When preparing for your future, it’s necessary to explore your strengths so as to get a leg-up in the industry. But what skills are really important?
Life as a secondary school student may seem a little stuck when it evolves around allowances and examinations. Be it good meals, movie tickets, piano classes or hanging out with friends, you might often find yourself running out of money before the month ends. Furthermore, budgeting may not be something you enjoy especially if you have a tendency to overspend.

Once you get into a university, you will find that things are not all that different when it comes to budgeting and keeping track of your finances. There will, after all, be so much to explore like the latest cafes and new gadgets and your mind will be opened to experiences such as adventurous road trips. Then comes working adult life, where you will discover that life mainly revolves around balancing the books! Things that you will have to handle include rent, internet and phone bills, food expenses, holidays, giving your parents money, weekend parties and not to mention savings as well as investments.
Therefore, you need to have a strong skillset and mindset to make money and manage it. The best part about undergraduate programmes in Business & Accounting is that it equips you with such versatile skills that you can excel in any industry. The coursework provides you with practical skills required in the real world. It also enhances your talents that are necessary not only in the job market or in growing your own business, but also in your day-to-day life.
Many of you might think that being good at numbers is the only requirement to become an Accountant or a Business Professional. However, you not only have to understand complex data but you also have to put it across to others. As a business professional, you have to communicate business proposals, work with your team to come up with ideas, present solutions, and formulate rules just to name a few. In short, the numbers need to be translated and expressed in words.
In school, while most students shy away from presenting their views on a topic, that one confident student who always spoke up, got the opportunity to shine and eventually edged the others in class during the exam.
The same goes for work life. The best communicator walks away with the deal. The undergraduate programmes in Business & Accounting ensure that you are able to break out of your shell and express yourself and your views confidently in public. As you enhance your communication and interpersonal skills through presentations, group activities and workshops, you will realise that confidence goes a long way in your professional life.
How often do you feel awestruck by a new sci-fi movie or admire the innovation of a new gadget which takes over the market and has the social media in a frenzy? Did you ever wonder about how these entrepreneurs come up with such amazing ideas for start-ups?
Well, the more you question, the better you learn. Every creative idea, innovation or discovery is the product of a curious mind. It was Steve Job’s curiosity for typefaces that led to his sense of design and it is this design that differentiated Apple from other products in the market.
The undergraduate programmes in Business & Accounting inculcate in you an inquisitive nature. It helps you learn how to explore, observe and ask questions which in turn leads to innovation. Out-of-the-box thinking is a must-have skill and undergraduate programmes in Business & Accounting is certainly of great help to nurture the best in you.
Do you remember the one friend who missed the school bus at least twice a week? Or have you thought about why you are always rushing to complete your homework before school the next morning?
The reason is simple but often ignored. Unintentionally or habitually, we delay in doing tasks until it becomes an urgency. The importance of time management in school life may be ignored, but these little stresses caused by your habit of procrastinating tasks often turns into a big ugly monster as you enter university life, finally bursting when you’re in the working world.
As you juggle with workshops, presentations and exams, undergraduate programmes in Business & Accounting ensure that time management becomes an integral part of your daily life. You learn to prioritise your tasks as you have to stick to the deadlines for each one of them. The skill of time management, thus developed, becomes the reason for success in both your academic and professional life.
