Asian Institute of Management or BSchool in Singapore


pacquiaoM

Hello,

I have a bit of a dilemma. I am from the Philippines and would like to pursue an MBA. I found one business school that is interesting in my country, the Asian Institute of Management. It looks like a decent program, but it doesn't show up in any rankings.

But I could go to Singapore to do the MBA - I understand that schools like National University of Singapore and INSEAD are well regarded. But how would people here see a degree from Singapore? Would companies be aware of these schools?

That seems like a question to ask to people in the Philippines. I would imagine that top Singapore MBAs like these are well respected. AIM used to be one of the top schools in Asia 10 or 20 years ago. It's now lost that position as other schools have opened up. It has a great alumni base in the Philippines: if your career is going to be focussed on the Philippines then perhaps go to AIM. Also look at the Bradford EMBA if you are in Metro Manilla.

I would assume that an MBA from AIM would have more leverage for working in the Philippines, however, I think that many of the larger companies in the country do recruit out of Singapore, because the MBA programs there are fairly strong and have higher visibility. This is worth a read:

Thanks for the suggestions. I think I'll hedge my bets, and apply to AIM and also to NUS. And in the meantime I will research about which companies are hiring from which schools, perhaps that will sway me.

I can't seem to find any other internationally accredited schools in the Philippines - does anybody know of any others?

The only other accredited programme is the Bradford part-time MBA in Manila.
