For the second year running, graduates from the Singapore University of Technology and Design earned higher starting salaries than graduates of other Singapore universities.
The 2018 batch of SUTD graduates in full-time permanent positions earned a median gross monthly salary of $3,850.
About 11,200 graduates from the National University of Singapore, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore Management University, and the Singapore University of Social Sciences participated in a joint graduate employment survey earlier in February this year. Their median starting pay was $3,500.
Almost all of SUTD’s fresh graduates were employed within six months of completing their final examinations.
SUTD said top hiring sectors for its graduates included information and communications, finance and insurance, and scientific research and development.
