With a mix of Southeast Asian sensibilities and Hispanic traditions found nowhere else in the world, the Philippines is an ideal training ground for global Asian leader-managers. Communication and cultural understanding between locals and visiting foreigners come easily, with both English and Filipino as official languages.

Makati City, where the Joseph R. McMicking Campus is located, is a safe, clean, and friendly metropolis. It is considered the Philippines’ premier city for business, lifestyle, entertainment, and culture. It is 20-30 minutes away from Manila’s airports. From AIM, you can easily walk to Ayala Center, a vast complex of hotels and lifestyle centers offering a full range of world-class dining, shopping, and recreational experiences.

Adjacent to Makati is the old city of Manila, where you can explore colonial-era enclaves likes Intramuros and Chinatown, and watch performances at the Cultural Center of the Philippines.

Makati is part of Metro Manila, which has many parks, malls, museums, and concerts. It is an hour’s flight from tourist destinations like Boracay, Palawan, Cebu, Davao, Bohol, and Cagayan de Oro, which are ideal for beach-combing, diving, snorkeling, fishing, surfing, and whitewater rafting. You may also take a drive to sites like Laguna, Batangas, Quezon, Sagada, Banaue, Baguio, and Cagayan Valley, where you can do spelunking, camping, hiking, bird watching, and mountain climbing.
