Student Testimonials

"During my internship at the Supply Chain arm of Johnson & Johnson’s (J&J) Medical Devices division, I conceptualized and led the development of a Key Performance Indicator Dashboard to generate and benchmark monthly actual business performance against pre-determined targets and identify potential areas of improvement within the Business. This experience has changed my perspectives of the internal operations within such MNCs and exposed me to how cross-functional teams work and collaborate with each other in the delivery of products to the market." (2017)

"As a Credit Analyst Intern for the Worldwide Credit Management Department at Lenovo Beijing, I analysed customer's financial health and evaluated their credit worthiness before providing recommendations on the appropriate line of credit, as well as support decision making action plans for  the higher management. In addition, I also monitored customer's trading activities with the company and requested credit ratings of customers using financial tools from credit agencies. With this experience, I am proud to say that I feel evermore confident and prepared for any upcoming jobs that may come." (2017)
