Just think, if you fell out of EMAP, it might be unlikely to join JP but I bet DBS is willing to interview an ex-JP.

I got another 2 offers from elite firms, buy-side, not in Singapore, ~15% higher than DBS package. Though I can expect fierce competition and painstaking struggling there, I decide to join. One thing is that you can't guarantee a better environment in DBS - from my interview experience, I highly doubt so.

Second point is, just as another MBA mentioned above, if they disdained to spend time on you during interviews, you can't expect more in the following EMAP track. Also, I prefer to work with people who share similar perspectives and experiences, aka understand the value of top MBA and international mobility.

I don't have any bias of DBS - as said it's my back up option and I didn't delve into it pretty much. Just from my experiences, it might not be the best value of your talents and ambition if you aim to, and are capable, to be a high achiever.
Donít keep thinking about $$ solely. There are many other perks. The company has many chio bu which as a staff get to piak piak with some of them.

Now all wfh sadly. No more office adventures.

It may seem low for mba & exp but I could not find a job elsewhere upon graduating.

I agreed with some other & too feel that it is not a good program. Decided to take it first & quit when there are other offers since there is no bond for this program.

Earn a few months salary is better than staying at home doing nothing.

Bro, isn't this lower than the $5,500 starting pay of the MAP? didn't 1 of the top MBAs here who rejected the offer commented that DBS' package was average but conditional on the first-year assessment? I don't think $5,300 is considered "average" for a top MBA.

either you're a troll or DBS is severely pay discriminating different MBA brands. in any case DBS seems to be a scrooge, which is surprising given that it's the biggest bank and one of the more prestigious banks in this region.
