Industry Advisory Boards (IAB)
Industry Advisory Boards from various sectors were set up to help align Kaplan’s programmes with the needs of different industries.
As experts in their own respective sectors, IAB members reflect on industry viewpoints and provide valuable input on employment demands and the qualities that employers look for in graduates. IAB members co-organise activities like Masterclasses, industry talks and Kaplan Industry Projects.
Kaplan offers local students with work experience (non-credit-bearing internship) to gain valuable industry exposure. For graduating students, this is an excellent opportunity to establish networks with potential employers.
