I was in the DBS MAP . Had completed my 2 year rotation. DBS MAP prior to 2019 was a fresh grad programme though they did take in 1-2 non fresh grads with less than 2-3 years working experience. And about half of the intake was from the DBS unicorn summer internship programme for penultimate students.

By the way, if y’all hadnt heard.
Dbs actually went against their word to the unicorns (summer management internship) of 2018 and decided at the last minute that all MA grads from 2019 onwards need to have 2-3 years of exp. so those that stood out during the internship were not fast tracked to Ma programme and were left feeling betrayed since it was promised that stellar unicorns will be fast tracked.
Ultimately, 0 unicorns got converted.

P.s I heard that the MA quality in prior batches were disappointing. Hence the overhaul.

So yeah, DBS Ma in the past did not require any years of exp.

You are very wrong with regards to the changes in DBS MAP this year. Go to the DBS MAP forum and read for yourself the reasons for the overhaul in the programme. It has nothing to do with the quality of prior batches of MAs.

Also the 2018 batch of unicorns were never promised conversion to MAP 2019 but rather GAP 2019 if they performed well. Prior to the unicorn prog 2018 decisions were already made to the changes for MAP 2019 and thus there was no mention of outstanding performers' conversion to MAP . Recruitment posters mentioned conversion to GAP and NOT MAP. Go and do your research.

There is 1 unicorn from the 2017 batch who was promised the MAP and for some reason he only grad this year. DBS kept to its promise and he will be joining the 2019 MAP.

With technology and easy access to the internet it is shocking that you can write such misleading and inaccurate post.

I am not the previous poster but for no matter the reasons, the deed has already been done. This will definately have a lasting negative impact on the trust current and potential candiates have towards Dbs

That is correct. I recall that the Unicorn 2018 was marketed as a fast track programme to the Ma programme (I applied). However, they changed it now to GA and SEED.

Hi. I am the previous poster.
Had a Friend in unicorn 2018 and she forwarded this to me.

From HR:

While we would like to extend our utmost sincere apologies for the delayed response, we would also like to take this opportunity to share with you the reasons behind it.

As part of the on-going efforts to improve the Management Associate Programme (MAP), feedback from both the business heads and MAs to understand how the MAP has benefited both sides have been compiled and taken into review, together with the renewed business strategies of the Bank every year.

To better cater to the building of top talent pipelines where young talents can be exposed to strategic positions and functions of the core businesses and value-add straightaway, a couple of changes were implemented for this incoming intake :

Candidates need to have 2-3 years’ of work experience at the point of application of MAP
The new revamped programme is a specialized track and rotation revolves within the preferred division, unlike the previous one, which is a general track.
3 Specialisation tracks offered : Consumer Banking Group, Corporate Banking Group (includes Institutional Banking Group, Treasury and Markets, and Capital Markets), Technology & Operations.
18 months development programme instead of 24 months

With the changes top-down, we seek your kind understanding that will not be able to place your candidacy in consideration for the next batch of MA intake.”

So pls do not claim that I am spreading false information.

The above did not mention about the quality of prior batches of MA. Neither did they promise unicorns conversion to MA.
