Description


AIM Accelerate, the first ever student-led business consulting competition tackling real world problems of actual businesses. It is a business consulting competition that would serve as a venue for young and talented individuals to showcase their skills and apply what they have learned in school through actual application. The competition involves SMEs from within the Philippines consulting with MBA students from AIM and other global business schools.

In parallel with the competition is an conference which aims to help our country’s SMEs who are the building blocks of development. The theme for the competition this year is ‘Collaborate Beyond Borders’.
