Academic Experience

ACADEMIC JOURNEY

Here at AIM, we make sure that EMBA students are able to apply in real time what they learn from the program.

The EMBA constantly challenges students to be critical, analytical, innovative, and collaborative learners who are expected to tackle about 800 real-world business cases covering economics, finance and accounting, marketing, operations, leadership, and strategy. 

Professors use the case study method as a means to train students to make informed decisions and formulate judicious strategies and action plans.

To fill the gap between the students’ previous studies and the years spent away from the academe, students take preparatory online courses one and a half months before the start of the program. Access to online courses will be given once the student has settled the reservation fee of USD 3,000 which will be deducted from the total program fee.

By the end of the program, EMBA students will become:

  • business integrators who create customer and shareholder value across functions
  • strategic and entrepreneurial thinkers who are able to craft and implement new strategies and businesses in various business environments
  • rapid and creative learners who are able to think, act, and reflect systematically for innovation
  • effective leaders and doers who can build capacity and fully commit to themselves, their teams, and organizations

INTERNATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES

EMBA students are given opportunities to travel and immerse themselves in other multicultural environments to further heighten their collaborative learning experience and expand their networks.

International Student Exchange Program

The International Student Exchange Program (ISEP) is a partnership between the Asian Institute of Management and ESADE Business School in Spain.

High-performing EMBA students can study and experience the learning and research environments of our international partner schools during their elective term.

Global Network Week

The Global Network Week enables students to pursue intensive study at a Global Network for Advanced Management (GNAM) network school in a focused course that leverages the perspectives, programs, and faculty expertise of that school. Students from partner schools likewise take courses at AIM, adding to the diversity of cultures, insights, and interactions on campus. For more information on GNAM member schools, visit: https:// globalnetwork.io/members

Global Study Tour

The Global Study Tour is a 7-10 day trip that exposes students to critical management issues and challenges confronting technology-driven companies in different countries. Visits to various organizations provide students with invaluable insights into some of the innovations, multifaceted businesses and management systems operating within the region.

Partnership Program with Yale

The AIM–YALE Partnership Program provides AIM students who have completed their EMBA degree the opportunity to pursue the YALE Master of Advanced Management (MAM) degree, through coordination with WSGSB. The YALE-MAM degree is only offered between GNAM partner schools. Students with this dual degree from AIM and Yale gain an even greater competitive edge over their peers, and can count on accelerating their careers upon graduation.  

Business Competitions

Qualified EMBA students can join local and international business competitions during the program.

CAPSTONE PROJECT

The Capstone Project is designed to be a seminal experience for students and is intended to shape them just as much as their quantitative and qualitative coursework. The Capstone Project is intended to make students:

  • discover strategic industry and market processes and opportunities
  • examine and appreciate an organization’s core from the integrative and strategic perspective of a senior executive
  • craft functional, process, or business strategies

The Capstone Project is a major requirement that the students must complete prior to graduation. It is the equivalent of a thesis. It is both practical and managerial, reflecting AIM’s tradition of developing skilled management practitioners.
