Mid-career postgraduates aspiring for a career in banking can look right here. Whether you are looking to fast track your career in a dynamic world-class organisation or are thinking of making a dramatic career switch to the challenging world of banking, OCBC Post Graduate Management Associates Programme (PGMAP) is the answer.

Fundamental understanding of how the bank works

OCBC PGMAP is a structured training programme that spans 18 months.

In the first 8 weeks of orientation, you will learn about the businesses in OCBC Group, our purpose and values. You will be equipped with banking, compliance knowledge and soft skills training through our wide array of exciting learning channels.

The added opportunity to interact with nurturing mentors and senior bankers at multiple networking sessions helps broaden your perspectives and deepen your understanding of banking.


Hands-on experience
On-the-job learning starts immediately when you are placed in a real role under the supervision of your manager. The hands-on experience is complemented by specific rotations to related job units to better understand the different functions.

Expect learning to be steep and you will need to be highly self-driven, proactive, resourceful and resilient.

Your leadership skills will also be honed when you undergo a carefully designed PGMA Leadership offsite programme that takes you through a journey of self-discovery and peer-to-peer learning.


Excellent mentorship

Learning through others can be one of the most significant ways of advancing in your journey. You will therefore be assigned a mentor who is also a senior manager in OCBC.

You can fully leverage on their valuable knowledge, learn from their experience and perspectives to help you complete the programme successfully. This mentoring relationship is driven by you and it is up to you to make the most out of it.
