About GSB



Your learning experience:

  • Asian Relevance. AIM has more than forty years of pioneering experience in training and developing Asian managers. During these four decades, AIM has learned much about the region's diverse cultural heritage, business systems, governance and regulatory structures. The WSGSB is the beneficiary of AIM's collective knowledge - knowledge that it shares with its students.
  • Active Learning Modes. AIM inherited from the Harvard Business School the culture of the case method. In keeping with its mission of developing managers for Asia, AIM has honed the methodology of case teaching and participative learning, encouraging students to take responsibility for their learning in the classroom, group activities, and field projects.
  • Academically and Professionally Qualified Faculty. Coming from diverse cultural and professional backgrounds, AIM professors have a wealth of experience in teaching, research, consulting, and managing in Asia.
  • Array of Nationalities. The AIM campus is multinational and multicultural. Moreover, the WSGSB offers students an international experience. Under the International Student Exchange Program (ISEP), high-performing MBA students can spend a term in one of AIM's premier partner learning institutions in Asia, Australia, Europe, and the Americas. Similarly, students from these partner schools come to AIM for one term, adding to the multi-cultural encounters on campus.
  • Asian Careers. The Career Management Office is continually building a network of national and multinational companies principally in Asia. On average, the post-MBA salary of students increases by about 150%.
  • Alliances and Networks. AIM has one of the largest and most influential networks in the region, with more than 40,000 alumni in the private, public, academic, and multilateral sectors. AIM also has strong ties to business, the academe, government, and multilateral institutions. It has active research, consulting, and student mentoring arrangements with top corporations.
  • Accreditations and Awards. AIM is the first school in Southeast Asia to achieve accreditation from the US-based Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) based on the world’s highest international standards. AIM is a recipient of the 1995 Ramon Magsaysay Award for International Understanding for setting regionwide standards for excellence and relevance in training Asian managers for Asia’s development. In 2001, AIM was honored with the 1st Award for Business School Innovation in Social Impact Management from Beyond Grey Pinstripes, a biennial survey and alternative ranking of business schools. In the 2011-2012 edition of Beyond Grey Pinstripes, AIM placed 52nd out of 149 participating institutes worldwide and No. 1 among Asian schools. Schools in the Top 100 demonstrate significant leadership in integrating social, environmental, and ethical issues into the MBA program. AIM has consistently made the Top 100 ranking since the survey started in 2001. Furthermore, AIM has been a signatory to the UN Principles for Responsible Management Education since 2008.
