Hmm, if ur gpa is above 3.2/3.3, shud be safe...?


What SIS offered is far from what it promised.

From an existing student.
Mind to explain why? There are lots of potential students here.. Pls enlighten us before we decide to go that school.. lols

I think GPA not very important in SMU. Interview is more important. I was rejected twice; NYP Dip in IT, GPA 3.50.

This tuesday will be my third interview.

well.. for e first qn, in SIS we are mainly taught java in year 1. i went into sis without any programming background. i'm surviving. you might have some problems with java initially. but, if u are hardworking enough, you should be alright.

i must say, sis dropout rate is pretty high. do a google search and you will know what i mean. you definitely must be able to take the stress from projects etc.. and of course, equipped with good time management skills. besides that, i think smu is a good environment.

SIS has the highest dropout rate in the entire SMU, so if your interest isn't there, do reconsider.

Also, many came to SIS with the thought of a backdoor entry to their desired degree programme, e.g. accountancy, business management. You will not be allowed to switch your degree programme once you are in SIS. Instead, you will be encouraged to take on a second major, if you are good enough, a double degree. In fact, a second major is compulsory for all SIS students and you will probably be asked to have a face-to-face meeting with the Dean if you insist on not taking a second major.

Anyways, if you are prepared to come into SMU, you'll need formal wear + blazer too.

There will be tons of formal presentations. So it's a start.

In terms of salary, graduates from SMU's Information Systems Management course earned the highest mean monthly salary of about S$3,450.
Don't know how accurate this is but with these kind of survey results, expect competition to be hot again as SMU applications have yet to close. Good luck to all those applying or shortlisted for interview!
