Asian Management Institute

The Asian Management Institute was formally established in April 1997 and is based at the Ivey Business School at Western University in London, Ontario, Canada. AMI represents Ivey’s commitment to the development and dissemination of a leading body of research and teaching materials on Asian business..

The three primary activities of the Asian Management Institute are:

  1. The development of Asian educational materials (business case studies) through an International Case Development Program.
  2. The establishment of research initiatives within AMI devoted to understanding and enhancing the competitiveness of business in key Asian markets, such as China and Hong King, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, Malaysia and others.
  3. The recruitment of Asia-specialized faculty members to support Ivey’s existing programs as well as the Asia-based Executive MBA and MBA programs.

Developing and disseminating the world’s leading body of research
