Diploma In Business Studies (DBS)
In January 2017, Singapore Sports School opened its doors to its first cohort of student-athletes on the Diploma in Business Studies (Entrepreneurship Management Option) (BS-EMGT or NP-SSP DBS). This new customised diploma is delivered in collaboration with Ngee Ann Polytechnic School of Business and Accountancy. With the establishment of this additional post-secondary pathway, Sports School student-athletes have another through-train academic option which allows them to bypass the national examinations at the end of secondary school. Other through-train options available to Sports School student-athletes are the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme and the customised Diploma in Sport Management conducted in Sports School by Republic Polytechnic.
The flexible and athlete-friendly design of the programme allows up to 25 student-athletes in every cohort to continue to develop in their sport and pursue their academic aspirations in this business-related course concurrently.
“The flexible timetable and allowances for granting Leave of Absence opens up more opportunities for me to participate in overseas training and competitions. This is especially crucial for fencers, where international exposure will give us that extra edge over our competitors. Yet, the unique structure of the course, such as the delivery of one module a month and the use of technology in teaching, will help me keep abreast with my work even with my busy competition schedules.”
