Default List of Management Associate Programs

Hi guys, nowadays many SMEs and small coys put out management trainee programs to entice people, but I was wondering what are the more prestigious ones available. From looking at the threads here and my own research I can list down a few ROTATIONAL PROGRAMS which are available:

Visa Graduate Development Program
Unilever Future Leaders Program
GSK Future Leaders Program
Shell Graduate Program
Glencore Graduate Program
Citi MA Program
HSBC MA Program
DBS MA Program
UOB MA Program

For other local coys:
Singtel MA Program
Starhub
SGX

What are the other big ones out there?

I believe P&G and GE also have attractive graduate programs.

Microsoft as well but it's NOT MAP per se.

Thanks, for GE do you mean the GE Financial Management Program?

And for Microsoft the MACH Program?

What is the name for P&G's one?

I wouldn't classify programs from Glencore, Citi, Visa, DBS, UOB, Singtel, Starhub, SGX as "prestigious". They are decent in the sense that it is structured environment, provides job rotation and you generally graduate as some sort of "manager". These companies usually target top 10-30% quality of the cohort which is considered good, but definitely not prestigious per se.

Wait, Singtel and StarHub, I agree with you.

Citi, DBS and UOB typically have many 1st class honors students as their MAs (whom are definitely top 5% of cohort). You don't consider that prestigious or good enough?

Like I said they are good and generally attract good people. There certainly will be some FCH in these programs. Anyway academic grades is just 1 measurement of quality, there are many other facets to determine caliber. Many distinct programs look at far more than just class of honours.

I am just speaking from experience as a recruiter. Ask anyone experienced out there whether a UOB MAP can even remotely compare with a similar program from the likes of Shell, P&G, GE or some of the BB banks. There is a distinction between good & prestigious.

There is no wow factor being a DBS or UOB management trainee as compared to some of these other programs. Usually in order be considered prestigious it's got to be a global leader in a lucrative & influential industry.

It's just like NUS or SMU, yes standards are generally good and occasionally you will get some very bright students, but would anyone consider them prestigious? No. When you talk about prestigious university, people mean Harvard, Yale, Wharton, Oxbridge, Insead, CBS etc. Sames goes for companies.

Hi, thanks for your input. What other programs would you consider very prestigious?

ok, fair enough.

Would love to hear your take then... So you consider HSBC prestigious but not Citi?

What about Unilever, P&G, Shell and other mncs compared to BB grad programs (they don't have MAP)? I know the quality of BB grad programs and the people they take in aren't that good tbh- do note we are considering only MAP/grad programs so I reckon that leaves out FO jobs.

For those bulge bracket banks, the best applicants will be going for FO jobs like investment banking and trading. But for Unilever etc, I believe the best applicants will be headed for their rotational programs. Please correct me if I m wrong

For BB, there are also those who prefer MO roles for work-life balance. Not completely true to say that the best go for FO jobs though I get what you mean.

I like to know what a recruiter thinks as prestigious (or not) though.
