Default Fresh grad advice needed

Hi. I am a graduating mech engineering student from NTU and I have been offered the following:

1) Logistics and Ops MA program in a MNC (not related to my field)
2) DBS MA program

Which one should I opt for and which will give me better prospects? Or should I find a job that is related to my degree since its my first job?

Thanks all for any advice!

Personally I'll choose this. I think the opportunities are better.

Hey thanks for the constructive feedback. Why would you think the opportunities are better compared to a bank MA program which is much more popular?

Im pretty sure both have their own advantages. it just boils down to which industry you prefer.
