Working at SAP opens doors to an international career, where you will solve some of the world’s most complex business problems using leading edge technologies.

The SAP STAR Program in Singapore is a perfect way for you to gain real-world experience that is relevant to your studies before you graduate.

Our globally supported work integrated learning program provides students real-world experience at SAP, complementing tertiary studies by both guiding and preparing them for a future career. As a STAR Program participant, you will have the opportunity to rotate across several SAP business areas while receiving on-the-job and structured development and coaching from leaders in the technology and sales fields.

The program is suited to students studying in Singapore, who are able to work full-time during study breaks and two-days per week during the academic year to gain hands-on practical experience in today’s fast-paced technology industry.

At the end of the program and your studies, you will have the opportunity to secure a position within our globally recognized SAP Academy, or to be considered for other opportunities within the business.
