RMIT to assist in upskilling the Singaporean market

The Singapore Institute of Management (SIM) and RMIT Online have partnered to offer skills-based, industry-designed online education opportunities to the Singapore workforce. The partnership between SIM and RMIT Online strives to fast-track SIM’s digital initiative and offer more online learning in a post-COVID world.

SIM will offer a range of online courses from RMIT Online’s existing portfolio to help develop skills which have been identified as necessary for Singapore to remain competitive in increasingly digitised industries. The first suite of courses to be offered are in areas such as artificial intelligence, agile project management, digital marketing, cybersecurity and data analytics. Each course has been designed with industry partners such as IBM, Salesforce and AWS Educate, and are taught by senior industry mentors. Upon completion, learners will receive a digital credential, verified by industry partners and a world-leading institution.

RMIT Vice Chancellor and President Martin Bean CBE said the university had achieved great success in Australia with its industry-focused short courses and believes that these courses will create new opportunities for Singaporeans in the rapidly changing world of work.

“COVID-19 has rapidly changed the way people work, live and study. We know that new and returning students are looking for flexible, targeted and industry-focused learning options aimed at developing the most in demand skills,” Bean said.

“With COVID-19, online learning will be an important mode of learning. Our collaboration with RMIT Online offers yet another flexible pathway for PMETs in Singapore to build skills which are in demand by employers. Under SIM’s digital initiative, we will continue to provide short, micro-credentialed courses that help our learners build greater agility across industry segments and in their careers,” said Seah Chin Siong, President and Chief Executive Officer, SIM.
