Collaborations and Global Networking
A collaborative project, which continued for about a decade, was developed in 1991 between AIMS and Canadian Consortium of Management Schools (CCMS) on management education with funding from the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA). A number of joint activities such as case development workshops, research workshops, workshops on strategic management for Deans and Directors of management schools, etc. , were successfully organised, benefiting a lot of member institutes and their faculty
AIMS represents Indian Management Schools in various International fora such as European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD), Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB), Association of Management Development Institutions in South Asia (AMDISA), Global Forum on Management Education, and Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). As part of its policy of widening its global networking for facilitating sharing of experiences and developmental activities in management education at global level, AIMS associates itself with some of the leading international networking organisations. For this purpose, AIMS has signed Reciprocal Membership Agreements for five years with EFMD, ACBSP and AMDISA. Many mutually beneficial programmes are being worked out in collaboration with ACBSP and other associations – for example, the first meeting of the ACBSP’s 10th Region was held as part of AIMS Convention during August 2011; AIMS collaboration with ACBSP is in terms of AIMS helping Indian business schools in the process of getting international accreditation, etc. A few international conferences are also planned in India involving one or two of these international netwoking associates.
AIMS had a strong presence at Global Forum meet during October 2005 at Santiago, Chile; AACSB and EFMD Annual Conference during April 2006 at Paris and AACSB Conferences at Tampa, Florida USA in April 2007, at Hawai in April 2008 and EFMD Conference at Brussels, Belgium in June 2009; AACSB Annual Conference in April 2010 at Anaheim, California, and ACBSP Annual Conference in June, 2011.
