Default SIM BSc in Business -- good?

Is BSc in Business good, or should I instead choose a course that focus on specific areas (like BSc in Accounting and Finance, BSc in Banking and Finance etc.) ?

Will it be tough to enter this industry line? I suppose it won't be that stable since have to see how economy is?

Hi, I suggest you make sure what you really want before choosing your course. If you are looking forward to be accountant, then it makes sense to go for BSc in Accounting and Finance. If you want a career in bank, then go for BSc in Banking and Finance. If your aim is entrepreneurship, then you may want to go for BSc in Business. Specialising your studies allow you to have better chances to get what you want. Of course, this does not mean that general courses such as BSc in Business do not stand a chance. It's just that the chances are not as high compared to specialised courses. Therefore, please know what you want, else you may be wasting your precious time.

If you are unsure of which career path you want to take, do not rush into it. Please think carefully again and again. Academic studies for degree and higher require not only time, but also a different level of efforts from the diploma or 'A' level you took. Therefore, it is always advisable to choose a course that you can gain the necessary knowledge. The emphasis is on that.

A course that does not equip you with the necessary knowledge, will definitely waste your time and future career advancement opportunities! Your certificate can gain you a chance to get the job you want, but it is the knowledge and skills you need in order to go further. Hope I helped in some way! (:

For HR, most private sector companies aren't that picky. Most wouldn't mind SIM grads. Here's some that you can try:

GE - Jobs in Singapore :: Contact Singapore

LVMH - Singapore Jobs | HR Intern (6-month, Renewable) - LVMH South & South East Asia - Singapore - JobsDB.com

Bosch - Bosch - Current vacancies
Bosch - Current vacancies
Bosch - Current vacancies

Daimler -
Daimler > Careers > Studying > Internship > Internship Worldwide > Asia > Singapore - Daimler South East Asia Pte. Ltd.
(the "Headquarter functions" includes several HR positions)

Lufthansa -
Intern (m/f) Human Resources Development at Lufthansa in Singapur - Job | LinkedIn

Here are a few more...

Richemont Internships Listing ******** – Singapore Internship Programs
Yahoo Internships Listing ******** – Singapore Internship Programs
Internships Listing ******** – Singapore Internship Programs
Sodexo Internships Listing ******** – Singapore Internship Programs

Even if the start date doesn't fit your schedule (or has past), you can just write in and ask if they are looking for interns during the period that you are available. Employers appreciate such initiative and it shows your interest in them.
