Our Core Values
The SIM Group offers its educational and training services through four brands:
SIM Global Education (SIM GE) is the leading private educational institution in Singapore.

Drawing about 20,000 fulltime and part-time students and adult learners from over 40 countries, SIM GE adopts a holistic learning approach to equip students with a global edge. Besides building their intellect and skills needed to thrive at the workplace, SIM GE hones the soft skills of students through a wide range of career development and student life activities, amid a culturally diverse campus environment.
SIM International Academy (SIM IA), SIM’s new education arm, offers the Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) Years 7 to 10 to students aged 12 to 16. This programme is developed and awarded by Cambridge International Examinations, United Kingdom. The curriculum of SIM IA is designed to focus on applied learning in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) as well as the social sciences.

Platform E is more than an entrepreneurship programme, or an incubator or accelerator. It is Singapore’s most comprehensive entrepreneurship ecosystem that grows both the idea and the entrepreneur. It combines rigorous knowledge programmes with practical approaches to produce resilient entrepreneurial leaders with viable business plans. The programmes take place in a habitat and community conducive for building entrepreneurship. The 25,000 square feet co-working space is designed to immerse aspiring entrepreneurs in an environment where they can engage with likeminded people to germinate and cross-pollinate ideas, and test and arrive at solutions that will lead to business propositions.
