Singapore Institute of Management
Founded in 1964, the Singapore Institute of Management (SIM) is one of Singapore’s oldest and finest private education organizations. SIM offers the widest range of high-quality academic programs in Singapore through its partnerships with established international universities in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, and Switzerland. With an enrollment exceeding 20,000, SIM Global Education offers more than 50 academic programs at the undergraduate, graduate, diploma, and certificate levels. As an independent, not-for-profit, professional membership organization, SIM boasts a strong network of about 27,000 individual and corporate members, including SIM students.
UB was the first American university to establish a full-time US undergraduate branch campus in Singapore, located on the campus of SIM. The UB program currently offers undergraduate degrees in Business Administration, Communication, Economics, International Trade, Psychology, and Sociology. The enrollment in UB's programs in Singapore currently exceeds 1,500 students.
The semester program will be located at the main campus of the Singapore Institute of Management (SIM), where UB currently offers undergraduate degrees in Business Administration, Communication, Economics, Psychology, and Sociology. Students will be able to choose courses from the UB undergraduate degree programs offered at SIM. These are all UB courses so they will count exactly the same toward degree requirements as courses taken on the UB campus in Buffalo. Students are expected to take 15 credits for the semester.
