Our Real-World Curriculum
The UniSIM School of Business brings the business world into the classroom and the students into the business world. Our curriculum fits the needs of the working adult, incorporating real-life experiences and knowledge. What would be an optional offering in other undergraduate programmes is often a core component of our Business school programmes.
Our real-world discussions and practice-oriented assignments are facilitated by our unique student cohort who is made up of working professionals from various industries in the private and public sectors.
The real-world curriculum is further enhanced through site visits and talks by invited speakers from the industry and academia. These are made possible through our close partnerships and collaborations with our industry partners. This close industry involvement aids in tailoring a learning experience that is closely tied to real-world business requirements.
Our Industry-Experienced Faculty
Our full-time faculty manages our programmes and develops the curriculum, ensuring that the knowledge and skills we impart to our students equip them for the business world of today and prepare them for the future.
Our programmes are supported by our experienced associate faculty from the various industries and academia. With their relevant professional working backgrounds, our associates are not only able to share their experiences; they also assist through the writing of business cases which are used in many of our courses.
In addition, the school actively conducts applied research to generate new knowledge. Our full-time faculty members frequently publish their research in journals, present their work at conferences and express their opinions in Singapore’s major media outlets.
"UniSIM is a fun and vibrant place to learn and share knowledge. The learning experience was realistic as the school strives to link knowledge and skills that were taught to real life working issues. The course structures are focused on developing strong foundation for business fundamentals; training our mind to think laterally, holistically and logically to handle work challenges in today’s rapidly changing business world.
The well-rounded programme enriched my knowledge and skills. It also helps me to excel in my work and to increase my opportunities for career advancement. The learning experience expanded my horizon and motivated me to strive beyond my self-imposed limitations. I have discovered my strengths and potential in areas that I had not been aware of. I have become wiser and have strengthened my analytical and observation skills. In addition, learning to view things from different perspectives has helped me to make and execute better decisions in work and in personal life." (2011)
