Who We Are 

Singapore Institute of Management (SIM)

The Singapore Institute of Management (SIM) is a leading provider of a diverse range of education pathways and professional training in Singapore. It was founded in 1964 as a not-for-profit management institute, a spin-off of the Economic Development Board. SIM accomplishes its mission of education and lifelong learning through four arms, each catering to a specific market segment of learners.

SIM Global Education

SIM Global Education (SIM GE) is the leading private education institution in Singapore. It offers more than 80 academic programmes ranging from diploma/graduate diploma courses to Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes with top ranking and reputable universities from United States, United Kingdom and Australia. With about 20,000 full-time and part-time students and adult learners from over 40 countries, SIM GE adopts a holistic learning approach to equip students with a global edge. Besides building their intellect and skills needed to thrive at the workplace, SIM GE hones the soft skills of students through a wide range of career development and student life activities, supported by a modern and culturally diverse campus environment.

SIM International Academy

SIM International Academy (SIM IA) offers Cambridge programmes developed and awarded by Cambridge International Examinations (CIE), United Kingdom, to students aged 12 and up. The curriculum of SIM IA is designed to focus on applied learning in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) as well as the Humanities. Taught by faculty experienced in local and international curricula, students are nurtured to become curious learners, community builders and creative leaders. Beyond academics, students’ learning experience is enriched through co-curricular activities, service-learning and boarding programmes.

SIM Professional Development

SIM Professional Development (SIM PD) offers a holistic and immersive professional learning experience for C-suite executives and PMEs to grow their skills through training and exposure to top global thinking and management best practices. Our executive programmes, business insights events and professional interest groups plug learners in more ways than one into an extensive learning network to stay versatile, innovative and market ready. Over 11,000 professionals have benefited annually from these programmes. In addition, SIM PD offers companies customised learning solutions that optimally meet their organisational and business needs.

Platform E

Platform E, SIM’s entrepreneurship centre, is more than an entrepreneurship programme, incubator or accelerator. It is Singapore’s most comprehensive entrepreneurship ecosystem that grows both the idea and the entrepreneur. It combines rigorous knowledge programmes with practical approaches to produce resilient entrepreneurial leaders with sustainable business plans. The programmes take place in a 2,300 square metres habitat and community conducive for building entrepreneurship. This co-working space is designed to immerse aspiring entrepreneurs in an environment where they can engage with like-minded people to germinate and cross-pollinate ideas, and test and arrive at solutions that will lead to business propositions.
