The customised ten-day Maybank FutureReady Certification Course will be held at NYP where over 300 Maybank Singapore employees are set to complete the course in batches over two years. The courses tackle key areas like data analytics, design thinking and cybersecurity.

The first intake of Maybank employees began their lessons in late March, and will take weekly lessons over 10 weeks to complete the course, receiving certification for their newly-honed skills in end May.

“We provide them time off work to immerse themselves in a classroom setting to pick up new skills in using data to help in decision making, human-centred design, cybersecurity and agile methodologies,” Dr John Lee, country CEO and CEO of Maybank Singapore said in a statement. “Employees who are at the forefront of digital transformation may look to switch or expand their roles within Maybank through this programme and by leveraging the Professional Conversion Programme.”
