"Having worked in the financial services industry for a while, I find this programme very relevant as it not only focuses on core skills required in banking technology and operations but also provides participants with a good mix of general and financial management skills. The faculty members delivering the courses are also able to engage us interactively. This active participation allows us to relate theoretical and practical aspect of the courses better. "
"The course projects also challenges us to think beyond what we have learnt and this practical approach further enhances our learning. The series of MITB seminars, delivered by industry experts, allow us to gain further insight into the various financial services domains. It also provided us with the opportunity to network with senior management from within the financial services industry. "
"I believe in "investing in learning" and would encourage those who are seeking to further their career in banking technology and operations to seriously consider this programme. "

"Being an IT professional in the Financial Services Industry without a thorough understanding and knowledge of Banking and Financial operations and technology is incomplete for one to excel. "

"Strolling a term ahead, MITB was glossy to navigate and professors covered the subjects in depth. We had a great team and made terrific case presentations, I have certainly benefited by the rigor I had to go through. The knowledge taken away from course was very satisfactory as it explained me the need to analyse the kinds of situations we encounter and forced me through thinking process from each of those experiences. I am hoping to utilise this course to refine myself as an entrepreneur while looking forward to unravel the mystic world of financial negotiations. "

The professors are very energetic, interactive and the curriculum conducted stimulates our thinking. I am thankful to all at SMU for arranging the very engaging and interesting networking sessions with industry experts. "

"The journey towards a Masters of IT in business is an engaging one. We had the opportunities to meet industry veterans and learnt aspects of business, accounting and management particularly in the areas of banking and finance. The training is rigorous and the interactions with course mates from different sectors of the industry enhanced my learning experience and further fueled my interest in the field. An IT professional is incomplete unless he also becomes competent in the domain that he functions in. The Masters of IT in business is well positioned to bridge that gap between business and technology. "

These has provided me with a strong foundation and competitive advantage to advance in my career. "
