Building Technical Competencies
To keep up with growing complexities of the industry, improve productivity, and maximise our potential, MAS encourages staff to continually develop and deepen their skills. Development opportunities include on-the-job and classroom training, scholarships for post-graduate studies, educational sponsorships, postings to complementary functions within MAS, and external secondments and attachments. The external secondments and attachments to supranational organisations, foreign central banks and supervisory authorities, as well as leading financial institutions provide our officers with valuable opportunities to acquire technical expertise, industry knowledge and best practices.

General Development Training
A broad suite of general development training programmes based on the Capacity, Leadership, Interpersonal skills, and Personal attributes (CLIP) framework are also offered to staff. These include a good range of courses that equip staff with written and verbal communication skills, personal effectiveness, and tools for effective engagement and leadership.

Functional Training
The MAS Academy offers technical programmes to build and strengthen functional competencies required across the organisation, as guided by MAS' Professional Requisites and Outcomes Framework (PROF). The types of training include classroom programmes, as well as talks by experienced professionals, industry experts and academics on emerging trends and areas of specialisation relevant to MAS.

MAS Diploma
The MAS Academy offers the MAS Diploma - a three-year flagship programme, which gives a broad-based education on MAS' key functions. The compulsory modules cover the foundations of central banking, financial regulation, supervision and development. Participants also choose elective modules covering a wide range of specialised topics depending on their interests. To attain the Diploma, they are also required to complete a final year project to contribute to the knowledge building and sharing culture within MAS. In FY 2015/16, there were 39 graduates from the programme.
