The AIM MBA program is a career development, generalist qualification designed for experienced professionals. It is suited to working professionals looking to accelerate career opportunities through promotion and/or those wishing to advance their career in different sectors. The emphasis is on building knowledge and understanding of management theory and practice via core subjects in management such as managing people, money, markets, and corporate strategy and responsibility, together with a business project designed to help you capitalise on your course learning through a small scale research study combining both academic and applied professional perspectives.
To ensure the knowledge and skills you gain through the program are relevant, we maintain close links with industry. The AIM faculty consists of appropriately academically qualified senior practitioners from a broad representation of sectors, including banking and finance, higher education, technology, human resources, professional services, the not for profit sector, and government.
The workshops are usually held on the weekends. A key benefit of the workshop is to provide students with opportunities to develop relationships through networking with other students. Learn new skills on Saturday and Sunday. Apply them at the office on Monday. How does that happen? It begins with your learning materials and faculty members who inspire you with new perspectives on pressing business issues. It happens when you share your own work challenges and benefit from the collective knowledge in the classroom. As you and your learning team work in collaboration, the problem-solving isn’t just academic but practical, ensuring both personal and professional transformation.
The AIM MBA embraces a philosophy of individual initiative. No matter your field, whether your firm is large or small, corporate or not for profit, you can embrace the entrepreneurial spirit from your learning experience — and it will serve you, enabling you to identify, value, and capture opportunity throughout your career for yourself, and the organisation within which you work, and make a positive difference for an improved society.
Traditional MBA models involve several individual subjects being offered generally over a 3 months period. For a busy executive, this makes learning susceptible to external factors such as unexpected work and personal issues that could occur during this time.
The AIM MBA study model offered in Sri Lanka is based on two subjects studied over a period of 2 months. This means that students need to focus on just two subjects at a time, in addition to their usual personal and professional obligations. The fact that there are assessments rather than exams contributes to high completion rates, as students are continuously motivated and learning through doing, and capitalising on their professional experience.
Typically, students studying the AIM MBA are working professionals. They are usually in a higher management or leadership position, or currently managing a team of people within an organization, with a strong professional background. Since the majority of students possess significant management experience, the dialogue in the classroom is not just between faculty and students, but also among students themselves. Students have the opportunity to work in a team, learning from each other. This is a feature emphasised by the AIM MBA, which is consistent with the way the leading edge postgraduate education industry is evolving.
