At Kaplan, we are committed to providing quality education through higher learning and skills development. As a result, Kaplan students will experience a holistic education with emphasis on graduate outcomes that will enhance their employability.
Kaplan Industry Advisory Boards (IABs)
Our three Kaplan Industry Advisory Boards, comprising industry leaders and entrepreneurs, provide industry perspectives and insights that help us ensure our curriculum is current, relevant and robust. These, together with our enhanced employability initiatives, help us prepare our students to be industry-ready, with knowledge and key skill sets that employers are looking for in a new graduate.
Developing Industry-Ready Talent
We have a comprehensive series of initiatives to complement our students’ academic learning. Students will be guided to build their professional profile and be equipped with soft, technical and digital skills, ready for life after graduation. Our holistic offering of these initiatives promotes skills-based learning that aims to help our graduates be career and industry-ready to make an impact in the real world.
Graduate Employability After Programme Completion
All statistics are based on the Kaplan Graduate Employment Survey 2020/21 conducted by Nexus Link Pte Ltd for graduating cohorts between June 2020 – May 2021. Respondents include full-time (FT) graduates: 700; and part-time (PT) graduates: 1,066. This survey is not the same survey conducted by the Committee for Private Education (CPE). As a result, the CPE Graduate Employment Survey may not be directly comparable due to some differences in sample size scope between the two surveys.
