I find that Financial Informatics focuses more on risk management and other financial stuffs. On the other hand, Business Informatics is more of general business from accounting to marketing and with a combination of IT skills. Both will study IT though.

From the site description it seems they are more innovative and require a lot of mathematical learning. IT school is probably mostly programming based.

I see that they cover quite a wide range, from database systems to graphic design too.

I see they learn their fair share of programming and data analysis too. In TP they would've been in IT school for sure. Path to uni is quite good too, you can pick the Computer Science route or the 3D Design and animating route.

Is it easy to find a job in any of those fields then with just the dip?

that's tricky, it depends on in depth the course goes in either of the subjects. but to progress in either careers a degree is absolutely necessary, as it is for many other fields.

Re: Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP) discussion thread!

There is another media course in engineering sch, Telematics & Media Technology. I wonder why it's not part of IT also? And does anyone know what exactly it teaches in regards to media?

Although the course title has the word "media" in it, it actually has much more to do with the technology. You will be learning mostly engineering science and computing technology. I think they only touch on media for one of the electives.

The career paths of that course is incredibly diverse; you can be R&D Professional, Business Solutions Developer, Telematics System Specialist etc.

If you are looking to go the media path there is Bachelor of Information Engineering & Media at NTU for you to pursue a degree.

Wow just realized nyp has a School of Interactive & Digital Media. Seems awesome to have a seperate school from IT that focuses purely on media.

I know their Animation school is very good. They won 1st prize for best film school at Lyon Asian Film Festival back in 08.

Yep I would recommend NYP if you are pursuing animation/media courses. I heard you will get taught and learn from industry specialists that hail from Pixar, Disney, Lucasfilm, and Weta Workshop etc.

Re: Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP) discussion thread!

How about Visual Effects? It seems a lot smaller in scale than animation as it focuses only on one aspect of film-making, and I fear the market is very small.

Visual effects is something the govt had been aggressively trying to push some time ago. Seems to have simmered down now...I would say only take it if you have a strong interest, and learn basic film making skills on your own.

Although the industry here is quite small I feel in turn, it results in the standard of 3d animation not being very good...so I guess it won't be hard to do well in the business?

I believe quality in 3d is quite heavily dependent on the tech at hand. This is why it is hard to produce good quality short films with school computers, particularly with such a short space of time.

I think they are best in creativity-oriented courses such as design, architecture, music and arts.
