Yeoh Fang Rui, BSc in Real Estate student.

My Name is Yeoh Fang Rui and I am a Final Year Student in BSc(Hons) Real Estate. During my summer break, I had the privilege to be offered an internship under Centre Management Services in Sunway Group. In this department, I have gained many valuable insights regarding the planning, development,... coordination, management, and enhancement of retail malls.
Besides, I also had cross exposure training under Operations, Technical Services and Marketing. In Operations, I was taught how to identify and solve operational issues within the mall. I was also involved in several pre-opening inspections and was taught to identify and avoid any potential operational issues that may arise. In Technical Services, I was given a detailed tour around Sunway Pyramid to thoroughly understand what are the technical systems within a mall and their respective functions. Lastly in Marketing, I was given a task to research about the Upcoming E-Commerce and O2O trends.
My internship journey contained many elements that relates to what I have learnt in UoRM especially in the planning and management context; being on the field certainly was an eye opener for me. Here I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to all my seniors for their patient guidance and unconditional support throughout my internship. I would also like to specially thank Mr KS Wong for his mentorship and for always going the extra mile to provide me with a wholesome internship experience. I truly enjoyed my time at Sunway.
