Uhm I wonder if I can still ask about the scholarship here??

Ah I got a call from the National Arts Gallery for an interview but I was wondering if my uni course would be unattractive to them. I'm going for NUS biz in the end and I'm wondering if a biz student is of value to the Art Gallery. Would they want someone who majors in industrial design or design related courses?

Not at all. Running an art gallery of this scale is not a simple task and would require business knowledge too. Someone from an design-related background might not be that well-prepared to managed finances, handle HR matters, prepare marketing plans etc...

Actually, you need a Master's to manage an art gallery. It is okay to pursue a Bachelor's in business first but eventually, you must have a Master's.

In any case, you must already have a passion in the arts to get the scholarship. All the best

That's totally not true. Many of them in singapore do not have a masters. Though, if you wish to do a masters, NHB/NAC is very generous with scholarships. Note - arts management is a different track from curatorialship.

Default Sgis - kpmg

Has anyone been called up for kpmg's interview next thur? Any seniors can shed some light on the interview process because I was told that it would last 4 hours :O and I missed KPMG's talk at the SGIS scholarship fair previously so I dont really have an idea how the selection process is going to be like. Is it true that there are four rounds of interviews???
