Gaining Funding from your College
In order to make a convincing argument that it is worth your college’s investment, you need to demonstrate that getting the degree will strengthen your understanding of the business environment and that the college will reap the benefits in the long-run. Proving how any new skills you obtain will be used within the college upon your return, and ensuring you keep reflecting on feedback on how you’ve done in your role to ensure you keep on improving and moving up. The bottom line is that you need to be fully prepared and show your employer that an investment on your education is also an investment in the college’s long-term goals.

Make sure you clearly articulate to your reporting supervisor your expected benefits to the college. Define measurements to assess how your contribution will increase during or after the EMBA in terms of skills and knowledge acquired, that will benefit both the organisation and you as an individual. During the EMBA program you will develop the skills and knowledge you need to become an effective global business leader. You will pick up skills with the core modules around the key tools and techniques such as Global Leadership and Organisational Behavior, and Financial Accounting, Marketing Management, Supply Chain Management amongst the others.

For example, the ‘Business Strategy’ module at the end of the program puts together what has been covered in the previous 17 modules that will provide students the opportunity to examine the challenges and complexities faced by businesses via case studies that covers various topics. You may also like to share with your company that the teaching methodology is highly practical where students will be put into groups to address case studies (typically Harvard Business School cases). We have a policy whereby students are rotated for group projects so that they would work with a classmate at least once in their academic career at The Asia Pacific School of Business to ensure students benefit from the experience of their fellow classmates.

Industry-Wide Course Fee Protection Insurance
The Asia Pacific School of Business has in place an Industry-wide Course Fee Protection Insurance Policy (IWC) to protect the paid fees of students residing in Singapore, renewable on an annual basis. The IWC serves to protect the student’s fees in the event that the PEI is unable to continue operations due to insolvency, and/or regulatory closure. In addition, the IWC protects the student if the PEI fails to pay penalties or return fees to the student arising from judgments made against it by the Singapore courts. We have appointed Lonpac Insurance Bhd as our IWC insurance provider. Under the IWC insurance scheme, students’ fees are insured by Lonpac Insurance Bhd. In case of events as stated above, students will be able to claim their paid fees from Lonpac Insurance Bhd. A copy of the insurance certificate is available here.
