International Trading Excellence Awards

The International Trading Excellence Awards were introduced in 2012 and are given to deserving undergraduates going onto their final year of studies. Selection criteria include, but are not limited to, leadership potential, active involvement in co-curricular activities, and a commitment to community service. Special consideration will be given to students with financial needs. Applicants are first shortlisted by ITI@SMU, followed by a panel interview made up of representatives from SMU and ITI@SMU Industry Partners. Each participating organization will be able to select up to 2 award recipients each year.

Successful applicants will also have the opportunity to intern with ITI@SMU’s industry partners where they will have the opportunity to develop deeper insights about the business. No bond is required from the students who successfully apply for the award. Students will only receive the award upon completing the required modules.

In AY2016/2017, 12 students were awarded the Excellence Awards. Apart from the monetary award, the students were also provided with internship opportunities by the sponsoring companies.
