LOCAL GRAD ASK WHY STUDENTS FROM PRIVATE UNIVERSITIES EARN MORE

Local grad here, Currently working in a MNC in a software dev position. Just out to rant about software paygrades. Many would agree with me.

Why do my company like to hire from this school called Digipen, and why is it that they seem to fetch a hire salary than me?

After working on some projects together, I understand that they are as capable as us, with some being more outstanding than us, but how can their pay be justified purely based on their capabilities? Abilities aside, what about our uni rankings?

I dont even see digipen being anywhere near NTU in the uni rankings, so why pay them as much as us, or even higher? Is this fair? Then why work so hard and study everyday in poly to get to NTU? I had to fight for a near perfect GPA to enter NTU, whereas anyone with a laughable gpa can probably enter this unheard school (can i even call it that?) digipen.

I have colleagues from the 2 major universities (NTU/NUS), and a few others from the less prestigious private uni like SIM and unknown origins. After digging for their salaries, I was glad to find that my paygrade is higher than those from these less prestigious unis, but there is this outlier being digipen. Prior to entering the work force I have never even heard of this school. The name itself doesnt even sound like a university so how can they be fetching higher salary than us?

what made me type this post was that one even received a promotion before me, despite us joining the company on the same date.

It took us hard earned grades to get into NTU, and I assume anyone can just enter digipen easily. so why the disparity in paygrade?
