Our Heritage

Our quest for knowledge and learning begins…

In its early days of economic development, Singapore was in dire need of professional leadership and managerial know-how. In 1964, Dr Richard Eu Keng Mun was invited by the Economic Development Board (EDB) to spin off and grow its management training unit through the formation of a dedicated management institute. Against this backdrop, the Singapore Institute of Management (SIM) started operations with the social mission of advancing management excellence and developing manpower in support of Singapore’s growth. Since then, SIM has grown in tandem with Singapore, responding and innovating to meet manpower needs at different phases of its development. Today, we are a leading private institution for higher education and an embodiment of lifelong learning, reputed for our commitment to a high standard of professionalism and quality, relevance to industry and integrity.
