Poised for Success
With a penchant for travelling and a passion to learn about different business cultures around the world, Renee Hong embarked on the journey to pursue her interest at SIM GE by taking up the Diploma in International Business (DIB) programme. The time that she has spent in SIM GE has been nothing short of an enriching one as she gained a wealth of experience and formed many special memories beyond the classroom. As Renee pursues her degree studies in international business at the University of Birmingham (UK), she reflects on her time spent here...
A Passion For International Business
“I have always been captivated by the way different businesses of varying scales operate especially on a global basis. This has intrigued me to venture further and take up international business.”
Taking Part In Business China Youth Showdown
“I was given the opportunity to take part in Business China Youth Showdown, a competition that serves as a platform for youth to gain an in-depth understanding of China through research. This experience has allowed me to gain a deeper understanding of global issues and how to view them from different perspectives. I am more confident in speaking and expressing my views now.”
Gaining Business Insights
“The DIB programme has enabled me to gain insights into different business cultures, and to view issues from different perspectives by combining the experience of another culture and business.”
Renee spent time working in SIM GE’s Marketing & Communications Division.
Growing Through New Experiences
“I was offered the opportunity to work part-time in SIM GE’s Marketing & Communications Division. Through daily experiences, I have learned how to work as a team and experience things first-hand such as planning for events and handling logistics. This has definitely helped me in managing my time better and to do things more efficiently.”
Lessons Beyond The Classroom
“Having the opportunity to have worked in SIM GE has been memorable as I got to experience the work life that I am unable to learn from classrooms. I also bonded with my colleagues who helped me out a lot when I was facing difficulties at work.”

Making A Mark
“I decided to pursue a degree programme in Birmingham as I believe that learning an additional language such as Japanese will provide me with a greater advantage in communication especially in an international context. I hope to work in a MNC (multinational corporation) that allows me to travel and interact with people of different cultures.”
