From property management to training and credit management, Benjamin Koh recently made a bold career switch and saw the need to acquire new knowledge. Halfway through the University of Essex Accounting and Finance programme, he embarked on a new role as the Head of Business Development at a regional distributor for spices.

“I took up this programme because it covers exactly what I need to hone my skillsets in understanding regional markets and company financials. Though I’m only mid-way through the Degree programme, the modules have been useful and highly applicable to my job daily,” said Benjamin.

While juggling between work and studies is no mean feat, Benjamin has been managing well. He shared, “Having a focused mindset is important. A strong motivation to learn so I can perform better at work keeps me going.”

To make my parents proud, I aspire to follow them in having a career in the financial sector. I knew my chance had come when Kaplan awarded me a scholarship to pursue a Banking and Financial Degree with the University of Essex. Prior to that, the Diploma in Commerce (Finance and Banking) had already built up my fundamental skills and prepared me well for University studies. All this has been made possible under the close guidance of the lecturers. Not forgetting the friends I made in class, we often encouraged and motivated each other during the journey.

Programme taken: Diploma in Accountancy

I have always wanted to become a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA). Enrolling with Kaplan for the Diploma in Accountancy programme was the first step towards my goal. Before enrolling with Kaplan, it was impossible for me to land an accounting job. Through the completion of my programme, I received two job offers to enter the accounting industry. I started my career in the accounting industry as an Accounts Assistant in an SME. Today, I am working in a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) firm where I will continue to grow in my career in the industry.

The Kaplan Diploma programme has imparted me with relevant knowledge and opened doors to the industry. It has helped my career progression and brought me so much nearer to my goal. Not only that, I was also able to progress into studying for an Accountancy and Financial Management Degree programme with the University of Portsmouth.

When I thought of furthering my studies, Kaplan came to mind first because of its established name for private education in Singapore and around the world.

I chose this Accountancy and Financial Management Degree programme from the University of Portsmouth as it offers both specialisations in Accounting and Financial Management. Within 18 months, I completed the programme with First Class Honours. The Degree will open the doors for me to pursue my ACCA qualification ahead of my peers as it provides me with exemptions from ACCA Fundamental papers. As such, I can take the ACCA Professional papers directly should I choose to do so in the future.

Being part of an exclusive club’s financial team, this programme has expanded my perspective of the industry.

The programme helped a lot in enhancing my Accounting and Taxation knowledge, which I could readily apply to my profession.

Upon my completion of this Degree, I have also been granted exemptions from 9 ACCA Fundamental papers. This will help me to consider my future goals of obtaining the ACCA qualification more quickly as it is very useful for those in the Accounting field. I can then make up for ‘lost time’ during my youth when I was solely focused on developing my career.

I was looking to pursue an education that will enhance my knowledge and at the same time, open up good career opportunities as I progress in the Accounting field. The programme had a good combination of subjects that not only further deepened existing knowledge but also cultivated effective analytical and critical thinking skills, which I felt helped my job as I could provide my management team with more relevant analysis for decision making.

I was also impressed by the professionalism and patience of the staff at Kaplan when I needed more information about the programme. The affordable programme fees, flexible payment plans and the central campus location sealed my decision to study here.
