We may sponsor you for postgraduate studies after your undergraduate degree. The decision depends on a combination of factors such as your academic results, chosen field for further studies and your academic inclinations.

We strongly believe that you should make the most of your 4 years in university to gain a myriad of experiences that will prepare you well for the working world. The scholarship comes with an 8-week internship with MAS where you will be assigned a project in a specific department which will enable you to feel the pulse of the organisation. We are also very supportive of our scholars who bring their explorations beyond textbooks and their universities. From spending a term abroad and immersing in another culture, to interning with private sector organisations to gain exposure to the dynamic world of finance – we encourage our scholars to broaden their horizons.


Upon completing your undergraduate studies, you will be placed in one functional area within MAS, where you will receive comprehensive training and build greater depth of knowledge and skills. Job rotation is possible after two or three years of service in a specific department to provide you with a well-rounded career in MAS.

Application Process

If you wish to be considered in the provisional selection exercise, you should submit your application in September. You can submit your application using your preliminary examination results.
