In the latest Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) Global MBA Rankings, which provides a comprehensive list of the best schools to get an MBA, the Asian Institute of Management (AIM) ranked 16th in Asia.  The QS Rankings is one of the most widely read and respected ratings in the world and has been bestowed with a seal of approval by the International Ranking Expert Group (IREG).

Of particular note is QS’s ranking methodology, which puts more value on Employability as measured through a Global Employer Survey, Return on Investment as evidenced by a 10-year tracking of graduates’ salaries pre and post MBA, and Thought Leadership that takes into account academic reputation, research impact, and the qualifications of faculty.

These criteria are particularly relevant in this time of global uncertainty when prospective students put more value not only on the competencies they stand to gain from an MBA program but also on the return on their investment.  As confirmed by the QS Global MBA Rankings, students who take up their MBA at AIM are viewed favorably by employers and significantly increase their income post-MBA .

Indeed, AIM’s lofty ranking, ahead of big-name schools in China, Japan, Korea, and India, validates the institute’s reputation and pedigree as one of the top business schools in Asia.  With over 50 years of proven excellence in developing world-class leaders and managers for the advancement of Asian businesses and societies, AIM’s alumni include countless Presidents and CEOs, highly successful business owners, and leaders of governments and non-governmental organizations.

As the pandemic produced a seismic shift in the educational landscape, AIM continues to lead the way with pioneering and cutting-edge programs designed to address the evolving demands of businesses and societies.  This is typified by the introduction of the online, part-time, 18-month MBA program in response to the clamor of young professionals across the region who intend to pursue an MBA but whose current careers and circumstances prevent them from enrolling in a full-time program.  It incorporates all the learning modules of the full-time MBA program but offers the students the convenience of online studies and a flexible schedule.  The online MBA will be offered in the 2022-2023 academic year.

A new program is the Master in Cybersecurity, which aims to provide technical and non-technical managers alike the knowhow to protect their organizations from cyber risks and data breaches.  It is designed to train managers to expertly and successfully navigate their organization’s cybersecurity challenges, adopt new technologies, and restructure the workplace to meet the complex demands of the post-pandemic digital era.  Graduates of the program will be able to develop policies, procedures, and technical solutions that comply with regional, national, and international regulations and standards.  Start date for the Master in Cybersecurity is in July 2022.

On the heels of the Master in Cybersecurity are more cutting-edge degree programs in the areas of fintech and international business law.  The Master in Financial Technology (Fintech) is a dual degree diploma program in partnership with a European business school with triple accreditation, one of the most distinguished recognitions for any business school in the world.  This program will be offered in September 2022.

The Master in International Business Law is targeted to professionals who are non-lawyers, who want to learn and understand the practice of law as it applies to international business processes and operations.  The Master in International Business Law is scheduled to launch in January 2023.

For over 50 years, the Asian Institute of Management has been a leading purveyor of management skills and knowledge, producing leaders and managers that lead, inspire, and transform Asian businesses and societies.  It is located at 123 Paseo de Roxas, Makati City, Philippines.  For more information, please visit
