I remember heading over to the SIM GE career fair and discovering a plethora of new careers I never even knew existed. This opened my eyes and gave me further insight as to what I wanted to do in the future. I am also currently in the UB Student Council under the Events department. I really enjoy my time being in the council as the members are like a close-knitted family and the council has made my school life much more vibrant. As a council, we plan and execute events for the school, training new leaders and shaping the leaders of the future workforce. When we are not doing any council work, I can consult my seniors for help with homework while helping my juniors.
During the summer of my first year in the University of London International Programmes, I joined the Analyst Training Programme run by retired experts in the financial industry. The programme helped me build a strong foundation in doing analytical work, be it in the field of finance or economics. Building on this, I participated in the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Institute Research Challenge where my team won the school round and was selected to represent SIM GE in the national round against other universities. The competition helped me to learn first-hand from industry mentors how to properly conduct research, analyse the data, present them in an engaging report and share them through an impactful presentation. All of these opportunities led me to secure an internship at J.P. Morgan as a Summer Analyst during the summer of my second year where my career plans are now well on their way.
I decided to come to SIM GE after hearing about the university from my seniors back home who’ve studied there. It was also my goal to pursue my studies at LSE and I felt that pursuing the programme at SIM-UOL BSc (Hons) in Business would place me on the right track to accomplish this goal.
I am very fortunate to be sitting in a classroom with some of the best performers in the entire world. The modules I did at SIM have been helpful. Without this foundation it would have been hard to do well here. I've also been in touch with professors at SIM whenever I needed help. So, I cannot thank SIM enough for the experiences and opportunities I’ve been given.
The classes here at SIM are interactive and open to discussions. There is relatively lower emphasis on traditional exams and increased focus on acquiring real world skills like giving presentations, working in groups, doing projects and case studies etc.
The experiences I have gained by conducting business competitions, meeting business owners from different fields and interacting with peer entrepreneurs has given me an edge in the real world.
SIM is the best private university in Singapore. Studying at SIM makes it easier to find a job, especially when compared to other private universities in Singapore.
SIM GE has provided a great platform for my education and for me to be in touch with people from all over the world. I thank SIM GE for providing an inviting learning environment and facilities. Great for students.
I love everything about Singapore. Most of my friends are local people. I think local people are the best. And I love it so much.
SIM offered a good learning environment,advanced facilities and a world village culture that embraced diversity and open-mindedness,along with good opportunities to learn teamwork and appreciate different cultures.
As a foreign student, every moment in SIM GE is an international experience. I served as an Executive Committee member of SIM Investment and Networking Club (INC) where I organised a boot camp for other students, and took part in the Analyst Training Program (ATP) with Citibank to sharpen my analytical skills and gain real world experience.
Studying here has provided me with great opportunities to form rich cultural experiences. I am now able to think out of the box and am ready for all sorts for working environments in the future.
Being an Executive Committee member of SIM Global Education Student Representative, I am given many opportunities to experience new activities and lead my peers.
