Head of Centre Message
Hello and welcome to the Imperium Business School. I am Dr Stanley Yeow and the head of school.
As a chartered accountant and having being involved in management over many years in industry, I am very passionate about preparing the next generation of workforce that are empowered to both strategically and operationally make a significant contribution to organisations in the new era of Industry 4.0 where business models and traditional work environment are gradually influenced by the convergence of enabling technologies such as big data analytics, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, additive manufacturing, robotics and the Internet of Things (IoT).
With the ever evolving business environment that pose significant challenges and expectations on the modern workforce, the Imperium Business School has designed programmes that are not only academically rigorous and current, but are structured to develop the critical competencies that are highly sought after by industry, making our graduates career-ready.
Our programmes cover areas in business, management, marketing, accounting and finance, and our students undergo a holistic learning experience that focus on critical thinking and problem solving coupled with technical and soft skill sets to operationalise the application of knowledge to effectively address and manage issues arising from circumstances within and without the organisation, in both the domestic and international context. Students will learn and engage with our lecturers who are not only passionate but are industry experts.
As such, I am confident that our graduates will be well placed to excel in industry both locally and globally.
So with this, I invite you to join us and begin your journey to a bright and successful future. Thank you.
About the Programme
This programme prepares students for the exciting world of accounting and finance. Students will not only learn the technical aspects of this discipline but be exposed to the latest development in this field of study brought about by globalisation and the 4th Industrial Revolution. The programme is also designed to focus on the application of knowledge to practical scenarios that mirror those in industry. Students will also undergo workplace experiential learning during an internship with a commercial firm during the industrial training module of this programme. Hence, upon completion of this programme, graduates should be well equipped to excel in this field and/or to pursue a professional accounting qualification. Students who graduate from this programme will get exemption from 9 modules when they enrol for the ACCA programme and hence only have to study the last 4 modules to graduate. Throughout your study in this programme, you will also benefit from lectures and seminars on block chain, data analytics, machine learning, resume preparation, job-hunting, using social media to enhance your professional profile and more.
