The MBA premium in Asia is simply not there compared to the US. Employers don't want to pay you money simply because you went to biz school. Hope people can come to terms with this. They are willing to make you an offer, but you have to go in and prove your worth before you get a pay rise.

Why would any company pay you 10k right off the bat?

btw, if you're doubting the relevance/credibility of tertiary education what are you doing here being concerned and commenting on DBS' postgraduate program?

The fact of the matter is: Those skills were more prized twenty years ago when not many had an education. These days anyone can learn them easily, even online! The barriers of entry to education have shifted as such.

In fact, I think even 6k to 8k is reasonable as most applicants are not from top-tier MBAs. If you are from a local uni MBA, what actually makes you better than an undergrad from those schools?

Not to mention the fact that the economy will continue to deteriorate, DBS doesn't actually need your fancy MBAs at all. During this time, they want techies to improve their systems, not business development people who do not have much business to do anyway.

This is the hard truth; and it is not limited to DBS. Even the big consulting firms have pushed back start dates, some others have rescinded offers.

You all need to get a good grounding in reality. No MBA employer owes you a 100k salary. In fact, this extends to every job, whether you have an MBA or PhD. Also do not forget that this is Asia; people do not give two hoots about an MBA. You prove your worth.
If they only want/need techies to improve their systems like what u said then why start what new EMAP program? Just directly hire CECAs can already what.

And while we’re at that we can also get the techies to do financial modeling and forecast project budgets, create go-to-market strategies for digibank in a new Indian city, and market their new digiPortfolio product here in SG!
