Growing demand for Tech Professionals 

Demand for reskilling and upskilling of the workforce in Singapore is expected to increase as the nation continues its economic transformation.

These programmes will provide appropriate knowledge and training to utilize these technologies in response to workplace demands. For example, based on the latest statistics, a Chief Security Officer will earn up to $360,000 per annum. 

Invest in priority skills to seize new opportunities

New and emerging growth areas will bring about new jobs and changes to existing jobs and skills. Prioritising the acquisition of relevant skills in these growth areas will enable you to access new opportunities. The suite of specialised masters programs will be offered in modular formats to meet the schedules of busy professionals and can be completed within one year (12 months). Students will study the application of frontier tech skills including machine learning, cyber security, and data analytics across many sectors such as healthcare, manufacturing, sales and marketing, healthcare, financial services, and risk management, as well as key theory and best practices in data visualization, AI and operations management, and AI in human resources. Students may begin courses at any time during the academic year.

Build your Tech Skills stacks

To perform well in every job role, you will require both technical skills and critical-thinking skills. Aventis Academic Director, Professor Malick, shared, “Whilst bachelor and diploma programs offer a broad curriculum, it typically lacks the depth of specialization provided in a master’s degree.” Our new suite of new master’s programs will build on students’ experience and develop their knowledge and its applications in many facets of business. With this newly launched Masters Programme, we look forward to nurturing the next generation of Frontier tech practitioners and helping them unlock career opportunities in the digital economy. ” 

The course challenged me to think in a different way and helped me to develop a holistic approach to the industry I work in. After finishing my course, I was promoted to Head of Global Security Operations and now I am moving to an even bigger company with a broader role.” 

– Mr. Luca, SVP Head of Group Corporate Security

This new suite of Masters is also advantageous for individuals who already have an undergraduate degree in business, computer science, computer engineering, information technology, or information systems. 

“Thank you, Aventis Graduate School, for organizing great events for career opportunities in frontier technologies. The masters’ programmes in these technologies, especially the MSc in Cyber Security, are helping cyber professionals to grow in their careers.
