NUS MBA Students Visit AIM




Yesterday, MBA students from the National University of Singapore (NUS) Business School visited the Asian Institute of Management as part of their study tour.

The 14-strong delegation was here for a week and they visited some of the big Philippine corporation, including Jollibee, San Miguel, SM, and Ayala. I also learned that they dropped by the Philippine Senate and the Department of Finance.

For their stop in AIM, the visitors were welcomed warmly by AIM Associate Dean Prof. Ricky Lim and the committee headed by WSGSB Program Manager Rita Cucio. Prof. Patt Lontoc then gave a short lecture on the External Analysis of the Philippines, which was pretty interesting. (I then realized how I took Economics for granted during my MBA days. :P). After those activities, MBA students from AIM's Cohort 3 and NUS got together for some pleasant chat and networking.

I was able to talk to a few NUS students myself and they said they enjoyed their stay in the Philippines (despite the traffic!). Their only regret was that they spent one whole week in the Philippines and they weren't able to visit one single beach. (Ack! That's like going to Singapore and not passing by Orchard Road, Sim Lim Square and visiting the Merlion . :P)

Compared with each other MBA Singapore Program, AIM and NUS, which one is better?
