Besides gaining valuable experiences that can spice up your CV and earning stipend of S$3,000 per team, you can also log in the consulting projects done with the Institute as part of your 10-week internship requirements (Applicable for some schools only). Hence, this programme serves as an alternative for gaining some great internship experiences. All teams will be guided by a project advisor who will be your sounding board and mentor for the project. 

Starting 1 August 2023, your experience with our SME Consulting Programme (SCP) will now be officially documented in your 'Co-Curricular Transcript'! Besides documenting activities, this Transcript offers insights into the skillsets that you have developed in the process.​

With the learning outcomes established for our SCP, each is mapped to SMU’s Graduate Learning Outcomes (GLOs), each student consultant will now be assessed post-project, on each of the identified GLOs and awarded with one of these three levels of learning – Exposure, Integration and Transformation, with each level indicating a progressively more impactful experience.​

You will be assessed via direct observation by your Project Manager, feedback from your Project Advisor as well as your reflection to be shared during the Final Presentation. ​

This progression of documenting your SCP involvement on your Transcript not only concretises your effort and involvement but also showcases your personal growth and learning!​
