That's entirely up to the employer to decide, but a rational, informed employer probably should treat them the same, other things being equal.

You ought to be truthful in representing yourself, always. On your C.V., put something like this:

Bachelor's degree, 2013, Singapore Institute of Management University (now Singapore University of Social Sciences)

and that'll be fine.

Colleges and universities rename themselves fairly often. For example, here's what a sample Radcliffe College graduate from the early 1960s would probably put in her C.V.:

A.B., 1961, Radcliffe College

In this case, she might not put "(now part of Harvard University)" next to that C.V. entry because employers should know that important historical fact when assessing candidates. If they don't know, she probably doesn't want to work for such an ignorant employer. (Radcliffe and Harvard started awarding joint degrees in 1963, and over several years and decades, in phases, Radcliffe College disappeared as a separate entity.) So it's up to you whether you want to educate your prospective employer and others, but I would definitely list the name of the institution from which you received your degree, with the name of the institution as it existed when you got your degree. That's the truth, and then you can add truth if you feel it's merited and helpful.

I agree with the above.

The following would be a tempting alternative:

Bachelor's degree, 2013, Singapore University of Social Sciences (then, Singapore Institute of Management University)

But the first is more accurate and you should go with that.
