The Asian Institute of Management (AIM) is a management school and research institution in Makati, the Philippines. Established in partnership with Harvard Business School,[1] it is one of the few business schools in Asia to be internationally accredited with the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).[2] Stephen H. Fuller of the Harvard Business School was its first president. It was described by Asiaweek magazine as the best in the Asia-Pacific region in terms of executive education.[3]


The institute was established in 1968 in partnership with Ateneo de Manila University, De La Salle University, University of the Philippines, Harvard Business School, the Ford Foundation, and visionaries of the Asian academic and business communities.[4] Its campus, known as the Joseph R. McMicking Campus (after the former CEO of Ayala Corporation), is located in Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines.[5] AIM has a local board of trustees and an international board of governors.

Organization and administration

AIM is a member of the following associations:


Asian Institute of Management Building

Asian Institute of Management has four schools.

The School of Executive Education and Lifelong Learning (SEELL) is AIM's executive development arm. SEELL has two types of programs: Open Enrollment Programs and Custom Programs designed for the specific needs of the client organization. Open Enrollment Programs include programs for general management, strategy, operations, leadership and people management, innovation, and finance.

The Aboitiz School of Innovation, Technology, and Entrepreneurship (ASITE) was established in 2017 and offers five programs: the 15-month Master of Science in Innovation and Business, the 15-month Master of Science in Data Science, the 18-month Master in Entrepreneurship, a 4-year double undergraduate Data Science and Business Administration program with the University of Houston, and the first PhD in Data Science program in the Philippines. ASITE also houses an AI R&D laboratory called the Analytics, Computing, and Complex Systems (ACCeSs) lab.

Washington SyCip Memorial Fund

The Washington SyCip Memorial Fund was established after the passing of SyCip in 2017. A lead gift of US$5 million (or almost 260 million) was donated by an anonymous philanthropist.[14]


The consulting organization and publisher of global academic rankings Center for World University Rankings (CWUR) ranks the Asian Institute of Management as first among all Philippine universities and 1079th worldwide.[15]

Asian Institute of Management features several research centers and one incubator:

The Asian Institute of Management-Rizalino S. Navarro Policy Center for Competitiveness (AIM-RSN PCC) was established in 1996 and serves as AIM's public policy think tank and research arm. The Center focuses on emerging international economic trends and the demands of a competitive global trade and finance environment. AIM-RSN PCC was formerly known as the AIM Policy Center but was renamed in 2015 in honor of former Philippine Secretary of Trade and Industry Rizalino Navarro.

The Ramon V. del Rosario Sr.-Center for Corporate Social Responsibility (AIM RVR Center) focuses on corporate social responsibility and corporate governance. It was established in 2000 and conducts both research and non-research activities. The center was named after Ramon V. Del Rosario Sr., Founder and Chairman of the PHINMA Group. It manages the Hills Program on Governance established by the American International Group through its C.V. Starr Foundation.

The Team Energy Center for Bridging Leadership (CBL) was founded by Prof. Ernesto Garilao after he was inspired by a global research project on “bridging leadership” conducted by the Synergos Institute in 2000. CBL's focus is on developing “Bridging Leaders” who will address societal divides in the Philippines and in Asia. CBL was formerly called the Center for Bridging Societal Divides.

The Gov. Jose B. Fernandez Jr. Center for Banking and Finance (JBF) was launched in 1994 in honor of the late Philippine Central Bank governor Jose B. Fernandez Jr. JBF focuses on researching issues faced by the financial services industry, improving the competence of Asian financial managers, and building alliances between Asian business institutions.

The Dr. Andrew L. Tan Center for Tourism provides studies that support the Philippine tourism and hospitality industry. It was established in 2012 in partnership with Megaworld Foundation and is mainly focused on the development of sustainable tourism in the Philippines and the rest of Asia.
