Erm I-Bankers don't earn so little.

It's more like 8k a month.

Also, the market rate for fresh associates in a law firm is 4.5k

May I know what kinda Management Consultancy firm is that? I think 5k is more towards the higher end of the spectrum.

I'd think that 5k is about average for a MC firm.

i heard maritime is doing relatively well. with sgp port being internationally recognised and successful.

so will grads from ntu's recently introduced maritime studies with biz major degree be well paid?

compared to bankers and chem engineers? will working in a maritime sector pales more or on the same par.

unless you are doing high profile jobs like ship/bunker broking, your starting pay would be faaaar from bankers and chem eng.

'Singapore Management University reports that last year's graduates' average starting pay was $3,040. The top 20 per cent got $5,600 on average. This implies that the remaining 80 per cent got an average starting pay of about $2,400. This is just about the $2,350 starting salary for graduates with a pass degree entering the civil service.'

Don't be shortsighted - study something that will give you a long term competitive advantage. Science students can do libberal arts subjects whereas the reverse is not possible.
