Designed in collaboration with the Cornell-Nanyang Institute of Hospitality Management, the Singapore Tourism Board and major industry players, this specialisation prepares you for a career in the dynamic and high-growth tourism and hospitality industry. You will acquire essential knowledge, understanding and competencies from studying a wide range of general business and specialised courses. The programme is international in scope, reflecting the global reach of the industry, but with a focus on the region.
The Bachelor of Business programme is made up of two main components: Core and Broadening. The Core component bridges theory with real-world practice to equip you with strong competencies in problem-solving and interpersonal skills that will enable you to handle unstructured, complex and strategic challenges in the business arena. Included in this are courses specific to the specialisation that you have opted for. The Broadening component, or the General Education Requirement (GER), offers you flexibility to pursue study in fields beyond your major discipline, to broaden your perspectives and free your mind to its fullest potential.
Opportunities for more focused interdisciplinary learning and exposure are available through the University Minor Programme. This allows you to pursue up to 2 secondary fields of study outside of Nanyang Business School, out of a list of over 30 minors offered by other schools in the university. These include Communication Studies, Psychology, Entrepreneurship, Mathematics, and Public Administration. Minor courses taken will go towards fulfilling Unrestricted Elective requirements of the General Education Requirement.
Alternatively, if you prefer to pursue a second specialisation within Nanyang Business School, you may do so in the second year of study after demonstrating academic excellence and potential in your first year of study. The Second Specialisation Programme offers an option to obtaining a second set of skills and knowledge within business and management that will give you an edge when you begin your career. Courses taken under the Second Specialisation Programme will go towards fulfilling Unrestricted Elective requirements of the General Education Requirement.
