Career Launchpad

Overview

ADMI’s Career Launchpad is a requirement for all Diploma students. The career launchpad equips the students with the digital and soft-skills they need to successfully launch careers in their industry of choice.

Through this one-year programme, students practice essential life and leadership skills, hone their professional skills and develop the confidence they need to effectively communicate, collaborate, and contribute to multidisciplinary, multicultural and increasingly virtual teams.

Students engage in industry exposure through events, conferences, workshop, mentorship talks and work experience- do a shoot, animation, poster for an employer partner under the supervision of a technical expert.

As a result, when students finish their 4th term, they have broader exposure and network within their industry and a portfolio that includes significant work experience even before they go on their internship.

Upon completing the Career Launchpad programme, students earn a Global Professional Standards Certificate.
