Over the past five decades AIMA has been able to create a niche for itself and is contributing significantly to the advancement of the management profession. AIMA and its 60 affiliated Local Management Associations have a nation-wide reach, with the support of over 3,000 institutional members and 30,000 individual members. AIMA also has strong international linkages with the Asian Association of Management Organizations(AAMO) and a number of other countries. This is slated to grow in the future. AIMA stands well poised to take on newer challenges and carve out a bigger role for itself among the management fraternity in India and abroad.
