Our challenges on analytics front at Lenovo is oftentimes not to build the best analytics engine in the world, but to adopt these tools in business setting to drive impact. Having worked with MITB for 3 years, we found this is exactly what the students in the program are being nurtured. They not only have strong data science trainings, but more importantly they have the capabilities to implement these expertise into business settings.

At DBS Group Audit, we are always pushing the boundaries of what we can do with Data Analytics, and how it enables us to be Productive, Proactive, Predictive, and Preventive. So far, our 3 years collaboration with SMU MITB has been effective. Many of our key projects are done together with MITB students. Their strong data science foundation enables them to start work quickly. Most importantly, they have a positive attitude, and a strong desire to improve themselves!

Infineon has taken in students from multiple batches of the MITB program and it has been a productive experience. Internships connect organizations with universities and opens a gateway to the ecosystem. In my opinion, this is one of the most effective channel to establish a strong relationship between academia and industry. The MITB interns have given a new perspective to organizational challenges and bring fresh ideas. Being millennials, they are more exposed towards technology & information digitally available, and in turn, embrace emerging technical challenges confidently.

MITB consistently produces great analytics talent. The combination of technical and data storytelling skills are exactly what Banking needs.

Donald MACDONALD
Head, Group Customer Analytics & Decisioning
OCBC Bank

SMU students are able to quickly understand the problem and ask meaningful questions during the first few weeks. They work independently and engage with end users easily to find the best solutions for them. Their work is a major help in diverse projects throughout the company. We look forward to engaging with more students from the MITB program in the future.

Sigrid ROUAM
Formerly Head of Data Science
SGX (Jan 2019 – Dec 2019)

Some of our best recruits are from the SMU MITB program. They started as interns and most join us after graduation from the program. SMU’s MITB program attracts good professionals with excellent attitude and capabilities. They now form part of our strong foundation to develop solutions for real world problems and their “can-do” attitude motivate the rest of the team and help push the boundaries of what we offer. Their talent spread across data management and analytics and that flexibility contribute to our ability to assign tasks more effectively!

The key challenges surrounding analytics in healthcare range from having to integrate data from multiple sources, analyse unstructured data, understanding the business case through stakeholder engagement to translating the insights into application by healthcare teams. The students under the MITB programme are trained and mentored to apply their knowledge on real-world data and work collaboratively with business owners for adoption of insights generated with great professionalism! It has also been an enriching experience for me as I gained knowledge on analytics techniques through these collaborations!

CHOW Wai Leng
Deputy Director, Health Services Research
Changi General Hospital

SMU MITB has been our partner for internships and recruitment, giving us access to a good portfolio of analytics talents. Our experience with MITB students and alumni have been very positive as they possess a proactive learning attitude and inquisitive mindset to ask critical questions that help shape the solutions for healthcare challenges. More importantly, they have demonstrated the ability to apply their analytical foundations and contribute to real-world application in our healthcare projects.

Andy TA Wee An

IHiS Pte Ltd

SMU MITB students have the right blend of technical skills and business acumen in the Data and AI ecosystem. Interns working with us have been able to ramp up quickly and form a core part of our consulting and product teams. They are hard-working and exhibit the right attitude to perform well in the industry. The SMU MITB program is a good pipeline of talent for us, and we will continue to engage with SMU for the same.

Student Internship Testimonials

I am able to complete an analytics project end-to-end independently, i.e. from data cleaning, to data exploration, to data modeling, to results compilation and validation, to dashboard building.

Jean Chen

MITB (AI) Systems & Learning Instructor
Singapore Management University

Three things stood out the most in MITB: professors, internship, and the people in MITB. The internship was my second-best experience in MITB. I was assigned to SGX’s Fintech and Data team for a period of six months, and in these six months I have had the closest encounter with data. I picked up two different programming languages and began to understand Financial Markets. This internship experience, coupled with the courses taught in MITB, made things complete.
