With high ambitions, NUS graduates power towards career success

Navigating the ever-evolving landscape of professional opportunities can be both exhilarating and daunting. Yet, recent NUS graduates, most of them from the Class of 2023, have secured exciting careers, armed with a diverse skill set honed through a rigorous interdisciplinary and experiential NUS education, and future-ready life skills.

Interdisciplinary education opens doors to many career pathways

The strong foundation that Estelle Ho Jia Hui, NUS Business School graduate and Valedictorian for the Class of 2023, acquired during her course of study opened doors to a variety of career options upon graduation. Armed with a Real Estate degree, she is now an Associate Product Specialist in the Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) team at Mastercard.

In her current role, Estelle develops go-to-market strategies for customers in Asia Pacific to accelerate their corporate sustainability goals through Mastercard’s ESG products. She also works on product enhancements to drive product adoption, collaborating with diverse functional teams to enhance the value proposition of the products.

“The foundation of skills I acquired in my time at NUS opened doors to a variety of career options upon graduation. For instance, I learned project management skills for land development and building lifecycles in Real Estate studies, which I now apply to managing product roadmaps and formulating go-to market strategies at Mastercard,” said Estelle.

During her undergraduate years, Estelle completed multiple internships at Shopee, Changi Airport Group, Enterprise Singapore and Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore. She also actively engaged in discussions with her career advisors and sought to upskill herself through workshops conducted by BIZCareers, the NUS Business School’s careers centre.

“I acquired stakeholder management and communication skills from internships, mentors, and BIZCareers workshops that help me to navigate challenges and drive impactful change with our customers at Mastercard,” she added.
