This diploma lets you…
  • Learn to conceptualise, plan and execute memorable events such as webinars, conferences, exhibitions, and more in various formats — physical, virtual and hybrid

  • Embark on internships at high-profile companies such as Constellar Holdings, Experia Events, Kingsmen, Pico, Resorts World Sentosa, and Mandai Wildlife Group

    Success is all in the attitude, the desire to achieve, the determination to fight for our hopes and dreams, the perseverance and the resilience to stay on the path that we’ve set for ourselves. DIEM has taught me to never give up on myself, and to adapt, no matter what the situation. Challenges only make us stronger and wiser.
