At Kaplan, we are focused on delivering quality education and enhancing the employability of our students by equipping them with prior exposure, experience and key skillsets that employers look for in a fresh graduate.
The Employability and Student Affairs (ESA) team at Kaplan works hand in hand with partners across various specialisations and domains to develop such industry-ready talents. By collaborating with us, there are opportunities to co-educate and co-develop the next generation of young talents.
Why work with or recruit Kaplan students and graduates?
We have a large student population that pursues a myriad of programmes across numerous disciplines. Together with our reputable University Partners, we offer quality education where students are trained to be critical thinkers and problem solvers who can readily contribute to the economy upon graduation.
As no team operates individually, our students work on complex problems collaboratively. They become well-versed in solving real-world issues through hands-on projects and exposure to various industry domains. Students also work with others from different disciplines, and this strengthens their communication and interpersonal skills.
Given we are attuned to industry trends and the labour market, this allows us to provide relevant training to develop skills of our students to meet the demands required by the industry.
Apart from academic learning, Kaplan students expand their knowledge and develop skills through other industry engagement initiatives such as Career Fairs, Recruitment Talks, Work Experiences, Industry Visits, MasterClasses, Volunteering opportunities and many others.
Career Services for Industry Partners / Employers
Our strategic partnerships with industry partners and employers help to bridge talent gap for the industries and build dedicated future talent pipelines for companies.
Partners and employers interact and communicate with our students directly by being involved in our planned strategic activities, including the Kaplan Industry Project (KIP), Entrepreneurship Talks, Industry Visits, MasterClasses and more.
