AIM is a pioneer in management education replicating the MBA case method teaching from Harvard Business School. Even though AIM based in Manila, however its almost 50,000 strong alumni spread world-wide. It was the first private management education institution to partner with the World Bank for establishment of the Global Distance Learning Center. Its corporate alliances and networks also extend throughout Asia and across the globe. As it turns 50 in 2018, AIM has embarked on a new chapter in its history by adopting a new logo that better represents its emerging dynamism, moving onward and upwards into the future paving a new path of program management innovation and expansion.

USIM Chairperson, Professor Tan Sri Dato’ Dzulkifli Abdul Razak received invite from AIM President & Dean, Dr. Jikyeong Kang to visit AIM in Manila. SLI is making arrangement to realize this visit when Tan Sri attends the Association of Southeast Asian Institutions of Higher Learning (ASAIH) International Graduate Students Multidisciplinary Research Conference at University of the Philippines on October 25-26, 2017.
