There is opportunity in Singapore in almost all industries which are rapidly working towards digital transformation and data analytics sits in the heart of it. What you learn in terms of analytics skills is not as important as what you do with it. It is the attitude and the ability to learn from mistakes, and to contribute back to the company that you work for that is likely to make more of a difference than specific analytics skills.
There are two main paths for advancement in analytics - either technical or managerial. Technical means you continue to deepen your technical area in a domain (Finance, Government, Manufacturing, Telecom, Transportation, Technology companies etc.) and you become an expert data scientist in those areas. The other is managerial, where you can focus on designing solutions for clients (internal or external) to achieve their organization goals in the areas of profit maximization, automation or digitization.
Our internship companies often tell us that if we can give them good students as interns, it is very likely they will get a job offer at the end of the internship.
As an MTech EBAC graduate, you will be prepared for specialist, expert and leadership roles in enterprise business analytics to create business value through strategic use of data, visualisation methods, modelling techniques and frontline tools.
The NUS-ISS Career Services Office helps students to match jobs based on their skills and experience. There will be bi-yearly Career Fairs held for students and graduates to network with employers. However, successful employment will depend on the employers.
The average starting salary of an analytics professional depends on the degree and your previous working experience. For fresh graduates with no work experience, the starting salary ranges from S$4,000 to S$4,500. Graduates with more than 3 years of work experience can expect a starting pay of S$6,000 and above.
The most important skill is to get the job done and be persistent. You need to be broad-based and the technology does not matter.
