The Asian Institute of Management

In 1965, the top schools in the Philippines, Ateneo de Manila, De La Salle and the University of the Philippines approached the Ford Foundation with competing financial assistance proposals to upgrade their respective business school offerings.

However the Ford Foundation had a larger vision in mind. That vision was to elevate business education in the entire Asian Region. Ford Foundation urged the three leading universities to consolidate their efforts to build one of the premiere business schools in Asia.

In 1968, the consortium with Harvard University as project grant administrator formed the Asian Institute of Management in Makati, Philippines.

In 2009, the Asian Institute of Management celebrates its 41st year as one of the leading Business Schools in the Asian Region.
