Programme Details

RISE participants will choose one of three specialised digital pathways – Business & Data Analytics, Digital Sales & Marketing or Digital Transformation & Change Management – depending on preference and background experience. Common across all three pathways are a set of core business and digital foundational courses that aim to provide a holistic skillset grounded in real life industry context and experience. Unlike traditional university courses and corporate trainings, this programme takes a differentiated, application-based approach to learning. Expect project-based teachings guided by industry practitioners from a pragmatic, hands-on perspective.

Unique Project-Based Learning

Our pedagogical approach to this programme is very unique. RISE is not training for the sake of training, but to equip you with the skills and a portfolio of experiences to be able to drive real world impact.

Developing a digital marketing strategy for a new consumer product

Most frequently asked questions

  • Can I enroll if I am employed?

    SGUnited Mid-Career Pathways Programme – Company Training is targeted at helping unemployed individuals.

    Furthermore, RISE has a heavy workload, i.e. 4-6 hours of scheduled classes on 4 working days per week during working hours. For someone with a full-time job, it is very hard to handle the workload and schedule. For someone with some part time work with flexible workload and schedule, it may be possible.

    Therefore, RISE will not consider applicants who have full-time work commitment. If you are serving your notice period, please make sure you will be fully available by your course start date and please remember to select “unemployed” as your employment status on the registration form.

  • How do I know which pathway is right for me?

    We encourage you to do your own research into which of the three digital pathways fit your interests and are more aligned with your future career goals. We will also assist you by assessing your CV and guiding you towards a pathway that will most likely resonate with your current work experience and skills.

  • Do I have to pay for RISE?

    Yes. The net fee after government subsidy is $500. This is a one-time fee and payable to complete the enrolment process. Learners can redeem their SkillsFuture Credit to subsidise this fee.

  • What is the mode of learning?

    Participants will undergo a 6-month full-time training that is conducted completely virtually. The course will be taught through a combination of live lectures, workshops, real company projects and e-learning.
