AIM for the Win!

The Asian Institute of Management joins the Ateneo Graduate School of Business, De La Salle University Professional Schools, University of Santo Tomas Graduate School and San Beda Graduate School of Business in the 2008 Inter-MBA Friendship Games, a friendly sports competition between business schools based here in the Philippines. The sports events for this year are badminton, basketball, bowling, chess, pool and volleyball. This year's campaign for the AIM sports teams is bannered by the rally cry "AIM for the Win!"

Last February 17, the opening ceremonies for the 2008 Inter-MBA Friendship games was held at the De La Salle University Sports Complex in Taft Avenue in Manila. The host school prepared a nice program that featured the Philippine Mount Everest team giving an inspirational talk. After the traditional parade of teams, there was the competition for Best Muse, a standard fare in sports competition opening ceremonies here. Julie Ann Chua of MBA 1 represented the school and did us proud by showing poise in the competitive environment.

In the afternoon featured two games in basketball and volleyball, where AIM was pitted against the formidable Ateneo sqauds. The two headers did result in losses for us, but I am proud the teams gave good effort and played valiantly despite being shorthanded with players in key positions. The games also were good experiences for the AIM teams' bonding and growth.

Hopefully, we will get that win we are aiming for very soon.
