Find out what the UOB Management Associate Programme means to our alumni in their own words. 

Some said UOB MA program is one of the best things to start one’s career and I could not agree more. During my journey as a MA, I witnessed something very special about UOB; and not just about the bank itself, but about all the things and people surrounding it. One of the very tangible manifestations is that we are always given the route in which we can learn something. And through the program, generations of MAs had transformed themselves into outstanding people and leaders like only few places can be seen. And UOB MA Program definitely is a solid starting point for fresh graduates to become future business leaders.

The UOB Management Associate Programme is the bridge between fresh graduates and working life. The training, regional exposure and job rotations empowered me to explore my strengths and discover the right type of work for me. I also made new friends from different countries, which was a nice bonus.

As a part of the MA program, I will always be pushed and there is never a dull moment. I feel like I am truly part of something big and making a true impact for the bank. I have a lot of responsibilities since I am involved in many projects. UOB MA is a great journey for me to grow successfully in the future. It is not just about the opportunities that I have been given but also about the networking/connection among the people that I have worked with.
