The Academy for Information & Management (AI&M) is a spin-off organization originating from the University of Amsterdam; it is built on more than 25 years of experience in executive teaching in the area of information management.
The advent of AI&M is in line with the turmoil management is increasingly going through at this moment; information-based agility and innovation are central to any attempt to redefine management. The raison d’être of AI&M is in the strong belief that up-to-date management education and training should be rooted in the encounter of reflective learners, mirrored in its adage “Taking learners seriously”. This runs against the idea of learning wherever you are and whenever you want through courses increasingly offered via internet.
The indispensable creativity needed to anticipate organizational and societal disorder can, in the opinion of AI&M, only be achieved through in-depth dialogue between diversified participants from private and public organizations, academic institutions and the creative industry; in this constructive dialogue, we are all learners. The AI&M’s approach is to all intents and purposes learner-centered.
Further, AI&M takes a design-oriented stance in this process: not explaining the past (as many academics do), but co-building the future is the ultimate goal of its agenda. Through AI&M Wise, its unique eclectic method, AI&M is in the frontline of advancing (information)management as designing, i.e. as changing the world in a responsible and mindful way.
