The UOB Management Associate Programme is designed to nurture our next generation of leaders across the region. To be a UOB Management Associate, you will be someone with a drive for excellence, an entrepreneurial spirit and a strong sense of ethics. Over a period of 18 months, you will undergo an accelerated induction experience to fast-track your career in the banking industry. This is where you will learn and appreciate different aspects of the business, within one of our business segments or corporate functions.
You will take on significant responsibilities right from the beginning, and resolve real-life, real-time challenges along the way. In short, your performance will contribute to our success. You will achieve this as you build up a wide range of core competencies and technical skills through an accelerated and robust curriculum. This comprises structured classroom training on banking and the business of UOB. You will undergo job rotations that cover areas such as customer engagement and governance and control. You will also undertake a strategic corporate project where you will join a team to develop, recommend and execute Bank-wide initiatives, drive change and advance our growth in the region.
The UOB Management Associate Programme is designed to inculcate a regional mindset. There are many invaluable opportunities for regional exposure, where you can gain new perspectives and knowledge as you network and work with colleagues from the region. These include regional rotation for high-performing Management Associates and participation in cross-border and cross-functional regional projects. Through these platforms, you will get to meet fellow Management Associates and gain insights from the UOB leadership team.
You will receive strong support and guidance throughout your career with UOB. This starts with being assigned a Programme Manager, a Senior Manager as your mentor and a senior UOB Management Associate buddy. This support system lets you seek informal feedback on your professional and personal development, and prepares you for the successful completion of the programme.
There are ample opportunities to stretch your capabilities and potential with UOB. You will gain in-depth knowledge of the banking industry and access to the UOB leadership team. At the same time, you will enhance and expand your skill set to get ready for new challenges through our comprehensive suite of training programmes.
