This module aims to provide a fundamental understanding of the entrepreneurial process, how entrepreneurs start and implement their business ideas and to instill in students an entrepreneurial mindset.

The course covers some important research and case‐based principles for leadership in the real world of work, with an emphasis on both “eastern” and “western” approaches to leadership. You will learn practical skills and techniques for networking, handling organisational politics, managing and influencing people at work (including goal‐setting, delegating work, running staff meetings, coaching employees, and so on). You will also learn about your own leadership style, strengths and weaknesses, and how to develop your leadership knowledge and skills throughout your careers.

The aim of this course is hence to take students with no prior experience of thinking in a computational manner to a point where they can derive simple algorithms and code the programs to solve some basic problems in their domain of studies. In addition, the course will include topics to appreciate the internal operations of a processor, and raise awareness of the socio‐ethical issues arising from the pervasiveness of computing technology.

The goal of this course is to provide you with an inter-disciplinary introduction to environmental science with key questions to highlight the interconnections between biological, geological, and chemical processes. We aim to convey the basic science between environmental interactions and place it within the context of human impacts and dependence on the natural world. Understanding how humans interact with the system, manage, and sustain it within the context of our economies, governments, and individual choices will be critical for future thought on environmental science. We evaluate the problems of environmental science by examining critical issues impacting the health of our population.

The course introduces Environmental Sociology as a field of inquiry, emphasizing the birth of environmentalism, contemporary theories of society-nature relations, global climate politics, human-animals relations, environmental justice, the role of science and/in policy, and sustainability debate. A central theme that emerges in this course is that the environmental issues we face are almost always profoundly social issues, as well. The aim of the course is to provide a foundation for an informed, critical approach to contemporary environmental issues in society.

Cultural intelligence, CQ is the capability to function effectively across national, ethnic and organizational cultures (Ang & Van Dyne). IQ and EQ are no longer enough, CQ is becoming a critical predictor for success in the borderless world of the 21st century. The good news is that CQ can be developed and learnt by almost anyone. This course will focus on providing you with a conceptual framework for CQ, as well as a set of tools to navigate and explore the world.

This course aims to provide a firm understanding of marketing and is designed for students who have chosen to specialise in disciplines other than business. A hands-on approach is expected and activities have been incorporated to encourage observation and enhance analytical ability. The course will require you to analyse businesses, evaluate alternatives, collaborate with team members, lead discussions, present your analysis and propose recommendations on selected organisations.

This course introduces you to a diverse variety of Singapore literature from the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, including poetry, prose, drama, and film. We will study these texts in relation to their socio-historical contexts, as well as autonomous works of art.

Recurring themes include the formation of Singapore as a nation state, the development of a national identity, tensions in the usage of “standard” and colloquial English, multiculturalism, and the negotiation of social constraints within different communities.

This course examines themes, concepts, theories, and trends which define the study of international development from a critical geographical perspective. Students will gain an understanding of the historical and contemporary challenges of global inequality with reference to specific case studies. We shall be discussing what Development means by examining different development pathways and strategies throughout the global economy. Case studies from around the world are used to provide empirical contexts to the theories we learn about international development practices, processes and problems.

This course is designed where students will learn how the climate system works, what caused climate change in the past, and how climate is and will be changed by human activity. Students will learn about the climate system from both theoretical and observational points of view, and they will gain basic mathematical skills in the process. With that students are able to establish a solid understanding on the evolution of past climate, the physical and chemical basis for climate change, and gain awareness of anthropogenic impact on the climate system. At the end of this course, students will be familiar with analytical and mathematical tools to study the climatic state. And finally, to be able to link the theory to the observation data.
