong industry experience while studying in NP.

Shanghai Overseas Centre

Our unique overseas centre helps to facilitate student learning programmes in China. Located at a prime business address in Shanghai, the centre is where you will get to attend talks and be mentored by experienced business practitioners.
