“Studying in MDIS has been a great experience for me. As English is not my first language, I’ve always felt challenged communicating in English. However, all the lecturers are very helpful and have been patient with me throughout my time here. They are always ready and willing to guide their students. They encourage us to do more and that is what keeps me going till now.

Aside from the formal curriculum, I am glad that I joined the MDIS Business Club. It was there that I got the opportunity to better interact and get to know people from diverse backgrounds – some of whom, I call my best friends now”.

“Studying at MDIS has been a truly unforgettable experience. MDIS made it possible for learning to be enjoyable. I enjoyed every step of my course, just as much as it had challenged me, and, pushed me to think outside the box.

My teachers provided constant support and encouragement, and motivated me to hit my full potential. The theoretical knowledge that I gained during my time with MDIS has helped me in the working world. 

In my line of work, I recruit finance executives for major firms, and I am sure with the knowledge gained, it will help me to garner even more executives for major firms.”

“I graduated with 1st Class Honours back in 2016 from MDIS, for the Bachelor of Science in International Tourism and Hospitality Management. During my internship at Ritz-Carlton Millenia Singapore, I was also awarded the “Employee of the Month” in March 2015. The achievements during my time with MDIS drove me to carve out a career path in hospitality.

One of the memories that I still remember to date, is the intense training I had in Tropical Breeze – an in-house hospitality training centre. I trained in two roles there – front desk duties and also restaurant server duties. I treated it as something that will prepare me for internship. Thank you, MDIS for curriculum that prepares us adequately for the industry!”
