As such, a separate conversation exists for those who have already attained their degrees and are looking to further their careers in management, for instance, Mr Rémy Chiapolini, treasury manager at Paypal.

He says: “I reached a point in my career where I was just another good employee. It was hard to differentiate myself from my peers who were as talented and motivated as I was. This was when I started looking at Master of Business Administration (MBA) programmes to upgrade my skills and use it as a stepping stone to venture into new industries.” Mr Chiapolini then signed up for the Executive MBA (EMBA) programme at Rutgers Business School Asia Pacific (RBSAP) and graduated in 2015.

Having graduated with a bachelor’s degree in engineering, Mr Reuben Ong ascribed his postgraduate education to his successful career today.

Within a month of graduating from RBSAP in May 2016, he joined Takeda Pharmaceuticals Asia Pacific as a business unit manager and was recently promoted to head of commercial operations.
