Horizon - The SIM GE e-Newsletter
Calling 110,000 alumni home to celebrate
Come celebrate SIM Homecoming on 11 July!

The Alumni Relations team is preparing to welcome five generations of alumni back to campus. No efforts have been spared, with student ‘phone-athon' ambassadors calling up thousands of alumni from as early as January. An all-alumni team is in charge of organising the event, in conjunction with SIM's 50th Anniversary celebrations.

As we celebrate, we have not forgotten our social mission to pay it forward. All event fees collected will be donated to beneficiaries of our SIM50 Corporate Social Responsibility initiative.

Fast-tracking futures with the new
Financial Training Centre
SIM GE marks another milestone with the opening of our Financial Training Centre, in collaboration with UOB Bullion and Futures (UOBBF). The centre will provide educational and training opportunities for diploma and undergraduate students studying banking and finance. This partnership is possibly the first in the financial industry and private education sector.

The Financial Training Centre replicates a real-world trading experience. It offers computer terminals loaded with financial data and stock market tickers with news headlines. Use of the centre will be integrated into the curriculum for a Diploma in Banking and Finance. The centre's resources are also available to students taking a Bachelor's degree in Accountancy, Economics or Finance.

Get an exclusive peek at our Financial Training Centre at SIM Homecoming.

His management philosophy?
Lead by example
Jeremy K H Gwee (left) is a well-known figure in the Asia-Pacific banking industry. The 58-year-old is Chief Operating Officer (COO) of HSBC Singapore, overseeing the bank's critical operations and IT infrastructure 24/7.

Early in his career, Jeremy realised that he did not have a clear sense of what management was. He felt that an MBA would fill this gap, on top of his Bachelor's degree. However, the MBAs offered by two local universities at the time did not appeal to him. "They gave me the back-to-school vibes, which was uncomfortable. The most suitable choice for working adults like me was SIM", recalled Jeremy.

Today, he is a career mentor to SIM GE students, helping them make the most of their learning journey, just as he did.

Learning for success and paying it forward

Starting with a Certificate from SIM 15 years ago, he went on to get a diploma and degree and recently graduated from SIM Professional Development's 'The Job of the Chief Executive' (JOCE) programme.

Today, Aziz gives back by offering internship and employment opportunities to SIM GE juniors. He also recently spoke at the graduation ceremony for the 41st cohort of the Diploma in Management Studies (DMS) programme. "My stint at SIM was extremely worthwhile. It gave me a better insight into my industry and it has improved how I conduct my business so far…we should always strive for better and higher qualifications no matter how old we are, or how long we have been working," he shared.
