The Southeast Asian business school taps Interfolio’s Faculty Information System to attract and retain world-class faculty workforce and accelerate international expansion.
The Asian Institute of Management (AIM), the first international school of business in Southeast Asia to receive accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) recently announced the launch of a new platform to provide their faculty workforce with holistic support throughout their entire academic lifecycle at the institution.
Through a partnership with Interfolio, provider of their Faculty Information System, current and prospective faculty can now access a single workflow and reporting platform to accomplish critical tasks related to recruitment, promotion, and reporting processes.
With Interfolio, AIM will translate critical activities related to faculty recruitment, retention and development into streamlined, digital processes managed in an easy-to-use online environment. Using the Interfolio platform, faculty can more easily apply for open positions as internal candidates, manage review and promotion workflows, tell their holistic academic story and submit letters of recommendation. Administrators, meanwhile, will also use the platform to seamlessly share materials and collaborate during the hiring, review and promotion processes, reducing the burden of critical, often time-consuming administrative tasks.
With the Faculty Activity Reporting module, faculty can also use the Interfolio platform to curate and share research accomplishments, conference attendance and other scholarly activity, which they can also use during the review and promotion processes. The achievements shared using the platform will then feed into the institution’s ongoing international accreditation efforts.
The new rollout of the technology platform is part of AIM’s efforts to improve teaching and learning and increase efficiency across the institution through the adoption of new technology. AIM has earned accolades for its emphasis on innovation, including taking top honors for Technological Innovation of the Year at THE Awards Asia 2019.
