1. Business Management

Whether it’s a small family-owned shop or a massive global enterprise, businesses of all sizes require skilled leaders to navigate the waters. And in Singapore, a preferred country for business owners, your position as a business management graduate can give you an extra edge in landing that coveted role in prestigious companies. By studying business management, you’ll have the tools to chart your own course in any industry that piques your interest.

Our business management degree courses are jointly offered by renowned institutions worldwide. These include the Nottingham University Business School and the University of Newcastle Business School, which are recognised by international accreditation bodies, such as AACSB, EQUIS and/or AMBA. Notably, the AACSB accreditation is only awarded to the top 5% of the business schools globally.

2. Marketing

In a world oversaturated with digital content and products, grabbing consumers’ attention with effective messages is an increasingly herculean task. This creates a growing need for marketing experts, especially in Singapore, where digital marketing professionals rank among the top five sought-after talents.

By enrolling in one of PSB Academy’s marketing courses, you can build a foundation in topics, including emerging fields like digital marketing and analytics. Through this, you can be equipped with the requisite skills to break into the industry and stand out in the job market. And the best part? Our instructors are experienced industry practitioners, so you’ll get the inside scoop on skills practical for your career.

3. IT & Computer Science

With the rise of cutting-edge AI tools like ChatGPT and the widespread adoption of technology in business, companies are turning to IT and computer science experts to support their growth agenda. In fact, JobStreet Singapore’s platform alone recorded a whopping 63% year-on-year (YoY) growth in tech job ads.

With the right skills and training, you could be at the forefront of this exciting market, and PSB Academy’s IT and computer science courses hold the key to unlocking your potential. With the courses conducted by industry practitioners and offering opportunities for industry immersion, you can be confident in building the skills and connections to achieve a fulfilling career.

4. Cyber Security

In today’s digitised world, the rise of emerging technologies and the Internet of Things (IoT) has brought new vectors for exploitation by cyber criminals, with 70% of companies suffering an attack in the past 12 months. Consequently, businesses in the Asia Pacific are stepping up their investment in cyber security to boost their resilience.

By enrolling in one of PSB Academy’s cyber security courses, you can gain essential skills such as identifying and implementing network security controls, software engineering and more. Some programmes even offer opportunities to earn an extra certification from EC-Council. Through these, the course empowers you to leverage the employment possibilities in this field. If you are passionate about making a difference in the industry, there has never been a better time.

5. Sports Science

In recent years, the Singapore government has focused more on preventive care, and the interest in fitness has grown since the Covid-19 pandemic. Consequently, the healthcare, sports and fitness fields call for the need to work more closely with patients or clients to manage their health goals and concerns.

This is where pursuing a sports science course, such as PSB Academy’s diploma or bachelor’s degree programme, is advantageous. With the course covering areas such as sports coaching and chronic disease prevention, it enables you to acquire skills the industry demands, and this gives you a competitive edge in the job market.

Above all, you’ll be able to work with industry-standard facilities and technology through hands-on lessons in the Sports Science lab. These include speed gates and 3D motion cameras, all of which give you practical exposure useful for your future career in sports science, be it as a personal fitness trainer or health consultant.

6. Nursing

With an ageing population and the Singapore government’s increased emphasis on disease prevention and staying active, nurses are finding themselves facing new challenges and requirements in their roles. This is where PSB Academy‘s nursing course can help.

Offering training in areas like nursing patients with chronic illness, the programme, accredited by Singapore Nursing Board (SNB), better equips you to meet the changing needs of your patients. Furthermore, our tripartite membership with the Singapore Nurses Association (SNA) and La Trobe University offers access to SNA’s workshops and activities alongside the university’s educational resources.
