DBS already provide a range of Springboard+ part-time programmes in areas of Fund Accounting, Big Data, RegTech, FinTech, Software Development, Web & Cloud Technologies and DevOps. These courses will run on a part-time basis in the evening.


In addition to the above courses, under Pillar One of the Human Capital Initiative (HCI), DBS is also offering full-time postgraduate programmes in areas of skills shortages and emerging technologies such as Digital Marketing, Aviation Finance, and Mobile Applications via graduate conversion courses.
