About UB/SIM

Connecting Students to a Bright Future

In UB's undergraduate programs at the Singapore Institute of Management—also known as UB/SIM—we prioritize academic growth, vibrant community, and a unique program culture. Our programs emphasize:
  • Interdisciplinary studies
  • Critical thinking
  • A global perspective
  • Robust communication skills
  • A strong sense of community

Here, students can build and strengthen the tools necessary for success in a diverse and dynamic world.

A Global Network

UB/SIM connects students to a tight-knit network of nearly 6,500 program alumni—and a global community of 280,000 UB alumni.


UB/SIM began in 2004, when 50 students enrolled in the Bachelor of Science (Business Administration) program. Since that modest beginning, the program has flourished and grown through the years.
