New Delhi [India], November 10: In recent years, there has been a rising trend of Indian students seeking an overseas education, primarily because of the opportunity to receive quality education coupled with global exposure, to enhance career prospects, while experiencing a foreign culture. With a vision to help Indian students 'Learn for Life and Thrive for Life', the Singapore Institute of Management Global Education (SIM GE) is expanding its footprint in India by partnering with schools and Higher Education Institutes (HEIs) in India to provide its learners with transnational pathways and opportunities for international education. SIM GE has also set up Overseas Training Centres (OTCs) in India, to provide local students with learning opportunities that focus on being industry-focused, skills-based, and learner-centred. One of the OTCs in India was established in collaboration with Garodia International College (GIC), part of the Garodia Education Group, in Mumbai. Local learners can take on SIM's Diploma in Management Studies programme at the OTC.
One of the HEIs that SIM GE has partnered with is the Jagannath Institute of Management School (JIMS) in Delhi. The partnership paves the way for student exchanges to SIM and allows academic credit transfers for modules completed at SIM GE to fulfil the requirements of their local education programme.
SIM's education model also aligns with India's emphasis on the Education 4.0 revolution to promote inclusive learning and increase employability. Apart from learning experiences, SIM GE is known for its vibrant student community, career coaching support, and a wide range of networking activities to help one develop professionally and build soft skills. These alone are huge criteria for Indian students to look at SIM GE for their education. The campus also boasts of a conducive and holistic environment for students to learn in.
Recently, as part of a tour organised by the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI), SIM GE hosted a delegation of over 45 School Management Owners and Directors from India, where potential collaborations were also discussed.
Having attended the tour, Dr Rajesh Pankaj, Director and Head, Education and Skills, at FICCI said, "The visit of FICCI ARISE Delegation to SIM was an enriching experience. SIM's flexible framework to promote quality education will go a long way in effectively augmenting internationalisation of education and providing students a rich academic experience."
With more than 10 globally recognised university partners, SIM GE offers more than 120 academic programmes, ranging from diplomas and graduate diploma programmes to bachelor's and master's degree programmes with some of the world's most reputable universities from Australia, Europe, United Kingdom and the United States. Some of these university partners include the University at Buffalo, State University of New York, University of London, University of Birmingham, RMIT, University of Wollongong, and more. Students are also offered the opportunity to visit their university partners overseas as part of their exchange programme. Some courses popular among Indian students are Business Management, Accounting, and Finance, Data Sciences, Business Analytics, Computing, AI, Big Data, International Business, and Fashion, Design and Luxury Management.
SIM GE has been active in India for about 14 years and has churned out about 1,100 Indian alumni to date. They work closely with reputable local schools and institutions for their outreach events, such as the SIM GE Annual Educators Conference held in Singapore. The conference is attended by top Indian school career counsellors every year and is well-appreciated.
SIM GE is ideal for students looking for a quality education overseas but is still closer to home. Through its Transnational Education (TNE) model, SIM GE enables Indian students to leverage a single institution to access opportunities to pursue global education programmes from top-ranked universities.
SIM GE believes in taking a unique approach towards education so that learners are empowered to thrive throughout life. Their commitment ensures that the students learn and hone skills to remain relevant and futureproof. This dedication to building industry-related skills in students and preparing them for an evolving work culture makes SIM GE different from other institutions.
