Data Science with  Fundamental Business?

Renowned for its postgraduate and doctoral programs, the Asian Institute of Management (AIM), Makati, Philippines, is broadening its educational scope to encompass senior high school graduates. This marks AIM's pioneering foray into undergraduate studies, in collaboration with the University of Houston. Together, the institutes are introducing a dual degree program, conferring diplomas from both esteemed institutions upon successful graduates. The program's curriculum is thoughtfully crafted to merge data science with fundamental business and leadership skills, aiming to nurture future pioneers in the industry.
In recent times, the value of collaboration in education has been increasingly recognized. As industries evolve rapidly, the real-time exchange of knowledge between academia and industry can significantly enhance educational relevance and bridge the gap between the two sectors. Cross-disciplinary collaboration enables educational institutions to foster greater creativity, innovation, and problem-solving capabilities, thereby providing superior service to both students and the wider community.

Over the past many years, AIM has consistently led the way in collaborative business education. For instance, in the previous year, the institute, in partnership with the Cambridge Family Enterprise Group, launched an innovative 'multi-generational business' program. Founded in 1968 through a joint initiative between Ateneo de Manila University, De La Salle University, the University of the Philippines, Harvard Business School, the Ford Foundation, and prominent figures from the Asian academic and business communities, AIM has a long-standing tradition of cooperation. This edition of CEO Insights Asia magazine celebrates the institute's distinguished alumni, who have consistently been pioneers in innovation and business leadership.
