The financial market is currently expanding, and investor relations is a critical component in today's work world. Companies are asking for people that know how and why investor relations work. Our sessions will be a mix of both theoretical as well as practical elements. The end point being the student will have a fair amount of practical experience once they attend and finish this course.

The CR Practicum is open to both Year 2 and Year 4 students in the coming semester. In this course, students work in teams to conceptualize and carry out research projects for client organizations (within or outside NTU). In the process of conducting the research projects, students will learn important skills such as negotiating with the client, budgeting, research design, training and management of coders and interviewers, analysis of data and presentation of findings to the client. Besides gaining research skills and experience, the course will offer opportunities for networking with organizations outside SCI and NTU, and will help students develop a research portfolio that will be useful in their future career. Projects in CR Practicum can be basic academic research or applied market research. If funding is approved, possible projects for the forthcoming semester may include: a) a CATI survey for the Republic of Singapore Navy; b) a survey on JC students’ awareness and perception of SCI. 4
