Two of Australia’s most respected professional associations have entered into an historic partnership to provide greater education and development pathways for managers and leaders in Australia.
The Australian Institute of Management (AIM) has partnered with Governance Institute of Australia to offer reciprocal discounted rates to members of either organisation to attend courses and events made available by each organisation.
As part of this agreement, both Governance Institute and AIM will also provide a pathway into AIM’s MBA program for graduates of Governance Institute’s postgraduate programs.
AIM CEO David Pich said the partnership will combine the core competencies of two of Australia’s longest-running professional bodies and provide significant opportunities for both sets of members to get the professional development opportunities they need.
“Working with Governance Institute to provide these benefits to our Members is a logical next step for AIM as we seek to improve the capabilities of managers and leaders at every stage of their career,” Mr Pich said.
Governance Institute chief executive Tim Sheehy said that as the global economy and regulatory frameworks grow in complexity, today’s managers and executives need a strong grasp of corporate governance principles to build successful and sustainable organisations.
“Our partnership with AIM will allow our graduates to complement their advanced governance knowledge with practical management skills for leading responsible and effective organisations,” Mr Sheehy said.
“We are very pleased to partner with AIM to support the career development of our members and graduates.”
