From Summer 2018 onwards, the Student Entrepreneur Internship (SEI) will allow students with a registered start-up or business to perform their mandatory 10-week (or more) internship in that start-up or business.

SEI will be offered annually to any students presently matriculated in any undergraduate degree programme at SMU, allowing students to have the opportunity to focus on nurturing their start-up. Additionally, successful applicants with viable projects or business activities will be strongly considered for IIE’s Business Innovations Generator and be matched with experienced mentors.

This programme is made possible via a joint tie-up between Dato’ Kho Hui Meng Career Centre (DKHMCC) and IIE.
