The Association of Indian Management Schools (AIMS) was formed in 1988 as a network of management schools in the country at the National Conference of the Heads of Management Education Institutions on "National Education Policy and its Implications for Management Education in the Country" held at Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore in April 1988.

AIMS has since grown into a powerful body for management schools in the country with a membership of nearly three hundred Institutes. AIMS is the second largest network of management schools in the world.

The Mission of AIMS is to function as the professional association of management education concerned with quality of management, manpower training and development, management research, curriculum development and take all such steps on its own or in collaboration with other agencies for the promotion of Management Education in India.

AIMS must function as the true representative body of management education in the country, safeguarding the interests of the sector and contributing to quality improvement on a continuing basis. AIMS must make determined efforts to develop and project its identity as the national network of the management schools system in India with its presence, voice and impact felt that respected in relevant national management and policy fora. This would call for rededicated commitment to its mission and well articulated programmes of action.
