UOB-SMU Asian Enterprise Institute

The UOB-SMU Asian Enterprise Institute (UOB-SMU AEI) is a recommitment in the partnership between UOB, SMU and other local enterprises. It is fully dedicated in providing highly subsidised consulting projects which are implementable by SMU students under the guidance of seasoned industry professionals.

SME Consulting Programme (SCP)

The SME Consulting Programme (SCP) and SME Consulting Programme Plus (SCP+) are the Institute’s principal initiative. It is a programme where SMU students embark on business consultancy projects (no correlations to any academic requirements) initiated by local enterprises. Interested enterprises can engage the student consultants in various areas such as brand audit, customer satisfaction, market research, business planning, etc.

Our student consultants, under the guidance of an experienced project advisor, usually a subject matter expert or an industry practitioner, will devote a period of 16-20 weeks to work on the approved project. Students engaging in these projects have had strong academic grounding and interest in the area they are consulting. This is where they pick up hands-on experiences that will equip them for the real world.

Local enterprises who would like to be involved with UOB-SMU AEI by providing opportunities for SMU students to work with them, may apply to do so. If you are interested in being part of the programme, click the following links to find out more.
