Graduate and professional development
Ong Soo Ann, partner, Grant Thornton
We find University of London graduates who studied at Singapore Institute of Management a good fit for our firm, Grant Thornton. In a nutshell I would say - they are every employer’s dream of an employee. They possess a certain level of maturity, willing to learn, independent and street smart. Professionals need a full range of skills apart from technical proficiency.
Grant Thornton International is one of the world’s leading accounting and consulting firms, with more than 2,600 partners in over 100 countries. Foo Kon Tan Grant Thornton LLP is the Singapore member firm of Grant Thornton and currently employs 23 University of London graduates.
There are numerous benefits to sponsoring students on our postgraduate programmes or our Graduate Diplomas (equivalent to the final year of an undergraduate degree for graduates in another discipline).
Our programmes can be studied by distance learning, allowing our students to fit their studies around their working lives. Our students will not be required to take extended time away from the workplace, and they'll also be able to apply their new knowledge and ideas in your workplace from the start.
Sponsoring your staff for our programmes enables you to reward and motivate your high potential employees, while equipping them with the skills and knowledge to take your business forward.
Motivate employees. Gain knowledge
Our courses offer an invaluable way of gaining up-to-date technical and specialist knowledge and tools in your organisation. Our new Global MBA (launching 2017) aims to develop skills and knowledge into world-class business acumen.
Many of our postgraduate programmes offer students the opportunity to write a dissertation under expert supervision, based on issues in the student's place of work. This may act as a consultancy for your business, bringing fresh thinking and insights directly back into the workplace.
Our programmes are ideal for multinational employers. Managers can study wherever they are based, and if they are relocated within your organisation, they can still continue with their studies.
Our programmes allow multinational employers looking to develop the same competencies worldwide to deliver a consistent standard globally. Read more about our quality assurance procedures.
Continuing professional development
Individual modules of any of our courses can be taken for continuing professional development purposes.
These allow your staff to keep up to date with latest management strategies or technological developments or to gain specialist knowledge.
Successful study may count towards meeting CPD requirements of certain professional bodies.
