Students are evaluated through a combination of course work, project work and examinations. All students are required to complete a three-hour examination for each core and elective course.
Students who fail a core course will be asked to withdraw. A minimum average grade across all examinations must be achieved to be awarded the degree. Students who do not fulfil the minimum requirements of the degree may be considered for the award of the postgraduate Diploma in Enterprise Business Analytics.
Exemptions for examinations may be granted for up to four basic electives, provided students have at least the equivalent of an NUS or NTU 2nd Upper Class Honours degree, and have passed the same or similar subjects at either a Masters or PhD level.
Miscellaneous fees are typically levied on items that are either not covered or partially covered by tuition fee and grant/subsidy.

There is opportunity in Singapore for most areas of IT. What you learn in terms of IT 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 IT skills.
There are two main paths for advancement in IT - either technical or management. Technical means you continue to deepen your technical area in a domain (such as system architecture, or software engineering, etc.) and you become an expert in those areas. The other is management, where you can focus on project management, outsourcing, etc.
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, analytics, models 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 IT professional depends on the degree and your previous working experience. For fresh graduates with no work experience, the starting salary ranges from S$3,600 to S$3,800. Graduates with more than 3 years of work experience can expect a starting pay of S$4,000 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.
