It is one of the few business schools in Asia to be internationally accredited with the AACSB.

It was described by Asiaweek magazine (a TIME publication) as the best in the Asia-Pacific region in terms of executive education.
The Institute was established in 1968 in partnership with Harvard Business School, the Ford Foundation, and visionaries of the Asian academic and business communities. It is located in Makati City, Philippines. AIM has a local board of trustees and an international board of governors.
AIM received the Ramon Magsaysay Award for International Understanding in 1995 for training Asians in management of business and development. AIM also became the world's first graduate school of management to receive the ISO 14001 standard in 2000.
