So what should SIM put down on their CV instead of LSE?

The people who went to study at the real LSE earn the right to wear that brand. And part of the reason they went through the process of getting the LSE brand is that they can distinguish themselves when it comes to employment.

These SIM graduates we're mentioning are thieves who stole the brand and wear it on their Linkedin.
not all. i graduated from sim uol few years ago. on my linkedin and cv i made it clear that i graduated from a distant learning prog. i don't see any shame in telling the truth. It's more about what and how would i improve myself to level the playing field with local grads. let's face it, in terms of curriculum, the local grads have it harder than us. I'm not sucking up to them but this is the truth.

that being said, it doesn't mean sim uol = shitty job forever. It depends how you carry yourself and survive in the corporate world. i'm not in the FO or any glorious jobs taking home 20k each month, but probably doing abv average if i were to compare with my peers in the same age bracket (still within the banking domain).

But that doesn't mean anything, nothing to boast about. SIM is a DL provider. Full stop. Instead of trying so hard to convince yourself and others, why don't you improve on yourself, go out to the corporate world and show what you've got. I'm a pretty old school fella with a old school thinking. If you got substance, be it interpersonal skills or prodigy in this and that, prove to your colleagues, friends and family. I personally know a mid 30s hokkien speaking trader armed with only an ACCA cert + higher NITEC and got featured in reuters 3 years ago.


Though, bearing in mind that 90% of the posts here are probably from trolls. lulz

fellow LSE here.

do i get annoyed when i hear about this? nope. why should i be?

i just find it funny when some guy in settlements will msg me if im from LSE, and if i've ever did a course under mr xxx.

on my good days, i will just tell him that we address our lecturers as profs, not mr xxx, and no, there are hardly ever prof tans/sohs/lees in LSE.

on my bad days... i just try to ignore and laugh at the nonsense. live and let live guys. no need for so much hatred.

but it is exactly ppl like you who then goes on as inspiration for SIMians. for them to tell their friends 'see? SIM also can make it big' (a misunderstanding on their part of course).

Looks like the SIMians have thick skins to get over the embarrassment at being found out.

???

what did i say to make you come to this conclusion?

im merely saying that as a bona fide graduate from LSE, i dont give 2 hoots about what they claim - simply because the free market usually corrects that, i.e you wont find a sim person in investment banking/trading/coverage.
