An Introduction to The Asian Institute of Technology & Management (AITM)
The Asian Institute of Technology & Management (AITM) was registered on 20 June 2012 to offer high-quality national and international programs in Nepal. Managed by experienced educationists and professionals, with more than three decades of proven track record and with both national and international experience, AITM wishes to be a positive agent of change, within the country, regionally and internationally, by collaborating with AIT in Thailand, IMI University Center in Switzerland, and other internationally reputed academic institutions so as to draw upon their vast experience and track record in operating in multi-national and multi-cultural academic settings. In offering international programs in Nepal, the main aim will be to transform Nepalese institutions of higher education into outstanding seats of learning, equipped to foster high-quality education, scholarship and research, to produce enlightened citizens with strong moral and ethical values.
AITM offers several national programs in association with Higher Secondary Education Board (HSEB) of Nepal and Purbanchal University (PU). AITM is currently offering 8 national programs. AITM hopes to offer additional programs of reputed national universities in the near future.
AITM has joined hands with Little Angels’ College (LAC) and Xavier Academy (XA),two privately owned and managed colleges, to form the Nepal Education Foundation – Consortium of Colleges, Nepal, now known by its acronym NEF-CCN. The main objective of forming this consortium was to create an entity that could become a national university by virtue of its physical facilities, academic programs and excellent academic track record. NEF-CCN’s long-term objective is to become a truly international university, with international programs, international faculty and students by 2020. NEF-CCN is building strategic alliances with reputable academic institutions in Asia and beyond to offer international academic programs, which can attract not only students from within the country but from Asia and beyond. NEF-CCN is fully committed to be a center of academic excellence in Asia. AITM is currently offering 2 international and 8 national programs. The total student enrollment is over 1,100.
