The Swiss Institute Of Management And Innovation Corporates With UK Based Awarding Organization Regulated OTHM
The Swiss Institute of Management and Innovation (SIMI) is an inclusive, innovative, transformative, and ambitious community with a strong sense of purpose and belonging. We are driven by accreditation and recognition. SIMI is internationally accredited and recognized across the world.
At the institutional level, SIMI is fully accredited by ASIC at the “Premier Institution” level. All of our academic programs are in full compliance with the European Qualification Framework (EQF) and National Quality Framework (NQF). This ensures all students that all SIMI programs and qualifications are accredited, thereby reassuring that SIMI graduates will have open access to employment and lifelong learning.
We are accredited not only by the accreditation bodies but also by the Kanton of Zug, Switzerland.
As an institution of higher learning, SIMI is partnered up with OTHM Qualifications, London Language Colledge, ATHE (Awards For Training Ang Higher Education), LRN (Learning Resource Network), QUALIFI, London Academy of Sciences, and the list is still expanding.
We offer programs and courses of all levels, from Bachelor to Doctorate. At the moment, we have partnered up with OTHM to deliver the UK-based qualifications. The partnership shows the understanding and how SIMI can easily meet the expectations of high-quality high education expected in the UK.
OTHM has a wide range of network of delivery centers globally to deliver the qualification in:
- Accounting and Finance;
- Business Management;
- Education and Training;
- Health and Social Care Management;
- Human Resource Management;
- Information Technology;
- Logistics and Supply Chain Management;
And more. To know more information, please visit OTHM’s website here.
At the program level, SIMI’s programs are recognized by the Regulated Qualification Framework (RQF) awarding bodies. RQF is one of the UK national qualifications systems, a formal education system under the national competency framework.
Like NQF and QCF, all degrees will be converted to “Levels” based on the difficulty and ability training programs provide. But unlike NQF and QCF (Qualifications and Credit Framework), RQF does not require learners to combine courses to get credit. Instead, they can accumulate credits from activities like internships, workplace learning, researching, etc. With the RQF system, all degrees will be evaluated based on COMPETENCY instead of KNOWLEDGE. This creates flexibility, agility, and efficiency for the UK training system.
For qualification based on the RQF, they will be accredited and recognized in the UK when they are recognized by Ofqual. Once recognized by Ofqual, the degree will then be valid, recognized, belonging to the UK national diploma system, and the qualifications will be converted to Level for easy mutual recognition worldwide.
