Inaugurated as a voluntary society on 29 January 1966, the Malaysian Institute of Management (MIM) was incorporated as a company limited by guarantee on 28 March 1975. As the national management organisation, it is our primary role at MIM to promote continuous management skills within the Malaysian enterprise, introducing the best in management practices from all corners of the world to our Malaysian companies, and building what we hope are important bridges between the private and public sectors. Independent, non-political and non-profit, MIM serves as a platform for the free exchange of management knowledge and experience, bringing together managers and organisations from all fields of human endeavour. It is also a development centre committed to enhancing and maintaining professional management standards.
Amongst MIM's core products and services, are management development programmes designed for the improvement of skills and knowledge of its participants. At MIM, our trainer facilitators are experienced trainers, practitioners and consultants, who understand and practice adult learning methodology. Our programmes are attuned to market needs, preparing participants for current and future work demands.
MIM draws its strength from its individual and corporate membership with representatives from virtually all sectors of economic activity in the country. MIM also accords Honorary Fellowships, the highest grade of membership, Court of Emeritus Fellows and General Council to outstanding individuals who have contributed significantly towards the field of management. As a professional body, each member contributes an entrance fee and annual subscriptions. These subscriptions are channeled back to members through the upgrading of facilities, improvement of existing training programmes, and development of new programmes to keep members abreast with the latest in management theories and practices. MIM Continuing Professional Development Talks provide the ideal opportunity for members to network with compeers from various industries and background.
MIM celebrates more than 40 years of experience in delivering management excellence, having not only grown in stature and membership support in forty years, but having also established itself as the authoritative voice of management in the country. MIM's national charter and challenges will require it to be innovative and forward looking to prepare Malaysian workers and the present and future generation of managers to be able to competently handle and manage new dynamic challenges, enabling us to navigate our way to compete successfully and to achieve our Malaysia 2020 vision of becoming a developed nation.
MIM is a partner for collaborative activities with other allied institutions and a member of the Asian Association of Management Organisations (AAMO).
