Celebrating 60 Years of Purpose at SIM

60 Years of SIM
Lifelong Learning,
Lifelong Thriving

SIM is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year, marking six decades of dedication to empowering and enabling individuals through learning and education. Established in 1964 in response to Singapore's call for skilled management professionals, SIM has evolved from offering short management courses to pioneering diploma programmes in the 70s and forging partnerships with overseas universities in the 80s. Throughout these years, our mission has remained steadfast: to help individuals become the best versions of themselves through learning, contributing to personal growth and societal advancement.

At SIM, we believe that education is a powerful equaliser, capable of transforming lives and socio-economic outcomes. Our commitment to social equity is reflected in our efforts to provide accessible educational pathways, scholarships and bursaries for academic success. We are driven by our purpose to enable everyone to maximise their potential, regardless of their background. This guiding principle shapes our decisions, actions, and values, ensuring that our mission is greater than any individual and is for the collective good of society.
