VOICES OF STUDENTS AND ALUMNI
"The ITI track offered by SMU equipped me with the necessary tools to pursue a career in the commodities trading and maritime services industry. As a student, I was also provided with numerous opportunities to gain critical exposure to the industry through internships, non-credit courses, networking sessions, and even industry-specific conferences."

"The MBOT track curriculum has established strong linkages with the maritime industry which provides students with an abundance opportunities to interact and exchange ideas with industry practitioners. I particularly enjoyed the eye-opening industry study mission to Hamburg/Copenhagen to learn about the European shipping environment. The Work Study Elective (WSE) was also an enriching program which allowed me to clear credit units while gaining practical field experience."

"I always had a passion for shipping and commodity trade. One of the key highlights in my academic experience in SMU so far would definitely have to be the industry study mission to Vietnam. It was insightful as we got to visit various commodity factories and ports located in the city."
