WASHINGTON SYCIP GRADUATE SCHOOL OF BUSINESS
Washington SyCip, Chairman Emeritus
The end of World War II may have left the Philippines a devastated republic but it also brought new opportunities for local businesses and industry. With many schools still rebuilding, there was a great need for a world-class graduate business program that would train the growing number of young entrepreneurs and professionals in the country.
It was against this backdrop that SGV Group Founder, Washington SyCip and other businessmen brought together top educational and business organizations to design and establish a full-time MBA program that would meet the demands of a developing and integrating Asian region. This idea eventually evolved into what we now know as the Asian Institute of Management.
For more than 50 years, AIM’s Washington SyCip Graduate School of Business has been the training ground for the leaders and managers of Asia’s emerging markets. Since 1968, some 7,279 graduates from 50 countries have used their AIM MBA and AIM EMBA as their passport to exciting, rewarding, and fulfilling careers.
