The Singapore Institute of Management (Abbreviation: SIM; Chinese: 新加坡管理学院) is Singapore's largest and most comprehensive provider of private tertiary education and professional training. It was founded by the Singapore Economic Development Board in 1964. SIM offers diploma, undergraduate and postgraduate programmes as well as a variety of executive education courses. In 2005, SIM University, Singapore's first privately-funded local university, was established.
The SIM Group provides its core services through three educational brands: SIM University, SIM Global Education and SIM Professional Development.
SIM University (UniSIM) is the first privately-funded local university approved by the Ministry of Education to issue university degrees in a comprehensive range of disciplines. Its current enrolment is close to 10,000 students. Since July 2008, UniSIM’s programmes became even more accessible to adult learners as eligible Singaporeans and Permanent Residents taking UniSIM undergraduate programmes enjoy a government subsidy of 40% and 20% of tuition fees respectively. The university is expanding progressively to offer more programmes for its students.
