While SMU has so much to offer in terms of academics and programmes, it is important to be proactive about enhancing your skills and charting your career.
Joining organising committees and clubs definitely has its benefits in kickstarting your journey of personal development. While it requires more commitment, the course of planning initiatives will help you hone people-management, decision-making, communication and conflict-management skills amongst many others.
