Ong Chee Siang
MRO Procurement Leader, Safran Helicopter Engines Asia Pte Ltd
Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Business with Logistics and Supply Chain Management
Northumbria University Graduate (2022)

I felt lost in 2020, about to turn 40 in a couple of years and unsure if I should switch to a career in Logistics. I had heard that the Logistics sector is fast paced, where there are limited opportunities given my age and lack of experience. At the same time, I did not see myself being able to further progress in my then-career in engineering.

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, I saw studying at Northumbria University as an opportunity. Based on the number of modules I needed to take, the duration of the programme seemed manageable. Furthermore, my friends, who had also graduated from this programme, had shared very positive feedback. Hence, I decided to begin my learning journey with Northumbria University at Kaplan.

The programme offered modules that allowed us to study about global logistics companies and how their operations changed due to the macro environment, and the modules were helpful for those finding a foothold in the Logistics and Supply Chain Management industry or those who want to learn more about the industry.

Not only was the curriculum fully assignment-based, but we could also ask questions about the assignment or seek clarification on the lesson. Although I had no prior background in this industry, the lecturers were supportive and helpful, and they were always willing to answer all my questions.

Through this programme and the attainment of my Degree, I have successfully transitioned into a new career as a Maintenance, Repair and Operations (MRO) Procurement Leader at Safran.


Terence Ong Wei Zhong
Civil Servant, Government Agency
Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Business with Logistics and Supply Chain Management
Northumbria University First Class Honours Graduate (2020)

I decided to study with Northumbria University at Kaplan in Singapore as it is among an elite group of institutions worldwide offering Business Degrees with Dual Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) Accreditation*. I was also attracted to the largely assignment-based learning, which allowed me to better plan my time around my work schedule to complete and submit assignments. As for my choice of major, I chose it as it is related to my current job and I wanted to enhance my knowledge in the field.

The programme has helped to strengthen my job performance. With its assignment-based curriculum, it gave us a more practical education, allowing students to apply the knowledge learned in classes through the assignments given, which were similar to projects assigned at work. In addition, all the research done based on real companies or situations exposed me to current market sentiments and trends, allowing me to learn and improve on some “outdated” practices.

Given the good reputation of Kaplan and its collaboration with reputable universities, taught by very knowledgeable lecturers, I would recommend Kaplan.

This Degree programme may be completed in 16 months, a comfortable duration which allows me to study at my own pace while working. With this Bachelor’s Degree, I feel more confident at work as I am able to better understand my job scope and the demands to be met. In addition, I was given the opportunity to progress in my career by taking on more responsibilities after attaining my Degree.

I would definitely recommend Northumbria University. In fact, one of my friends is already studying here and she is enjoying it!
