I did my undergrad at NUS, and Masters at SIM.
As an employer, I find that grads from SIM-UOL are as good as those from NUS/NTU/SMU. The question has to do with job fit.

Where I am in fund management, some roles just suit local unis better because they have education that helps in those roles. Like Quant, Market Risk etc.
But most other roles that do not need specialised knowledge are fair game, and what really matters is that you leave a good impression and form a good connection with the hiring manager.

I guess it depends on a multitude of factors.

If the job is not particularly intensive or doesn't require the brightest person around, I would take an SIM chiobu too. If SIM not chiobu, would rather go for the NUS/NTU/SMU/SUTD candidate unless SIM was available at a huge discount

Not OP, but I know who they are. BB ops probably took the traineeship role as relevant exp. If you are curious, the one in purple is strat analyst now and previously did uob traineeship. Go stalk yourself.

But then again, how common would this be for the average UOL grad? Seems like only the top few will get it.

For local U finance grad, going to BB ops is among the lowest in the list of career choices but here its being put on a pedestal.

Are you saying all local u finance grads hold high finance roles straight out of college? BB Ops pays on par or better than most roles that local uni biz grads typically get into (with the exception being high finance @ top shops, MBB/T2 consulting & mb strat/corp dev in big tech/unicorns). Median salary for NUS BBA / SMU Biz is ~4100-4200. BB Ops Grad Prog and ACN Strat starting is alr above that figure. Then again, no one here is comparing SIM-UOL to the 75th-99th percentile of local uni finance grads are we?

nobody comparing UOL to 75th-99th percentile of local U, but you are comparing top 10th percentile with 50th percentile of local U (which in the context is BB ops). see the difference?

Top 10% is 90th percentile.

You seems confused with the terminology.
