YEAR 2

FINAL MANAGEMENT PROJECT

The second year of the program is dedicated to the Final Management Project, a major piece of detailed research on a business related topic. It is divided into 2 parts: Project Proposal and Final Management Project (FMP).

Project Proposal

The Proposal is the key roadmap to guide and direct the main Final Management Project. It provides a clear structure of the future project and indicates the key approaches, methodologies, sources and resources that will be used. The timeframe to complete the proposal is 1 month and the key aims, objectives, methods and approaches for the FMP must be clearly and coherently presented in the final proposal document (2,000 words).

If students choose the professional track, their proposal exposes the input of their professional experience into the FMP.

Final Management Project (FMP)

The FMP is either applied or theoretical research project (15,000 words) that can be completed at a distance and in parallel with full-time employment or an approved internship. Students are encouraged to choose a subject related to their future career.

During their FMP, students will be supervised by an assigned tutor. Regular, scheduled contact with the tutor is required and milestone checks and evaluations are performed for each progressive chapter and stage of completion.

There are two tracks for the FMP: professional track where one will base the FMP upon a professional experience; and the academic track where one does not have professional experience, will be purely academic.

Professional Track

Students must base their FMP on professional experience and complete in parallel with an approved internship (min. 10 weeks to max. 26 weeks) or full-time employment (temporary or permanent employment contract).

International students must abide by the respective country’s regulatory requirements before commencing their FMP.

Academic Track

Students who do not base their FMP on professional experience must address a particular research question/hypothesis or knowledge gap in the field of their study. The research question/hypothesis should be business orientated and international in context.

International student must abide by the respective country’s regulatory requirements before commencing on their FMP.  Those who choose to complete their FMP in Singapore must do so at SIM on-campus and within 6 months from conclusion of project proposal.
