International Programs

Part of every MBA or Executive MBA student’s program fees cover eligibility to participate in various international program offerings at leading universities around the world through AIM’s International Programs.

These International Programs allow students to take part in activities that develop their capabilities through immersive learning and international exposure. By participating in any of the International Programs, the students are engaged in a multicultural environment that further heightens their collaborative learning experience and at the same time build connections through a diverse network.


The International Student Exchange Program (ISEP) is a partnership between AIM and educational institutions in Asia, Australia, the Americas, and Europe. Under ISEP, qualified AIM WSGSB students are given the opportunity to spend a semester abroad or participate in short programs and experience the learning and research environments of our partner institutions. Likewise, overseas students from prestigious partner institutions take courses in AIM and share their ideas, insights, and diverse experiences with the AIM community.

Global Network Weeks (GNW)

The Global Network Weeks are weeklong intensive courses that allow AIM MBA and Executive MBA students to pursue intensive study at another network school, in a focused course that is unique to that specific region and the GNAM-member school. The GNW includes classroom sessions, tour of local businesses and cultural immersions. Participating students are expected to cover costs for travel, accommodation, and meals outside of the program.

*The Global Network Weeks are currently offered online.

Global Network Courses (GNC) or Small Network Online Courses (SNOC)

AIM MBA, Executive MBA, and Cybersecurity students may also participate in the Global Network Courses (GNCs) of Small Network Online Courses (SNOCs) offered by GNAM. These courses are for-credit courses offered virtually by a member school. The courses connect students from multiple member schools online for lectures and discussions, and collaborative team projects, developing teamwork skills and cross-cultural perspectives.

Global Virtual Teams (GVT)

Become part of the Yale School of Management course, Global Virtual Teams (GVT).

The GVT aims to engage students from GNAM network schools through live interactive learning activities. Qualified MBA and Executive MBA students will get the chance to take part in a “global virtual team” and work with other GNAM students on projects that involve group analysis and decision-making to develop the appreciation for team building across cultures and time zones.


The Dual Degree Program provides AIM students with the opportunity to pursue two degrees to complement their degree program studies. This gives students a competitive edge and acceleration in their careers as they are further exposed to rich and valuable academic experiences in the AIM international partner schools.

High-performing students can apply for a second degree after completing the required degree program requirements. The AIM Washington SyCip Graduate School of Business is in partnership with the Arizona State University’s Thunderbird School of Global Management and Yale School of Management, harnessing each institution’s offerings for advancing skills and management development of students.
