Steven Goh

Senior Director in IPG Photonics, US

Graduated in Diploma in Business Administration

"Upon completing SPM as a science stream student, I absolutely dislike what I studied. Not knowing what to do next, I fortuitously heard about TARC and its Diploma in Business Administration. The fees was affordable and so even if I failed to convert from science to business, I would not beak my bank. TARC had just started the course at Penang campus and hence I decided to try my luck and enrolled into the course. This turn out to be the beginning of an adventure that change my life forever…

TARC has not only provided me with a world-class education but also shaped me into a well-rounded individual, ready to take on the challenges of the real world. Its lecturers are top notch - they are the guiding light on my educational journey which uncover my interest in business, economics, finance and accounting. TARC laid a solid foundation in my following chapter of tertiary education in the UK and eventually, I qualified as UK Chartered Global Accountant (CIMA). This propel me to develop a successful career in finance and international business and I am now working in Massachusetts, US in Finance, Merger and Acquisition. Looking back, I can confidently say that TARC has prepared me not just for a successful career but also for life. The nurturing environment and constant support from the faculty have instilled in me a sense of self-belief and determination to tackle any challenges that come my way.

To anyone considering TARC, I wholeheartedly recommend this institution. It is a place where dreams are nurtured, talents are hones and lifelong friendships are forged. My time at TARC has been nothing short of transformative and I will forever cherish the memories and experiences I gained during my tenure at TARC. I am proud to be an alumnus of this esteemed institution and will carry the lessons learned throughout my life."

"Enrolling in TARUMT was a choice, but making full use of my time here is an opportunity to all the unending possibilities. When I stepped onto the campus ground on the first day of orientation, I knew my life for sure was going for an adventure full of plot twists and thrill.

Speaking from my own experience here, I never regretted a moment enrolling in this prestigious University. I must give it up to the administrative staff for affirming my choice to study here and to all the dedicated lecturers who poured their hearts out to educate the students and some going the extra mile to give us advice and motivation, whatever it takes for us to do well. 

What I like the most here is that the classes are not too packed so lecturers and tutors can give us that push whenever we need it. Talking about balancing between studies and activities, I'm well active in clubs, societies, sports activities and super invested in my studies as well to make full use of my time here as they have all kinds of clubs and facilities for us to utilize. That's why when I look back, I can smile and say that it was one amazing rollercoaster ride and I wished for other juniors to have this chance to embark on theirs here in TARUMT.

Where I am today right now thriving in my career is all thanks to the foundation that was laid during my tertiary days and it has better equipped me with the knowledge I need to integrate into my company’s structure and workflow."
