July was an exciting month for the Singapore Institute of Management (SIM). Not only were new SIM-University of London students busy with their induction programme and continuing students off for their summer break, the Institute saw 31 students from seven different nationalities coming together for the International Summer Programme (ISP).

Aptly called ISP@SIM, the 4 – 22 July 2016 residential programme provided a six-fold experience through internationally focused, in-depth lectures and case-consulting projects by visiting businessmen and researchers: Mr Koichiro Kita, CEO of LbE Japan, and Dr Joseph Quarshie, CEO of Global Education Consults in Ghana.

Industry visits and community service projects developed the global skills of each participant. They truly had a personalized academic and cultural experience in the heart of one of the most dynamic cities in the world.

One of the highlights of Global Activities in the ISP@SIM was a record-breaking event for the Singapore Book of Records. ISP@SIM participants and student leaders formed their passions into art, breaking the record for the largest logo made of typography art. From career goals like “Become a policeman”, favorite hobbies such as music or sports, to inspirational phrases based on the students’ own values such as “Be happy no matter what”, students wrote to encourage themselves and to inspire others to find and pursue their passions.

Preparations for the record-breaking event started at the beginning of the programme, where students discussed their own passions and goals. With much effort and thought, the masterpiece was completed on the very last day of the ISP@SIM.

At the ISP@SIM participants’ graduation ceremony, the President of Singapore Book of Records, Mr Ong Eng Huat, attended and congratulated participants on their success in both completing the project, and also in inspiring themselves and others to foster their passion.

"The satisfaction derived from the sense of unity is one that will last long and holds the most meaning."

Lien Zhou Han, one of the student leaders involved in the record-breaking event, is a final year University of London BSc Business and Management student. He had this to say of this incredible feat: “Things may seem tough or even impossible in the beginning. You just have to persevere and push on. Eventually, your small steps taken will cumulate into something significant and profound. What I learnt is one for all, all for one. Teamwork isn’t really teamwork if only one person is done with his/her role. It is of utmost importance that everyone moves and strives together. The satisfaction derived from the sense of unity is one that will last long and holds the most meaning.”
