MAs will undergo intensive training in the business units of their choice, which will enable them to develop technical skills and build up their banking knowledge in areas such as product and technology innovation, risk management and compliance.

Harry Loh, CEO of UOB Vietnam, said: “This is the first year we have launched the UOB Management Associate Program in Vietnam and it reflects our long-term commitment to nurture the future leaders of the local banking and finance industry. UOB has a strong franchise across the region, which will provide great learning opportunities for the MAs as they work and interact with their counterparts in other countries and appreciate the different aspects of the business.”

Under the program, MAs will spend most of their time in the department of their choice to ensure they have the opportunity to deepen knowledge in their areas of interest and aspiration. They will also expand their banking knowledge through rotational shifts in other departments at UOB.

Applicants to the MA Program should have a drive for excellence and share UOB’s core values of being honorable, enterprising, united and committed. They also need to hold a bachelor’s degree in any discipline with a grade point average of 3.0 and above, have no more than two years of work experience and demonstrate a strong track record of leadership such as through extra-curricular activities.

Applications for the program will remain open until March 30, 2021 and can be done online at https://www.uob.com.vn/about-en/career/management-associate.page.
