A Model for a B-school

In India, the Management Education has expanded exponentially, during the last two decades. Even today, the industry is crying aloud that most MBAs are misfits in the corporate set up. Much of what is covered in the class room is simply not relevant in the Corporate world. Industry needs executives who have the right attitude — the willingness to unlearn the old and the desire to learn and upgrade skills and knowledge continuously, in an ever-evolving Business World.

Asia-Pacific Institute of Management, Delhi, which is a frontrunner in the field of management education, is leading the way for this type B-School space.

Being approved by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) and accredited by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA), the flagship programme of AIM is equivalent to MBA and recognized by the Association of Indian Universities (AIU).

The B Schools of future will be integrated with corporate parallely offering long term and short term programs. Over next few years, life long education will become the norm as executives regularly visit B schools. AS MDPs and executive training programs become increasingly important AIM is all set to achieve a leadership position in conduct of MDPs. Its state of art executive training center will offer MDPs to corporates. This focus will help faculty become industry driven and revolutionize our class room interface in the PGDM programs. AIM will also focus more on Global tie ups to become a model Business school.

The Vision of AIM is to focus on Industry aligned curriculum and practical teaching pedagogy. Toward this about 20 to 25% of the every course is being taught by the industry experts to add an industry perspective to the course.

The strategic location in heart of Delhi combined with the state-of-the-art infrastructure and the intellectual resources in form of excellent Faculty, with rich backgrounds and experience, comprise the USP of the institute.

In pursuit of excellence, AIM has many international tie-ups for students and faculty exchange programmes like Grant McEwan University, Canada, IDRAC International School of Management, France and many more to come. Development Centre is the nerve centre of AIM. The institute takes pride in its state-of-the-art library infrastructure and resources with reading rooms.

The aim of AIM has been to create true professionals, who could fit into the versatilities of the markets, working out with 3 Cs, i.e. Commitment, Clarity and Creativity.

With a well-established Centre for Corporate Relations (CCR), which facilitates the students in their career development and being an Industry-driven B-School, which makes AIM a best choice for the corporate giants that come to the campus for the placement of the sharp minds of the AIM. Many top-profiled companies like IDBI Bank, Federal Bank, Genpact, Copal Partners, NIIT, VIP Industries, Nestle, Capital IQ, American Express, Mother Diary, Network18 etc have turned up for the recruitment of the students.
