About Our Logo

In our logo, singular shapes come together to create creative composites, just as how SIM combines distinctive offerings into comprehensive experiences. It reflects how we have built a stronger, more cohesive SIM brand from the sum of its parts. The various components represent our promise, aspirations, and offerings as a lifelong learning institution.

From Singapore to the world

The red within our logo signifies our pride in being born, bred, and based in the little red dot, while the blue represents us reaching out to the world’s learners as we accelerate into the future. 

The circles represent the well-rounded global curriculum and holistic learning approach provided by SIM Global Education.

The triangles represent new horizons and fresh aspirations. Learners (depicted by the dot) can go higher and further in their pursuits by upskilling with SIM Professional Development.

Bridging enterprise learning and corporate excellence

The overlapping triangles depict the collaboration between businesses ready for transformation and a future-ready education institution at SIM Enterprise Learning.
