 “We’re living in a digital age where new technology is constantly emerging and disrupting how we do business. Luckily or unluckily, depending on one’s perspective, is that no one has cracked it – not even Google or Facebook can say for certain what Digital will be like 10 years from now. Hyper Island equips you with the skills to think about Digital in ways that are technology agnostic. So the knowledge and critical thinking skills you attain will have a far longer shelf life than the next iPhone.

 “What I really liked about Hyper Island was being in a constant feedback loop. Learning new, going to work, applying it, and then going back to studying and exploring. It was a constant input of new ideas with the ability to apply them directly. I really liked this aspect and it was a good decision for me to study part-time at Hyper Island.

"As expected, I’ve started to develop a digital mindset. What I did not expect was how Hyper Island have honed my critical thinking ability, which was emphasised through the journey. It’s definitely a lifelong learning skill that will continue to help me grow. I have learned a lot about myself, including my tenacity for learning. No matter how hectic work have been, I look forward to my monthly classes at Hyper Island."
