    Taking Successful
    Careers to the Next Level

                                              In today’s fast-paced,
                                              dynamic business landscape,
                                              what separates an outstanding
                                              manager from a merely good one?

A top executive is one who is able to
lead a team and communicate effectively
with other managers to resolve complex
problems across disciplines and achieve
desired results.

The Executive Master of Business
Administration (EMBA) program,
offered by University at Buffalo (UB),
The State University of New York in
conjunction	with	the	Singapore	Institute	
of Management (SIM), is a powerful tool
designed to boost the capabilities of high-
potential executives who wish to earn an
MBA while continuing to work full time.
For experienced professionals seeking
to optimize their qualifications and skill
sets, the EMBA is the ideal platform for
propelling careers to the next level.

CaseTrust for Education
We are proud to be certified under the
CaseTrust for Education scheme. This
scheme has been customised specifically
by CASE for the education industry in
Singapore. Aimed at enhancing the
confidence of students and their parents
in the quality of education in Singapore,
the scheme highlights schools that
possess the foundation for good quality
student welfare and business practices.

As required by the scheme, SIM will
enter into a student contract with our
students. The student contract lays out
the important terms and conditions
governing the relationship between the
student and SIM. We will honour all terms
and conditions spelt out in the student
contract and in all communication

Also a requirement of CaseTrust, we have
in place a Student Protection Scheme                           Refund Policy for Withdrawals
