AIM Launches New Evening Executive MBA Program
AIM is launching a new Evening Executive MBA (Evening EMBA) program.
The new Evening EMBA is a 20-month, part-time program designed for experienced, working professionals who want to expand their managerial competence and leadership capabilities. The inaugural class will begin in Manila in January 2012. Students will attend two classes and one learning team session every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday evening from 6:00 to 9:30 pm at the AIM Campus in Makati. Students also go on an international study tour to learn foreign business practices and meet local business leaders.
“We are excited to offer this new format for executives who have the ability and drive to make a real difference in business, and the character to be the kind of colleague people enjoy working with,” AIM associate dean Dr. Grace Ugut said during the program Open House. “The program will allow working professionals to balance work and personal life without interrupting their careers.” AIM launched the program on 10 October in an Open House attended by business executives, entrepreneurs, doctors, lawyers, and other professionals.
Forty rising executives from various industries will be accepted to the inaugural class. They will go through three modules: (1) Leading the Enterprise: The Language and Context of Business, (2) Creating and Sustaining Competitive Advantage, and (3) Leading in Emerging Markets. Between each of the three modules, participants will complete a week-long, full-time course called Leadership Residence.
In the International Study Tour, students will learn about the culture, politics, and economics of a country like India, Indonesia, etc. Participants will meet business leaders and visit companies to gain first-hand perspectives on how business is conducted.
AIM’s new Evening MBA program complements its four full-time master’s degree programs. “AIM’s newest offering gives students a great platform for growth by learning while working,” AIM dean Dr. Ricky Lim said. “The program is about the power of ideas: enhance what you know and how you perform.”
If you are a working professional with 10 years of work experience and/or six years of managerial experience, the Evening EMBA may be your career tipping point. Call Ms. Anika Paciente at 892 4011 to 25 ext. 166, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
